Around Town: Tattoolapalooza, Banksy, USA v. Ghana, Spike Lee, and Kid Sister


  • Tattoo artists from all over country will descend on Miami's downtown Hyatt this weekend for the three-day Tattoolapalooza. There'll be tattoo contests, marauding evil clowns, inking seminars, gnarly bikers, and goth punk bands. If you're going to get inked, this is the place to do it.
  • Yes, it is genetically possible for there to be two funny guys born into the same family. Charlie Murphy doesn't play second fiddle to brother Eddie. He gets his own laughs on his Comedy Central special, I Will Not Apologize, on The Chapelle Show, and in his book The Making of a Stand-Up Guy. He performs at the Miami Improv all weekend long.
  • OK, so house music is kinda of annoying. But it wasn't always the

    relentless untz-untz pulsing out of megaclubs and South

    Beach bikini shops. Back in the '80s, in San Francisco's warehouse

    district, house was cool, and Doc Martin was the DJ driving it all. Hear

    him spin tonight at the Electric Pickle.


  • After that freakin ref blew our totally legit goal against Slovenia,

    the USA soccer team raised everyone's blood pressure again by saving their

    winning goal against Algeria for the final minutes. This Saturday, USA plays Ghana, so start saving up all your West African insults. Review our list of world cup bars

    and find a patriotic watering hole to watch it in.

  • Provocateur and filmmaker Spike Lee makes two appearances in Miami on Saturday

    for the American Black Film Festival. First, he teaches an

    art-of-filmmaking class and then he talks with CNN's Soledad O'Brien about his

    new documentary,

  • If you haven't checked out Grand Central yet, you'll have another excuse

    this Saturday night when Chi-town hipster-hopper Kid Sister and

    electro-meringue MC Maluca perform.

  • Our film reviewer called the Banksy film Exit Through the Gift Shop a

    "definitive portrait of street-art counterculture" and a " hilarious

    exposé on the gullibility of the masses who embrace manufactured

    creative personas." It screens at the incredibly mainstream AMC Sunset

    Place 24.


  • Graduate from bumper cars to go-kart racing this Sunday by watching Homestead-Miami Speedway's

    Rmax Challenge, where tiny vehicles, driven by fire-retardant

    drivers, zoom at 120 mph.
