Bayfront Rocks to the Occasion

As we wave goodbye to a summer of triple-digit heat indexes and swampy air, we welcome the season that makes Northerners salivate all over their snowy sidewalks. What better time is there in Miami for an outdoor concert? That’s why the folks at the Downtown Development Authority are bringing back the DWNTWN Miami Concert Series for a second year. After a successful first season, the monthly sunset happy-hour event — held every second Friday of the month — will kick off this week at the Tina Hills Pavilion at Bayfront Park. Enjoy music by two of Miami’s favorite local acts — Afro-Cuban fusion band Suénalo and local roots reggae group Jahfe — while sipping cocktails and enjoying a stunning view of Biscayne Bay. The show begins at 5:30 p.m. and, like the ones that will follow, is free and open to the public.
