St. Pat's Wynwood at Wynwood Marketplace

Wynwood Marketplace will be awash in green when St. Pat's Wynwood returns on Thursday. Organized by Swarm and presented by Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey, the event promises to bring the luck of the Irish to the neighborhood with live music, DJs, plenty of green beer, and good ol' Irish whiskey. Partygoers can also share the celebration on Instagram and TikTok with festive photo backdrops. If you dress in green, you'll receive a free drink ticket. 4 p.m. to 3 a.m. Thursday, March 17, at Wynwood Marketplace, 2250 NW Second Ave., Miami; Admission is free.

Jay Thomas at North Beach Bandshell

On Thursday, local singer-songwriter Jay Thomas presents his new album, Butterfly Parade, in its entirety at the North Beach Bandshell. During the lockdown, Thomas used the abundance of time to explore the anxiety and uncertainty he and everyone else experienced the last two years. The album's tracks are being slowly doled out, with the singles "Scream, Butterfly" and "Dream of the Underworld," leading the charge — but you'll be able to experience the full project during Thursday's performance. 8:30 p.m. Thursday, March 17, at North Beach Bandshell, 7275 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-672-5202; Admission is free with RSVP.

Viernes Culturales

Every third Friday of the month, Viernes Culturales invites everyone to enjoy the rich culture found in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood. Along SW Eighth Street, encounter live music at Domino Park and works by over 30 local artists and artisans. Need to put it all into context? Dr. Paul George, HistoryMiami's resident historian, leads a guided walking tour starting at 7 p.m. 4 p.m. Friday, March 18, SW Eighth Street between 14th and 17th avenues, Miami; Admission is free.

Jacuzzi Boys at Las Rosas

What's better than one Jacuzzi Boys show? Two shows, of course. On Friday and Saturday, the local garage-rock trio will hit the stage at Allapattah dive bar Las Rosas for two nights of rock 'n' roll.

In 2020, the Boys released the single "The Pits" on Jack White's Third Man Records. 9 p.m. Friday, March 18, and Saturday, March 19, at Las Rosas, 2898 NW Seventh Ave., Miami; 786-780-2700; Admission is free.
