Eye on Miami: Afrojack, Fat Joe, and More

It's not easy having eyes all over the scene, being around to take in the wild visuals at all the worthwhile places in the city. There are, however, those parties and gallery openings where a fortunate photographer can point and shoot. Every week, in collaboration with WorldRedEye, New Times brings you a solid recap of the recent experiences you may have missed around Miami. It's impossible to be everywhere, but hey, we can try to keep our Eye on Miami.
