Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Happy Monday, Miami! We can guess how many of you are feeling on this bright post-Easter day: You're sluggish from ham consumption and ten too many chocolate bunnies. You feel guilt about said gluttony, guilt only made worse by that once-a-year church visit and the latest TV retelling of Christ's crucifixion. 

Today is a new day, however, and you can shake off that shame and get right back to sinning and winning, starting with this collection of free fun. 


  • Holocaust Remembrance Concert at FIU Urban Studios: The Amernet String Quartet members Michael Klotz and Jason Calloway with pianist Heather Coltman present works by Korngold, Zeitlin, Shul, Block, and more. 



  • The Theory of Everything at SoundScape: Catch the Oscar-nominated love story of Stephen Hawking and Jane Wilde.
  • Curator Walkthrough at ArtCenter: Join Ombretta Agró Andruff for a tour of "Attitudes in Latitudes: The Northern Wild Explores the Tropics," highlighting local and Canadian artists' connection to the landscape around them.  


  • Gay Pride Welcome Party at The Gaythering: Get free admission, happy hour prices, and mingle with all the newbies in town for the weekend festivities. 
  • Comedy Records “The South Beach Album” at The Fillmore: Can't afford to catch the headliners at the South Beach Comedy Festival? Mat Cat Theatre and Comedy Records presents a free live recording of Miami comedians' stand up — hosted by New Times alum, Daniel Reskin.


  • Kate MacDowell at Mindy Solomon Gallery: Attend the opening reception for the sculptural and installation-based artist's solo show, "Completely Exposed," which explores the human relationship with the animal kingdom.
  • River Cities Festival at Miami Springs: Free river boat rides, live bands, food, drinks (and a dog show!).
  • Gay Pride Festival and Parade: Show your pride and get ready for the revelry — Mario Lopez is waiting!

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
