Outside the Box

No band has risen more quickly to the top of Miami’s indie scale than Radioboxer. The relatively young group seemingly came out of nowhere in 2008 and amassed a following that would make most veterans of the local music scene jealous. With the release of its first full-length, Radio Drama, the band proved it means business by meshing electronic backbeats with ska, garage, and surf rock, a combination that has led to comparisons to another female-fronted group, No Doubt.

If you’re wary of Radioboxer’s appeal, check it out this Saturday at the Annex. Inspired by Radio Drama’s sound, the space will be outfitted with “carnies” and works by local artists, and there will even be a 1940s carnival-fashion freak show that the band promises will combine “red carpet” ambiance with the vibe of eclectic music.

The show begins promptly at 9 p.m. and is free with RSVP.
