So, when we were browsing through all the things to do this weekend, we had way more moments of OMG I'm totally doing that this weekend than we normally do.
Mamma Mia!? Not ashamed to know all the words to every song. Thanks, ABBA. Art Walk? Done. JORGE DREXLER?! Someone's (read: me) is splurging on a concert this weekend! The Band Perry? That one song about dying young is the only song we know, but it's awesome!
Go have a good time this weekend, Miami. Whatever your fancy is.
Emeli Sandé: She wins for the best name ever.
OLA Music Fest: Elastic Bond, Mr. Pauer, Meridian Brothers, Dengue Dengue Dengue!, and more to take the stage.
Afrojack: Where is Afrojill?
Mamma Mia!: Here I go again...
Peruvian Fest: One word: Pisco!
Urban Race Miami: Go work those killer calves and glutes, Miami.
Art Walk: Now that Second Saturdays are in the shadow of Thursday Art Walks, we shall show 'em who's boss.
Jorge Drexler: Seriously one of the greatest musicians of our time.
The Band Perry: Anyone ever notice how they've totally got glam-rock hair going on?
Miami/Broward Carnival Showcase: A touch of spice from south of the Equator.
