Tonight, spend some time with Frankie Beverly and Maize at the AAA, a group that does soul music like no other and has a live show that is nothing less than electrifying. And really, pure. For something more intimate, check out Jazzilla at Books & Books, Coral Gables. Jazz music, but way ferocious like that other "-zilla." Oh, and Christian Martin is spinning electro/techno/house at the White Room for those who need a soundtrack that's, er, faster.
Last Saturday, the torrential rains didn't scare away all of the art walkers out for Second Saturday. However, if you were one of the many were deterred by a little wet weather, check out this guide again and get into it. FYI: the crowds will be light and there's no free booze, we can't say the same for these events Saturday and these on Sunday.
