Things To Do

Snoop Dog, Tegan and Sara, Bed Race, and Carlos Mencia


  • Three members of Surfer Blood play Big Black-style bedlam as the band Weird Wives. They have their first Miami show tonight at Guest Lab.
  • The Dogfather himself, Snoop Dog, appears at Mansion tonight. Think he'll actually perform or just smile, toke, and nod?
  • Josh Blue won the previous year's Last Comic Standing. Tonight he starts his standup run at the Miami Improw, but you should prep first by reading our Q&A with him.


  • Tegan and Sara, identical Canadian twins who play "moody folk-pop with

    New Wave and punk undertones," will perform at Miami's Bayfront Park on

    Saturday. They'll be joined by Paramore. Or is it the other way around?

  • Michael Arcos's band Jane Jane Pollock plays Sweat Records, but more interestingly, his film

    Angel Eyes 2: J-Lo's Innermost Secrets, filmed in Cutler Ridge, will

    also screen the same night.


  • Every year, people have too much to drink at Wet Willies then they ride

    speedracer beds down Coconut Grove's Grand Avenue. That's right, this

    Sunday at 2 p.m., is the Great Grove Bed Race, aptly sponsored this year

    by 1-800-411-PAIN.

  • Chill out on one of Miami's most peaceful lawns at the bayside retreat, the Deering Estate. This Sunday, they host a Labor Day Blues

    Picnic so bring a blanket and chillax, guys.


  • There's no labor on Labor Day so laze about all day with one hand

    shoved down your pants. You gotta rest up, because Carlos Mencia

    performs at the Miami Improv for a one-night-only show. Keep an eye out for our two-part interview with him.
