305 Fest: Four Days, Five Venues, 57 Bands

Miami's always had good punk rock, even when the rest of the U.S. didn't know it.

Our city's punk scene has been world class since the mid '70s and the Magic City's actually developed a sound of its own, steeped in tropical sludge and sun-bleached scuzz.

That's why 305 Fest has been able to ramble on for about a decade now, in one incarnation or another, putting forth an annual deluge of homegrown bands peppered with out-of-towners.
