We came. We saw. We YouTubed it.

Last night's Miami Micro-Show was basically the weekend's best deal. It cost $0.25 or nothing. (Roofless Records and the End were both pretty lax about collecting admission fees.) You had B.Y.O.B., communal barbecue, and 14 bands. So, really, there was no excuse for skipping out.

But if you were somehow too busy between 10:45 and 11:01 p.m. to participate in South Florida's first ever festival of the 60-second sonic sprint, just see the cut for roughly a quarter hour's worth of offensive noise, machine-assisted acappella, auto-tune, arty pranks, and pastry-related musical mishaps.
