We missed Afrobeta's opening-night set at Ultra Music Festival. But the Miami duo also played an action-packed closeout to Ultra on Sunday. And we caught it all on camera.
The party animals were out in full force and the band's Cuci Amador and Tony Smurphio were in strong shape. They played electro, and dubstep originals, and covered Devo's "Whip It," Nirvana's "Nevermind," and did a remix of the Looney Tunes theme song.
Singer Cuci said, "We do this because we love you! And for the streets of Miami, bitch!" And during "Do You Party?," they proved it, inviting the crowd onto the stage;
In the middle of one song, a handful of gate crashers ran through the set with city cops chasing them on foot. There was also an Ultra robot, a dog in a gas mask, and even a stilt lady up there with them.
They also announced their new mixtape, Wig Party, a free download that's available today. And here are some pictures.
