Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Looks like Afrobeta has caught up with the times and have started a weblog, frequently shortened to "blog." This is an online journal of sorts that may be made available to the public or to only a select subset of readers, depending on the author's choice. In this case, the blog is public and available for your perusal. The main author appears to be Cuci Amador herself. 

You might be asking yourself, "Why should I give a fuck?" You should care because Afrobeta is one of the most fun and best bands to come out of Miami in a while.

The first blog lets us know that Afrobeta hosts the show at Jazid every Tuesday and that before they take over, a fellow named Ben operates an open mike poetry thing. I am assuming that the Ben in question is none other than Nastie's brother, Ben Shahoulian, the same fellow who set up next to the Poem Depot at Artwalk with some hand drummers and a megaphone not so long ago. Keep your eyes peeled and glued to this blog.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
