Concerts

Anoraak and Teen Daze at Bardot October 13

If you're into electronica, chances are you'll be riding that chillwave of excitement into Bardot for the club's second installment of its Living Room Sessions. The speakeasy's new Thursday-night concert series kicked off last week with Junior Boys. And now we're all set to indulge in a dose of superrelaxed, computer-generated jams.

French act Anoraak will drop laid-back, dreamy dance music that's dripping with understated attitude. Don't fear le français, though. All of Anoraak's lyrics are sung in English. And no stranger to Miami, the band's frontman, Euro cutie Frédéric Rivière, spun two DJ sets at Bardot earlier this year. Vancouver's Teen Daze will also headline. A little trippy and somewhat sleepy, this solo Canadian has created some beautiful tracks perfect for chilling out. Supplementing these out-of-towners will be Miami native Millionyoung, displaying his spinning skills.

Our town is on the frontline of this growing heady chillwave sound, fitting for those who want to dance and lounge at the same time. Plus it's sort of your job as an Internet user and citizen of the audio world to stay plugged into a growing genre coined by a blogger.
