Mike Bones and Brian DeGraw. Max Fish is the coolest no-bullshit bar on Manhattan's L.E.S., and in celebration of its 20th birthday, the good folks at OHWOW have recreated the bar here in Miami, in its entirety. Bonus for those of us missing out on our own late beloved dive bar: It's in the old PS14 space.
Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.
Although band's don't really fit in the real Max Fish-- though they've been known to squeeze in the back -- PS 14 was, of course, roomier, so this pop-up bar features live bands and cheap drinks every night. It opens on Wednesday, December 2 and runs through Sunday, December 6; the bar is open from 6 p.m. to 4 a.m. every night. Here's the nightly line-up of music. Movie and video screenings are promised, too, along with "impromptu DJ sets. Knowing the downtown-cool cast of characters who hang out at both the real-deal bar in New York, and at O.H.W.O.W. down here, those ought to impress.
Max Fish pop-up bar, 28 NE 14th St., Miami. Admission is free every night. 305-633-9345; oh-wow.com

Tonight features the moody troubadour Mike Bones
, along with Brian DeGraw
, better known as a part of the artsy musical collective Gang Gang Dance
Friday, December 4
Despite the jam band-sounding name, Endless Boogie
is actually a Brooklyn band that, at this point, remains fairly overlooked. This act is heavy in the best way -- somewhere between metal, psychedelia, and the classic hard rock of acts like Cream. Tonight they team up with the similarly swirly Miami favorites Jacuzzi Boys
, who take their psych in a more surf-punk kind of direction.
Saturday, December 5
TV Baby and Jailbait. T.V. Baby's a shadowy, lone figure with a vague connection to A.R.E. Weapons and a muttering stye of singing, like Lou Reed rambling over experimental electro.
