Wynwood Pride with Charli XCX, Honey Dijon, and Derek Carter at Oasis
Pop music’s best-kept secret
, Charli XCX, headlines day one of Wynwood Pride, performing at the newly opened venue-cum-food-hall the Oasis, which will act as the main stage for the two-day festival. The “Vroom Vroom” singer is a perfect choice to kick off festivities. She's known as a pioneer in the hyperpop genre, and her work has slowly seeped into public consciousness after she cultivated a loyal underground fandom. Day two is equally exciting, with electronic powerhouse Honey Dijon and house-music legend Derek Carter behind the decks. 5 p.m. Friday, and 3 p.m. Sunday, at the Oasis, 2335 N. Miami Ave., Miami; oasiswynwood.com. Tickets cost $80 to $180 via tixr.com.
Rachel Angel at Oak Garden
Singer-songwriter Rachel Angel will showcase new music at the Oak Garden on Saturday — her first live performance since the beginning of the pandemic. Angel will be joined on stage at the idyllic open-air venue by a full band, preceded by sets from Nick County, who recently dropped the first single, “Jesus Is Dead,” from his upcoming album, Colorful Corner of Eastern Pennsylvania
(due out later this year). Ben Moats, Rick Moon, and Corey Perez complete the stacked lineup of indie-folk magic. 8 p.m. Friday, at Oak Garden, 791 NW 20th St., Miami; 786-273-1074; oakgardenmiami.com. Tickets cost $10 via eventbrite.com.
Triller Fight Club at LoanDepot Park
Update: Triller announced that its Triller Fight Club event has been postponed to August 14.
Teófimo López and George Kambosos Jr. face off on Saturday night at LoanDepot Park for the lightweight championship, but Triller Fight Club's scope goes beyond boxing. Snoop Dogg and Mario Lopez host the star-studded evening, with Meek Mill, Myke Towers, Farruko, Lunay, and Gente de Zona completing a musical lineup that looks more like a top music-festival bill than peripheral entertainment for a sporting event.
3:30 p.m. Saturday, at LoanDepot Park, 501 Marlins Way, Miami; 305-480-1300; thefightclub.com. Tickets cost $40 to $400.
Obsidian, Laboratory, and Violet Silhouette at Poorhouse
South Floridian tropigoths, it's time to re-emerge. On Saturday, Fort Lauderdale’s live-music treasure trove Poorhouse will host a local lineup of goth brilliance in a free night of live music. Wilton Manors goth outfit Obsidian, industrial heads Laboratory, and dark-pop Violet Silhouette make up the bill, making for a long-awaited night of synth-charged headbanging. 9 p.m. Saturday, at Poorhouse, 110 SW Third Ave., Fort Lauderdale; 954-522-5145; poorhousebar.com. Admission is free.
Masisi at TBA
On Saturday, Black queer diaspora party Masisi is back in action for the first time since the start of the pandemic, throwing a Juneteenth celebration to write home about. Honoring Black liberation, the party will showcase sonic libations from Miami’s best and brightest Black and queer selectors, such as DJs Bapari, Tweak, Princess Peggie, Sydfalls, Pressure Point, and Marcelline Steele. While the party is all about underground music, the event will be held at an open-air venue, but the exact location will remain under wraps until the night of the event. 10 p.m. Saturday, at location TBA. Tickets cost $10 to $20 via eventbrite.com.
The Juneteenth Experience at North Beach Bandshell
