This week in Miami, there has been a glitch in the time-space continuum. It’s 2008, Barack Obama is president, your T-Mobile Sidekick is buzzing, and you have five seasons of Breaking Bad to look forward to.

Just kidding, but the Black Eyed Peas and Paris Hilton will both be in the Magic City this week. Also on the agenda: Lee Foss brings his Repopulate Mars event to Club Space, and Cuban jazz trumpeter Arturo Sandoval performs back-to-back shows at the North Beach Bandshell.
