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

Before monotheism ruined the fun, humans worshiped a female god (hell, yeah!) and held huge, outdoor fuck parties to honor the beginnings and endings of seasons. Instead, we now scrunch into hard-backed pews to be lectured; spend our entire Friday nights in the dark because we're not allowed to flip the lights on; or carry carpets around and set our watches to beep five times day. Thanks a lot, Abraham. 

The organizers of Death to the Sun (a farewell to summer festival) say, "Fuck that noise," and they're on a mission to reclaim Miami for the pagans. The first step was securing the American Legion backyard (6445 NE 7th Ave, Miami) as the venue, then signing an orgy-load of local bands such as Electric Bunnies, Surfer Blood, Dino Felipe, and BFGF. And of course, since capitalism is the evil extension of Judeo-Christian ideology, admission and parking are free, and draft beers cost just $2. 

Add a slip-n-slide and a kiddie pool (no joke); six different DJs; art, fashion, video, and tattoo performances and you've got a goddamn religious experience on Saturday, September 26. Show up at 1 p.m. and never go home again. Call 305- 759-0412 or email magickcityblues@hotmail.com.

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.
