You keep running up that hill. And if you get to the end early enough, you might get to some free beer. But you're definitely going to get an earful of sweet art-pop sounds and enough chill, lo-fi grooves to settle your rambling soul.
Join Sweat Records during Art Basel Miami Beach as the local record shop gets down to the fuzzy sounds of the buzz-worthy Chromatics and delightfully weird duo Prince Rama at the Gusman Center for the Performing Arts.
It's gonna be laidback and just the right kind of awesome.
It's Sweat Records first-ever theatrical presentation, and you should be there as a good, supportive member of the Miami music-slash-art community. You're going to be tired of walking around all week, looking at the paintings and the people and trying to drive through the horrible mess.
By Friday, you'll deserve an evening of what Pitchfork calls "Best New Music" and some conceptual neon soundscapes.
Prince Rama is going to give you the best of bizarre Brooklyn, and the Chromatics will basically bring the Drive soundtrack to life.
Plus, free beer if you get there early. 'Nuff said.
Chromatics and Prince Rama. Presented by Sweat Records and M.O. Friday, December 7. Gusman Center for the Performing Arts, 174 E. Flagler St., Miami. The party starts at 8 p.m. and tickets cost $20 via tickets.gusmancenter.org.Call 305-374-2444 or visit gusmancenter.org.
