Over the last year or so, Iggy Pop sort of became the patron saint of Miami, showing up everywhere from limited-edition Sweat Records T-shirts to random openings during Art Basel. He's been showing the city a lot of love lately, taking CNN reporters around the mainland, shouting out the Jacuzzi Boys on the Urban Outfitters site, and even, perhaps a little crazily, letting me into his "clubhouse."
So of course Churchill's Pub
, in his adopted favorite neighborhood of Little Haiti, is putting on a little something to celebrate the rock god on his birthday, Wednesday, April 21. It's meant to be an all-covers tribute night, and the venue tweeted earlier that it's still looking for bands to play
. Of course, every night there features something like 10 acts, at least, so there's a lot of stage time to go around. If you already know a few Iggy Pop / Stooges covers, reach out to [email protected]
Will he be there? Well, the guy's a jet-setter, but he has professed his love for Churchil's publicly, so one can dream....
