DJ Shadow and XXYYXX Bring Experimental, Evil Beats to Wynwood's III Points Festival

Back in December, DJ Shadow had kind of a weird experience in Miami.

He took the booth at Mansion, just to be kicked off for not playing enough big-room house music. It's been this great thing for hipsters to lament and bitch over, but with the inaugural III Points Festival, the music geeks got their revenge.

"It was never about me and the city," Shadow said, introducing himself, "it was about me and like five people. Now, I'm here DJing this for you, and by the way, there's no laptop here."
