Feeling pumped up this morning? Well you should be!
You live in a city where the music never ends. And by living in such a musical hot spot, that means that there are always plenty of shows to crash almost every night.
Here are the five best concerts going down in Miami this week, from pop to trap to Latin rock.
¡Que viva la musica!
Aeroplane. With Santiago Caballero, Panic Bomber, and Pirate Stereo. Tuesday, July 9, 10 p.m., at Bardot, 3456 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 305-576-7750; bardotmiami.com. Tickets cost $12-$20 plus fees via showclix.com. Once you get a taste of Aeroplane's smooth, chill, electric vibes, "you won't forget it."
Beyoncé. Wednesday, July 10, 8 p.m., at the American Airlines Arena, 601 Biscayne Blvd, Miami; 305-960-8500; aaarena.com. Tickets cost $48-$253 plus fees via ticketmaster.com. Who run the world? Girls. Who run this motha? Sasha Fierce. And she's gathering up all the "Single Ladies," so if you like it, you better put a ring on it.
Carlos Vives. Saturday, July 13, 8:30 p.m., at the American Airlines Arena, 601 Biscayne Blvd, Miami; 305-960-8500; aaarena.com. Tickets cost $12-$143 plus fees via ticketmaster.com. Carlos Vives is back with his folky Colombian pop and he's gonna make you dance your ass off "Como Le Gusta A Tu Cuerpo."
UZ. With Sluggers. Saturday, July 13, 11 p.m., at Grand Central, 697 North Miami Ave., Miami; 305-377-2277; grandcentralmiami.com. Tickets cost $10-$15 plus fees via ticketfly.com. It's that trap shit! In the words of Diplo, "UZ tunes are drunken energy sub bass and cartoon horn stabs that make my stomach feel weird and my feet shuffle."
La Vela Puerca. With Catupecu Machu. Sunday, July 14, 8 p.m., at Grand Central, 697 North Miami Ave., Miami; 305-377-2277; grandcentralmiami.com. Tickets cost $27-$30 plus fees via ticketfly.com. Good luck trying to fight El Impulso of dancing to la Vela Puerca's soft, Uruguayan rock.
