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

The motto is "Nothin' but the goods." And like some punch-drunk baby boxer beating a gong with bare bloody fists, the seven-week-old Champion Sound throwdown brings the noise in a big way. For proof of pure party acumen, just take a quick and dirty MySpace tour with a few members of the rapidly ballooning CS musical alumni, including hip-hop jam band Fusik, hometown funk hero DJ Le Spam, and local street trio Basic Vocab

Now, edging toward its eighth edition, this Champ baby is growing bigger, better, and bolder. Next Wednesday July 8, pianist/vocalist/MPC master Ayro (AKA Jeremy Ellis) flies down from the 313 (Detroit, motherfucker) to the 305 for his induction into the CS Hall of Noise and Punch-Drunkeness. Showing up in support will be DJs Santiago and Maneuvers, plus party residents Mr. Brown, Sire Esq., and A-Train. To get drunk yourself, there's $5 beer all night and free well drinks for the females from 10-11:30. So yeah, go help that little big guy bang the gong. 

Wednesday, July 8. Electric Pickle, 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Show starts at 10 p.m., and admission is $5. 305-456-5613; Facebook.com/ChampionSound

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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
