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

ince wandering away from the pseudo-industrial barrios of their native Uruguay almost a half-decade ago, the dark, druggy boys of Monoblock -- Martin TC and Guikle -- have survived and thrived by zigzagging through the secret underground tunnels that connect all international party meccas. Thus far, the techno-house experimentalists have come surface-side for big gigs at distant spots like Berlin's Watergate, the Monza Club in Ibiza, and Brussels' Fuse. 

Finally though, next Friday, Monoblock will make the aboveground scene at our own Electric Pickle. Presented by Un_Mute, a.k.a. Benjamin Acero, the show will include support sets by local minimalists Dsan Powell, Mario Liberti, and Tuki Romero -- not to mention trippy visuals by Eli Q. It'll be so good that it's basically mandatory. 

Therefore, if you haven't already tasted Martin and Guikle's spaced-out, cerebral sounds, go cop your pass and your intoxicants, then meet us in the tunnel to the Pickle. When you hear that weird interstellar thunder that sounds like six separate stereos at the bottom of a hell-deep K-hole, playing Nintendo-ish blips and bleeps, thick bass thump, and whispery ghost vocals ... That's the Monoblock. 

Friday, September 4. Electric Pickle, 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Show starts at 10 p.m., and tickets are $15 through Wantickets.com. Ages 21+ with ID. 754-422-2917; Facebook.com/BenjaminAceroMiami

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.
