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

Glass Candy sound like their on a space shuttle mission somewhere to the deep, dark recesses of the Galaxy Disco co-piloted by Lydia Lunch and Giorgio Moroder. Well, Ida No and Johnny Jewel will be temporarily landing the Shuttle B/E/A/T/B/O/X at the Vagabond on September 11th. 

Sweat Records, who's presenting the show, hasn't made the announcement on their blog yet, but did mention it in an email over the weekend and it's confirmed by the band's MySpace

Last time the Italians Do It Better duo was in town they put on a triumphant show at Studio A with Ariel Pink's Haunter Graffiti during Art Basel 2007. Unfortunately Pink's grumpy drummer seriously bummed out our spaced-out euphoria, so we're happy they'll be back for a hopefully drama free show. 

Glass Candy recently released a 12" of their Geto Boys sampling "Iko Iko" rework on Italians, and Sally Shapiro producer Johan Agebjorn contributed a remix of their "The Chameleon" to Lo Recording's excellent Milky Disco 2 comp. Their video for "Digital Versicolor" is after the cut. 

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.
