Miami Music Festival Preview: People From Venus, Playing Tonight

Here are a few randomly selected recommendations among the many acts playing the Miami Music Festival. Visit MiamiMusicFestival.org for individual venue details. Many of these places you've never heard of are subdivisions of real venues, with made-up names just for festival purposes. Others venues are tents; Transit Lounge alone will host a couple, as well as putting on separate showcases within its walls. Three-day festival wristbands are $50 ($35 for students); one-day wristbands are $25 ($20 for students). Otherwise individual show admission is $10. 


People From Venus: Miami's previously best-kept secret, these Anglophilic indie rockers touch on glam and electro with a hefty dose of big hooks. What makes them stand out from the ret of the Brit-loving pack are the outer-spacey melodies and supple, reedy vocals courtesy of frontman Paul Isaac. 

Friday, 10 p.m. at Mecca Discotekka, 950 NE 2nd Ave.
