Oh, boy. That was a lot.
Labor Day Weekend delivered more music than our poor ears could handle, and now we will nap forever. Or, at least until Friday, because then it'll be time to do this all again.
I mean, how could we miss out on a chance to see Flume, the hottest Australian producer in the universe?
Ever since Flume — real name Harley Edward Streten — dropped his highly anticipated sophomore album, Skin, he's been one of the hottest tickets in whatever town he happens to step foot in. Life's good for the 24-year-old. It wasn't just the momentum of a meteor that Skin gave him; he also got his first platinum song with the breakout single "Never Be Like You," a hazy electro ballad that's somehow fitting for both a chill night on the cough and a smoky dance floor at 4 a.m. And now he's coming to Miami for not one, but two back-to-back shows.
There's a bit of bad news before we get you too excited, though: The shows are sold out. We know. It sucks.
But this is 2016 and the internet exists and you're crafty, so the good news is there's plenty of time to figure something out. Last time Flume was in town, he performed at the now bulldozed Grand Central — but that was just a DJ set. This time he's playing live, his talents on full display.
