Miami's Best Free Concert of the Weekend: No Regular Play at the Electric Pickle

This weekend, fight the Zika paranoia in Wynwood and head to the Electric Pickle to see the Brooklyn-based No Regular Play live this Saturday. Unless, well, you're pregnant or trying to get pregnant. If that's the case, sorry, but no Wynwood for you.

But for the rest of us nonfertile, healthy folks, it's Pickle time. The duo, which is touring in support of the recently released album Can’t You See, puts together a very impressive performance that combines a live trumpet with a traditional DJ set. This will only be the group's twelfth live performance ever.  

Gregory Paulus and Nicholas DeBruyn, the two who make up No Regular Play, have been longtime friends and met when they were just eight years old growing up in St. Paul, Minnesota, as we learned when New Times interviewed them this week. They both shared a passion for hip-hop and jazz, citing inspirations like A Tribe Called Quest, J Dilla, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and Herbie Hancock. Those jazz influences are evident in their live performances.

Can’t You See was written after the death of Gregory’s father, Stephen Paulus, one of the most prolific American composers of the last century, and the tragedy is reflected in the tone of the album. But as a whole, No Regular Play's music tends to carry a unique danceability and should fit perfectly within the funky confines of the Electric Pickle. 

The show is free, but under a few conditions: You must with RSVP via eventbrite.com and arrive before midnight. If you can handle those two things, you'll be enjoying this show for $0. 

No Regular Play. 10 p.m. Saturday, August 13, at the Electric Pickle, 2826 North Miami Ave., Miami; electricpicklemiami.com. Free With RSVP via eventbrite.com.
