Shred till the End Times with '90s rock revolutionaries Marilyn Manson and the Smashing Pumpkins at Bayfront Park. Marilyn Manson got his start in South Florida with his band Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids. We wonder if he's missed us?

Questlove is no stranger to Miami. Its long been one of his favorite places to escape winter, and on Anthony's Bourdain's latest trip to Miami, he broke bread with Questlove at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar. And on Saturday you too can funk it up and get loose with Quest. Party till daybreak as the badass wax spinner and Roots drummer brings his fresh tunes to the Basement.
