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


With her much-anticipated solo album, I Love You, out since August, the sassy rapper/singer Amanda Blank is repping Philly hard during Art Basel Miami Beach. Well, at least on Wednesday, when she'll be performing live twice in one night. The biggest booking coup? An opening slot for Ebony Bones at the free Art Loves Music official fair kick-off party, where she's got the most opportunity to win over new fans. (Not familiar with Ebony Bones? See our earlier post about her here.) Later on that night, Blank will mostly be preaching to the converted at Dirty Hairy at LIV, where a DJ set by the Misshapes guarantees a crowd so hip it hurts. 

Here's the video for I Love You's lead single, "Might Like You Better." (Random post-punk influence factoid: That line "I might like you better if we slept together" is also the refrain of Romeo Void's awesome 1982 jam "Never Say Never."

Amanda Blank, with Ebony Bones at the Art Loves Music kickoff party for Art Basel Miami Beach. Wednesday, December 2. Oceanfront at Collins Park, between 21st and 22nd Streets. Show starts at 10 p.m., admission is free. 305-674-1292; artbaselmiamibeach.com

With the Misshapes. Wednesday, December 2. LIV, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. Ages 21+ with ID. epoplife.com
