If cult movie messiah Alejandro Jodorowsky and PFFR co-produced a mass psychosis session in the secret subterranean tunnels that link Vizcaya Gardens to the Domino's at NE 2nd Ave. and 34th, then Miami-bred psychedelicists Ice Cream would be named official jam band.
As the authors of artfully shitty recordings like "W.H.O.R.E.S.," "Meadow Where the Sun Was Born," and today's free track "Little Children," these inner-city Floridian freaks bang out a certain kind of joyfully creepy tuneage they describe as "religious/glam/religious." It's the kind of noise -- a mesmerizing musical murk that's equal parts sing-along kid's songs, bad trip soundtracks, and proggy noise freakouts -- perfectly suited to full-blown festivals of weirdness.
So, this Saturday, join the daisy chain of skinhead saints and long-haired sinners as it stumbles and weaves through the streets of Little Haiti and into Sweat Records' tiny concert cave. You'll meet Ice Cream, local freak-folks Arboles Libres
, and horticulture enthusiasts Flower Flower Yes
. Plus, there's even an outside chance that Jodorowsky and PFFR will show up on skateboards handing out free early-bird tickets to their underground pizza party.
Saturday, November 21. Sweat Records, 5505 NE 2nd Ave., Miami. Show starts at 8 p.m., and the event is free. 305-342-0953; sweatrecordsmiami.com
