Over the Weekend: Phish, Lady Gaga, and Simian Mobile Disco

Vacation is over, South Florida. After two weeks of back-to-back long weekends, we are finally returning to our same ol' routine for a while at least. In case you were elsewhere visiting ungrateful relatives, here is what you missed over the weekend:

Phish at American Airlines Arena

The Vermont jam band invaded Miami for four days, taking up residency at the American Airlines Arena in downtown Miami. Click here to view the full slide show.

Lady Gaga New Year's Eve Party at the Fontainebleau Hotel

We were a bit annoyed we weren't allowed to photograph Lady Gaga's performance at the Fontainebleau on New Year's Eve. Especially since everyone and their mother probably snapped photos of her performance. Click here to view the full slide show -- sans Gaga.

New Year's Eve with Simian Mobile Disco at the Shore Club

Wale and Daniel Merriweather performed at the Shore Club, helping partygoers ring in the new year. But the highlight was definitely the DJ set by James Ford, of Simian Mobile Disco. Click here to view the full slide show.

New Year's Eve at Il Bacio

Delray Beach's Il Bacio celebrated the new year with a Mardi Gras-themed party. Click here to view the full slide show.
