Photos: N.E.R.D's Performances at W South Beach, Awarehouse

It wasn't too long ago that N.E.R.D performed like at the somewhat dysfunctional Future Classic Festival. But that didn't stop them from giving Miami a weekend full of alt hip-hop (arguably N.E.R.D are the original hipster-hoppers).

But this past weekend's performances, both at the W South Beach and Kia Soul Collective event at Awarehouse, feature a special surprise -- the introduction of a fourth new member to the group, Rhea. Last time an eccentric hip-hop group took in a fourth female member, we ended up with Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas, and, well, they've given us such vomit-inducing hits like "My Humps" and "Boom Boom Pow." Rhea also reminds us looks-wise of a poor man's version of M.I.A.

Anyway, if you weren't there (we weren't), Pharrell and Co. were gracious enough to post images from both their performances via their Billionaire Boys Club blog. Check out the photos of the W South Beach and Awarehouse.

Also, there Herald's music blog (see we can show some love to our local daily) has a nifty review and set list from the Awarehouse show.
