I am a groupie for Boise Bob and his Backyard Band, who will be playing tonight at Night of the Weirds at American Legion. Check out this video of me flirting with the washboard player in the parking lot at Churchill's the other night.
This is really the best time of year in the world's most beautiful city: Miami, Florida, Estados Unidos. Miami is no longer a sauna filled with mosquitoes. Take a deep breath, load up your pipe and recharge that battery! Night of the Weirds at American Legion is going to be off the chain. "Call it Hipster Haunted Crack House," said James as we pretended to stand in line at The Vagabond. But seriously...support your local music. Let's meet up at the American Legion tonight, dear friends. It is going to be a hoot.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
