The circus is coming to town...the town of Hialeah, that is. At least that's what the press release accompanying my invitation to Radioboxer's presentation of their debut album Radio Drama says. Judging by the effort they put into these nifty venereal vids (why do people keep calling them that?) we posted a couple weeks back, and the resulting quality, that seems like a promise the locally-bred rock group will make good on.
The concept behind this particular show is a unique one, playing upon the recurring circus theme embarked upon at the album's onset with the kitschy "Run Away From Home and Join the Travelling Band". The atmosphere in the Annex will combine a 1940's carnival setting with some very distinctly Miamian art fixtures, including exhibits and listening stations where you can check out tunes from some local favs, like Huma Rojo, Afrobeta and Minimal.
Did we mention there will be "special carnies" on hand? Oh, and if you
needed further enticing, your Reader's Choice for 2009 Best Band will
be performing live, naturally. So join the travelling band yourself, in
the City of Progress this Saturday for a local show that promises to be
well outside the norm.
Radioboxer will be performing at the
Annex (9911NW 80 Ave, Hialeah, FL, 33016) on Saturday, August 15. Show
begins at 9 p.m. Admission is free, but you need to RSVP either by
e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by visiting
