Concerts

Raffa and Rainer Play Shiso on Sunday, May 17

What better way to spend a sweet sweet Sunday afternoon

Mother's Day than with a concert by the super super sweet Raffa and

Rainer over at the tiny little joint, Shiso, around the corner from

ye old dirty Purdy Lounge and down the street from Publix International Airport. The food is excellent, the vibes are good,

and the drinks have catchy little names. The acts play in the front

next to the door, so you can't sneak out past wackness. Thank god the

little folk duo plays awesome music in a super heartfelt manner that

charms even this jaded writer, who, by the way, so often loves to drink of the

Haterade. Get past your musical hangups and spend a corporate

hallmark holiday with them this Sunday, May 17.  Apparently there was some kind of Miami Beach-wide ban on good vibes and better music and Shiso didn't have teh correct permit in place to engage in those wonderful things.  Now they have it str8, str8, str8 - so if you thought you missed it last week, you didn't.
