In this week's issue, we previewed Rachel Goodrich's appearance with Awesome New Republic at the Awarehouse on Saturday. Unfortunately -- or fortunately, depending on what way you look at it -- American Apparel will be hosting a rummage sale all weekend long at the Wynwood venue so the show has been moved to the Vagabond (30 NE 14th Street, Miami) Saturday night for its Back Door Bamby party. It's a bit unusual for the place to be hosting live music that night considering the party focuses on house music, but we definitely appreciate that it made some room for the displaced show.
Also on the bill that night is the usual serving of house music courtesy of DJ Lauren Flax along with the party's slew of resident DJs. Need more convincing? There is free Belvedere open bar from 10 to 11 p.m.
