It may only be Tuesday. But hey, it's never too early to party.
Especially when we're talking South Beach, a magical hot spot near the ocean where on any given night of the week, you'll find talented musicians throwing bashes because, why not?
Check out the six best SoBe parties going down this week.
Ne-Yo. With music by DJ Sub Zero. Tuesday, June 4, 11 p.m., at Bamboo, 550 Washington Ave., Miami Beach; 305-695-4771; bamboomiamibeach.com. Tickets cost $20-$30 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. Alright, so Ne-Yo won't exactly be serenading sweet nothings all night, but we're pretty sure he'll "Play Hard" as host for the evening while DJ Sub Zero does his thang.
Kaskade. With DJ Mednas. Thursday, June 6, 11 p.m., at LIV, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-674-4680; livnightclub.com. Tickets cost $125-$200 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. If you look into his "Eyes" long enough, chances are Kaskade will have you under his smooth, magical uhntz-uhntz spell.
Eric Prydz. Friday, June 7, 11 p.m., at Story, 136 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-538-2424; storymiami.com. Tickets cost $40-$125 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. Eric Prydz is the mystery man of EDM -- he goes by a lot of names, like Pryda, Cirez D., Dukes of Sluca... but if there is one thing we can be sure of, is that we can "Call On [Him]" for fist-pumping hits.
Knife Party. Friday, June 7, 11 p.m., at Mansion, 1235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach; 305-695-8411; mansionmiami.com. Tickets cost $50 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. If you ever add these guys on Facebook, you better be sure you really want to befriend them, because if you ever block them, "you're going to die."
Sasha. Saturday, June 8, 11 p.m., at Story, 136 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-538-2424; storymiami.com. Tickets cost $30-$40 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. It's hard to classify Sasha's music: house, trance, breaks. Whatever genre his music may fall under, Sasha creates dance-worthy masterpieces that make even the most rhythmless person bust a move.
Ice Cube. Sunday, June 9, 11 p.m., at LIV, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-674-4680; livnightclub.com. Tickets range from $40-$150 and are available at the door. Ages 21 and up. We all do crazy shit and many times, alcohol, peer-pressure, or pride get the blame, but not many have used the "Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It" excuse, unless, of course, you're Ice Cube.
