Who loves free vodka and British accents? Say "I" 'cause you're in for a treat with Smirnoff's "Nightlife Exchange Project" -- a one-night affair involving 14 different countries who signed up for an "experiment in global nightlife culture." The idea: showcase the best music, food, fashion, drinks, and party like an international rock star.
To highlight the best of the Brits, we have superstar DJ and producer Seamus Haji of Big Love Music. Best known for his 2004 remix of "Last Night a DJ Saved My Life," Seamus is the remix master, having done some serious dance floor facelifts for artists like Rihanna, Mariah Carey, the Tings Tings, and Moby. Other DJs will include Miami's own DJ Irie, Chicago's own Andre Harris and Philadelphia's native son King Britt.
Yeah ... Not very UK if you ask us. But then again, King Britt's name does sound, um, British? Well, despite the hodge-podge, it's sure to be a mega-bash. Oh, and did we mention the open bar? Nevermind the bollocks, here comes the hangover!
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.
