So Raw Organizers Are Back With Another Show This Friday, With More Free Beer

Last month's So Raw Festival in Miami was one of the best recent celebrations of the city's burgeoning underground garagey rock and roll thing. (Click here for a slideshow of photos from the event, and here for a review). It was also one of the best deals in town: Admission every night, a paltry $10 or $18 for a weekend pass, came with all the free beer and vodka you can drink.

Well, the trick worked -- the events were packed, and fueled by good vibes, the organizers are back with another show this Friday, again at ISM Gallery in Wynwood. Admission this time around is $5, and that includes, yes, a free beer.

The lineup here features much of the same

cast of characters as the festival. Standouts Melted Sunglasses are

playing again, and another lineup highlight is Beings -- a sort of

supergroup featuring members of old Miami bands like Map of the

Universe, :nobuhjest:, and Cavity.

Danny Denim, usually a guitarist in Melted Sunglasses, is playing his first solo set at this show. And the headliners are out-of-towners Legendary Wings, a power-pop/garage act that hails from Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Friday, July 17. ISM Gallery, 167 NW 23rd St., Miami. Show starts at 9 p.m., admission costs $5. sorawfestival.com
