Unfortunately, the rabidly anticipated Ultra week edition of Swedish House Mafia's Masquerade Motel is still 59 days away. So all you overeager party people need to just chill and figure out a positive way to spend those megawatts of pent-up energy.
Sure, you could set the Stockholm trio's certified crossover hit "Miami 2 Ibiza" on repeat and fist pump yourself into a state of deliriously sweaty exhaustion. But here's another less manic option: Go get your monthly Swedish House Mafia fix this Friday when junior member Sebastian Ingrosso brings his champagne-spraying, crowd-slaying antics to LIV.
As evidenced by Ingrosso and his cohorts' recent tour documentary Take One, DJs are the new freaking rockstars. They wear fancy scarves and mirrored shades. They own private jets. They play concerts for 500,000 fans. Of course, you can't fit a half-million people into the Fontainebleau. But still, it wouldn't be insane expect epic levels of excess and celebrity cameos from local friends of the Mafia like Diddy.
In any case, you'll know it's been awesome when Ingrosso whips out his trademark, set-capping catchphrase: "I think I fucked this party in the pussy."
Sebastian Ingrosso. Friday, February 4. LIV, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. The party starts at 11 p.m. and tickets cost $75 via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. Call 305-674-4680 or visit livnightclub.com.
