Amateur scientists have told us that if you go too long without eating, your brain will start feeding on itself. That's kind of how Miami is when it's not tourist season. For local musicians it can mean ritual cannibal death.
Miami thrives as a playground for the rich, famous, and tourists, which is why all this NFL bullshit is fucking awesome and will end up benefiting the local music scene. So if you're sitting home now, smoked out, lazy, bored, morose, go outside, take a guitar with you, and put it to work. There's way too much money flying through Dade right now for you to not be trying to get some of it.
Watch our music video on the subject for more info. It's our soundtrack to Night Of The Living Dead, a public domain movie.
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.
