When Brooklyn's TV on the Radio revealed plans to surf all the way to South Beach upon Nine Types of Light, we warned all you weak-eyed, sensitive-eared indie kids about arriving unprepared.
Next Tuesday's TVOTR blast at the Fillmore Miami Beach will be blindingly brilliant. So if you haven't picked up the required personal protection equipment -- UV-shield sunglasses ($44.99) and silicone earplugs ($5.76), available through amazon.com -- it's time to caffeinate your consciousness and start an Internet shopping spree.
