Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Last week was, of course, utter art, music, and media ridiculousness -- so of course, it's captured all over the social web. Missed out on a show? Don't feel bad, practically all of the week's musical events are on YouTube! Reading reviews of both OK Go's electrified performance at Design Miami /, and of Gang Gang Dance's sweaty rave-up at the Max Fish pop-up bar, are one thing. Seeing them is another.

Here's a clip of one of those OK Go shows, this one of their old hit "Get Over It," from YouTube user xdestructable.

And here's a clip in HD of Gang Gang Dance at the Fish, from user OpeningCeremonyNY. I'm going to take a wild guess and say that's run by somebody from the downtown Manhattan gallery/boutique of the same name.

Another excellent HD video comes from user ZManBarzel, whose videos we've shared in this column before. He captured Ebony Bones' otherworldly performance at the free Art Loves Music concert -- and if he wasn't right up against the stage, he has the best zoom function ever.


Everybody wanted to get into that Lance Armstrong/STAGES opening reception because it featured a set by the Atlas Sound. Alas for the regular plebs, it was super invite-only. Here's one song that ended up on YouTube courtesy of JuxtapozMagazine.


If you left the Giant Step/Kid Sister party at the Delano early because the booze ran out, looks like you missed out on a killer performance. Here's Kid Sister performing her song "Control" there, from YouTube user kida105.

And if you gave up on the ridiculously long lines outside the Converse-sponsored Kinky/Mala Rodriguez show, here's some HD video of Kinky, from YouTube user barronsherer.

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.
