Around Town: Mini Lady Gaga, Brit Rock, French Pop, and Calle Ocho

Miami offers an array of options this weekend: the last indie flicks of the film festival, miniature pop stars, open-air art walks, and America's largest street party. Winter Music Conference begins March 23, so shine your dancing shoes and save your pennies.


  • UK rockers the Wave Pictures play the Vagabond. And according to our writer, their sound is all pining and heartbreak -- in a good way.
  • Lady Gaga pulled in crowds for not one, but two Miami New Year's Eve bashes. If you're still miffed about missing those shows, check out Mini Lady Gaga at Mansion. She used to impersonate Britney Spears, but the little lady now performs as Gaga.

  • Cue the Moog -- France's Air

    will play the Fillmore this Saturday. The duo's recent album hasn't won

    over critics, so here's hoping the pair brings some of that Talkie Walkie goodness.


  • The largest street party in America happens this weekend in our very own Little Havana -- Calle Ocho! This year, Pitbull is the main draw, but

    check our rundown of who else will play.

  • Rest your weary bones after a day on SW Eighth Street at a screening of the Oscar-nominated The Milk of Sorrow, the last feature of the film festival. Watch the trailer below.
