Miami has been so hot lately that the AC wall unit in my Edgewater studio is fighting a losing battle. I'm actually hoping we get some rain soon because I'm not sure how much longer I can stand the heat. So while I sit directly in front of the vents, here is what you missed over the weekend:
Maxwell at American Airlines Arena
Maxwell stopped by the American Airlines Arena Friday night to swoon the ladies. The R&B singer topped the Billboard charts last month with his latest release, BLACKsummers'night. Click here to view the full slide show.
Red Bull Manny Mania at Ice Palace Studios
Local amateur skateboarders came out for the Red Bull Manny Mania at Ice Palace Studios Saturday. In order to make things more challenging, skaters had to do all of their tricks while riding only on two wheels. Click here to view the full slide show.
Black Moth Super Rainbow at White Room
Mixing psychedelia and electronic sounds, Black Moth Super Rainbow performed at White Room Saturday. The night also marked Poplife's final run at the edge-of-Overtown venue. Click here to read the review, and click here to view the full slide show.
