Categories: Arts

Friday, Dec. 7 

Addition 1: Lil Daggers, Merchandise, Band in Heaven, Teepee
Free beer? Free Sailor Jerry's? Churchill's? Yes, please. From Tampa, Lake Worth, and Miami, these four bands warrant a drop-in for sure.

Lil Daggers, Merchandise, Band in Heaven, Teepee. 7 p.m., Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE Second Ave., Miami. $5 entrance.

Addition 2: Peach Fuzz
Always the best party in Miami. Hip-hop at the Garret, this time with Fool's Gold. Don't miss it. 

The Garret, 697 North Miami Ave., Miami. 

This is the Jellyfish brother's second annual AB distraction. They're showcasing some of the most exciting (corny word alert!) young Miami and Broward acts, including the Cost, Las Tias, the Gun Hoes, Whoorish Boorish, Dyslexic Postcards, and classics like the king of noise Rat Bastard and the grimiest noisemaker of all Kenny Millions. Give your local artists some loving this Basel. 

Also, don't miss out on the Miami World Internet Cafe set up at this spot by the brilliant Domingo Castillo of Spring Break/the end. It's certain to be bizarre in all the right ways. 

Jellyfish Brothers Headquarters near 20th Street and NW 1st Ave., Wynwood. 9 p.m. on Dec. 7 and 7 p.m. on Dec. 8. Free. 

8. Daniel Johnston
If you think we'd miss Daniel Johnston performing at Grand Central, you'd be a crazy person, you know, like the man himself. Maybe Miami can learn something about staying weird from one of the most fascinating characters in modern music.

Hi, How Are You? With Daniel Johnston. 9 p.m. Grand Central, 697 N Miami Ave., Miami. Tickets cost $20 plus fees via Call 305-377-2277 or visit

7. Solange Knowles, Jacques Renault, Neon Indian, etc.
So, this ain't really my thing, but it's a thing we think you should attend if it's your thing. Get it?
