Ten Alternative Spaces for Live Music in South Florida
4. Topeekeegee Yugnee Park
Switching gears here for a moment, Topeekeegee Yugnee Park, otherwise known simply as TY Park, is a beautiful oak tree shaded spot in Hollywood.
Past its gates, there's a lake, camping area, and all that you could expect from a park, but with something especially beautiful about it. Perhaps it's the trees that make it such a breezy and nice place, but one way or another, it's a great location for gathering. So why not for music? Churchill's and the Talent Farm were not just home to some of our favorite punk bands, they were home to every type of musician walked through their doors. Why not do the same type of diverse partying outdoors with burgers on the grill and the sun peaking through the trees?
3. Ñooo!!! Que Barato!
For some reason, there's something really appealing about the idea of throwing a wild show in a flea market. Just visualizing the chaos of the place and its patrons in a way mirrors the frenzied mood of a hardcore crowd about to go off the rails, so why not bring the two together?!
Well, for obvious reasons, of course. But we can dream, right? Stranger things have happened. Ñooo!!! Que Barato! in Hialeah is one of South Florida's most unique landmarks. Translating roughly to "Dammmnn! How cheap!!" this spot is overflowing with little old Cuban ladies. But guess what? Some of their daughters and sons want to hear some crazy live music, so why not bring it straight to their doorstep?
