Space_Miami_14th_Anniversary_Lineup.jpg

In this city of sun, sand, and fast money, the average life expectancy of most megaclubs is, like, a year, two months, and 56 seconds.

So Space Miami reaching its 14th anniversary is about as close to nightlife immortality as it gets in the 305. And quite appropriately, the legendary downtown club and afterhours spot is planning to throw an epic almost-decade-and-a-half bash.

"Yes," the Space folks just tweeted, "the big news you have been waiting for! We are proud to announce ..."

Free_Tickets_James-Murphy_LCD_DFA_Miami_2014.jpg

Is nightclubbing awesome? Or awful?

As former LCD Soundsystem frontman and DFA Records founder James Murphy once quipped: "It depends on your idea of fun. Champagne, music -- it could be a nightmare."

But when Mr. Murphy's handling the disc-jockeying, any trip to the club is just dreamy. Even if the champagne is flat. And especially if your tickets are free.

So ... Who wants some tix for the LCD and DFA mastermind's upcoming DJ set at Bardot Miami?

Just check the cut for contest instructions.

Relive it all with Charlie Pickett.

Like the polar ice caps, the rainforests, and the Yangtze finless porpoise, the record store remains in peril. However, there is hope.

Over the last seven years, Record Store Day has become an increasingly visible global phenomenon, encouraging fans, artists, and proprietors to unite and breathe life into this once-thriving cultural entity.

For 2014, Grand Central will be joining the festivities in an unofficial capacity with Miami Record Store Days: 1975-2000, a live concert, record sale, and photo expo.

So here we go again.

My band, Juke, was asked to play the Wanee Festival for the third year in a row. We made the seven-hour trek to the 580-acre Spirit of Suwannee Music Park, and I was stoked.

This year was to be the Allman Brothers last show. Also on the bill: Chris Robinson, Ziggy Marley, Derek Trucks, tons of music royalty ... And 25,000 people in the middle of nowhere can't be wrong, can they?

Mogwai Talks Rave Tapes, Post-Rock, and Running "Very Much a Democracy"

Mogwai_Band_Interview_Miami_2014.jpg

It took long enough, but Mogwai will finally be playing a gig in Miami. The post-rock band from Glasgow, Scotland, has been around for nearly 20 years, but as its upcoming debut show in our town proves, there are still many firsts for the quintet to experience.

Speaking via phone from his home, guitarist John Cummings also proves that Miami Vice still has an unshakable influence on his perception of the Magic City.

"It's one of the few comfortable associations that I have with your fine city, sadly," he admits, referring to the knee-jerk TV reference. "But that can all change."

Sweatstock 2014: "Old Friends, New Bands, an Awesome Time"

Sweatstock_2014_Interview_Miami_Record-Store-Days.jpg
Sweat out that sugar high with Sunbears.

When the average 21st-century music fan wakes up in the morning, he or she often turns on the smartphone and taps away into the digital life that we all now share, like, 18 hours a day. Free download after free download glides past our eyes as we swipe at touch screens, and enunciate for Siri, plugging in headphones, and turning off the world.

Now, that's all fine and good. But sometimes, an audio junkie needs something to hold, even hug. And of course, we're talking about vinyl, because Record Store Day is nearly here, and it's got us thinking about wax's constantly revolving place in our culture and society. Why is it important? And how can we celebrate it?

Among the answers: Sweatstock.

Nino Brown on Jesus Christ: "He Got a Little Gangsta in Him"

Categories: Local Music, Q&A

Nino-Brown_Rapper_Interview_Miami_2014.jpg

Before Cash Money Records, there were the Cash Money Brothers, a group of fictional New York City drug dealers whose criminal ascension during the '80s crack epidemic was masterminded by their leader, Nino Brown.

The New Jack City character, played by Wesley Snipes, has become an iconic rags-to-riches story in hip-hop culture, much like that of Al Pacino's Tony Montana.

More than 20 years later and over 1,000 miles from New York, DJ Khaled's We the Best have found their own Nino Brown.

Coachella 2014's Worst Moments

worst1phototimothynorris.jpg
Timothy Norris
Coachella's first weekend was amazing this year! Except when it wasn't. Here are the parts of the festival that rubbed us the wrong way.

Saturday Night dust storm
Conditions may not have been as bad as they were during last year's Red Hot Chili Peppers set, but Saturday night's dusty conditions were still pretty awful. The winds started picking up when the sun started going down, and by dusk, the sky had turned a coffee-stain brown and festivalgoers were wiping desert residue from their eyeglasses and exposed skin. Dust gets everywhere -- in the cracks of your smartphone, for starters, and then, later, in your scalp, nose, and bronchial tubes. It's a disgusting affair and a reminder to bring a handkerchief next time. -Adam Lovinus
