On the List - Tepr, Lee Burridge, Benny Benassi, and I Love Techno
We apologize for not bringing you your weekly dose of On the List last week, but we've got life to you know. But we're back, so you can get your panties out of a twist and relish in the fact that you won't be clueless as to what is going on this weekend.
Is there plenty to do? Yes. Is most of it worth mentioning? Hell nah! Here is what what passed our crap-tacular meter:
Ze French are so cool. So while everyone will be checking out Common and N.E.R.D. at the Fillmore Friday night (FAIL!), we'll be over at the Polish American Club bastardizing the French language as we attempt to sing along to Yelle, the electro-pop chanteuse who has us hypnotized.
Nevertheless, it ain't so much the Yelle concert that has us buzzing as much as is fellow bandmember Tepr's set at Heathrow Lounge (681 Washington Ave., Miami) afterward. The Frenchman will be bring his native country's tecktonik sound to South Beach. It should be quite a treat.
Saturday, Back Door Bamby snatches another great booking again by bringing Lee Burridge to The Vagabond (30 NE 14th St., Miami). The British beatmaker is no stranger to the Magic City, having played countless times during Winter Music Conference, but still making plenty of non-Conference appearances, including one last year at the now-defunct Studio A.
You be able to get satisfaction knowing Benny Benassi will be stopping at Mansion (1235 Washington Ave., Miami). The Milan native is currently touring in support of his latest album Rock 'n' Rave, which features his current single "I'm Not Drunk," which is what we told that officer last weekend who pulled us over because we were "swerving."
Gasp! Apparently, Space loves techno, because they are hosting I Love Techno Sunday morning with Patrick M along side -- you won't believe it -- Louis Puig himself. The party starts at 4 a.m. and goes on until your liver gives out.
