The motto is "Nothin' but the goods." And like some punch-drunk baby boxer beating a gong with bare bloody fists, the seven-week-old Champion Sound
throwdown brings the noise in a big way. For proof of pure party acumen, just take a quick and dirty MySpace tour with a few members of the rapidly ballooning CS musical alumni, including hip-hop jam band Fusik
, hometown funk hero DJ Le Spam
, and local street trio Basic Vocab
Now, edging toward its eighth edition, this Champ baby is growing bigger, better, and bolder. Next Wednesday July 8, pianist/vocalist/MPC
(AKA Jeremy Ellis) flies down from the 313 (Detroit, motherfucker) to the 305 for his induction into the CS Hall of Noise and Punch-Drunkeness. Showing up in support will be DJs Santiago and Maneuvers, plus party residents Mr. Brown, Sire Esq.
, and A-Train
. To get drunk yourself, there's $5 beer all night and free well drinks for the females from 10-11:30. So yeah, go help that little big guy bang the gong.
Wednesday, July 8. Electric Pickle, 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Show starts at 10 p.m., and admission is $5. 305-456-5613; Facebook.com/ChampionSound
