We know you love New Times' Best Of Miami
issue. We know you pine for it each and every year. And that's why we work so hard to bring you the very best Miami has to offer in one spectacular issue, so that your months of gazing longingly at saved past issues doesn't go unrewarded.
In your quite contemplation of your feelings for Best Of Miami, we bet you have, at one time or another, stopped and thought, "What if I could sample a whole cross-section of these Best-of musical picks, all in one place?" (Or not?) Well, either way, now you can. And all you have to do is head to Churchill's
, tomorrow night.
That's right, a whole evening chock full of Best Of Miami winners all in one place, in real life, not just our pages. We're calling it the Best of Miami Music Showcase, and the lineup is gonna blow your friggin' mind, with 10 different current and past winners sharing one stage.
, who won Best Solo Album last year for Tinker Toys,
will be in the house. As will Raffa and Rainer
, our choice this year for Best Acoustic Performers. Conjunto Progreso's
definitely gonna be there, providing some Best Latin Band jams. Best Solo Musician Teepee
, Best Songwriter Boxwood
, Best Latin Alternative Band Kayakman
, Best Collaborator Kentsoundz, Best Local Rock Band MadMartigan
(who could've also won for Best Willow
Reference in a Name, but just barely missed it), Best Band Metamorphosis winners Animal Tropical
and Best Caribbean Band Dangerflow
will all also definitely be in the hiz.
And you should be too. Because on top of all that, we're raffling a Gibson Guitar signed by The All-American Rejects
. Oh! And how could I forget? The good people at Grolsch and Absolut have been kind enough to sponsor, which means OPEN BAR from 9 to 11 p.m.!!!
If you're over 21, you get in free. Being too young to legally imbibe will result in a fine of $10 to enter, and of course, as the Booze Nazi always says, "NO BOOZE FOR YOU!"
