Top Winter Music Conference and Miami Music Week Parties for Tuesday, March 20
|Do the walk of shame with Steve Aoki|
Today marks the official start of Miami Music Week (AKA Ultra Week), so that means big parties from here on out. Still, if you are looking for something a bit more underground, head for Downtown Miami venues like The Vagabond, Mamushka's, Villa 221, Electric Pickle, Bardot, and Grand Central. These party spots will offer safe haven from the South Beach spring break chaos. Although, to count out the Beach completely would be a mistake, especially for daytime events.
Anyway, let's turn up the bass, because here is what you are going to want to check out today.
Future Classics. With Paul Oakenfold, Nadia Ali, Ultra Naté, Tony Humphries, Studio Apartment, and more. National Hotel, 1677 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach. Doors at noon. Tickets $45. Visit oakenfoldtickets.com. Oakenfold brings his Planet Perfecto mantra to the National pool while you get drunk in your swimsuit. It's a win-win if you ask us.
Gotta Dance Dirty WMC Showcase. With Maxxi Soundsystem, Cassian, Finger Prince, Plastic Plates, Mickey, and more. Bardot, 3456 N Miami Avenue, Miami. Doors at 9 p.m. Tickets $10 at eventbrite.com. Forget the mega-clubs, and slide into the cozy environs at Bardot where tonight music blog Gotta Dance Dirty hosts its music showcase with Maxxi Soundsystem and Cassian. Hipster hookup potential is high.
