Well, with just 31 hours, 29 minutes, and 55 seconds till it's time for you and 150,000 other furry-booted beat freaks to crash the gates at Ultra Music Festival, you will soon be overdosing on the uhntz-uhntz.
In the meantime, though, there's no reason to stay at home, napping, chilling, and fanatically hydrating for this weekend's three-day rave on the Bay.
Nah, let's fucking party. Here are today's top Winter Music Conference and Miami Music Week throwdowns.
Circo Loco. With Seth Troxler, Matthias Tanzmann, David Squillace, Ellen Allien, Clive Henry, and others. 11 a.m., Surfcomber Hotel, 1717 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-532-7715; surfcomber.com. Ages 21 and up. Yes, Circo Loco's official mascot is a crazy, afro-rocking, tongue-wagging, googly-eyed clown. But believe us, facepaint at a pool party is straight stupid. After only a half-hour of swimming, sweating, and uhntz-uhntz-ing, the makeup will melt, bleed into your eyes, and you'll end up functionally blind. So just stick to a swimsuit, snorkel, and glowsticks.
Skrillex's OWLSA Miami. With Zedd, Kill the Noise, Dillon Francis, Koan, Alvin Risk, and others. Thursday, March 22, noon, Raleigh Hotel, 1775 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-534-6300; raleighhotel.com. For VIP passes, email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Ages 21 and up. Slip into some Skrillex-approved poolside attire (skinny jeans, dirty t-shirt, black nailpolish) and dubstep down to the Raleigh's pool for a party with the ex-screamo kid and his OWLSA label crew.
