Miami's Ten Best Live Music Venues
|Is the Fountain of Youth just good tunes and a $6 PBR & Jameson combo?|
In any case, ever since April 2, 1513, Miami has been a hothouse for new musical strains and a must-visit spot for the day's most discerning bands.
Join us on a quest for sonic bliss and immortality as we visit our ten favorite places to catch live music in Miami.
How many times has this happened to you? You're sitting on the couch at home, listening to some new indie band, and you start fantasizing about feeling up that bearded lead singer.
Well, you're in luck. Just move your personal-space-violating tush down to Bardot's stagefront sofas where you'll be sitting well within reaching distance of the best young bands to pass through Miami.
After the concerts, Bardot turns into a bottle service club where go-getters will pay a pretty penny to sit where you've just sat with no one to touch but each other.
9. Adrienne Arsht Center
OK, the tickets can be a little pricey. But you always get your money's worth. The sound is impeccable, every seat's got a great view of the stage, and it's the best room in the city for classical music. Plus, it's fun to get fancy at the Arsht with a loved one and finally find out what goes on in that weirdly shaped building.
Cynics will say it is not a coincidence that the building looks like a rumpled pile of underwear tossed into a corner. But music fans know that passionate performance spaces simply beget passionate performances. The Roots, great Broadway musicals, and not one but two nights of Yanni? If that doesn't put your date in the mood, there's always a free, unending ride on the adjacent MetroMover awaiting you.
