Ten Best Music-Related Things to Do in Miami This Weekend Under $10
We told you yesterday about PepsiCo's decision to partner up with the estate of Michael Jackson for a "global marketing push."
Like a homeless man recycling aluminum cans for a ten-cent refund, the carbonated conglomerate that nearly killed Jacko in 1984 is milking the King of Pop's lifeless corpse for every last dollar.
Quite frankly, the thought of MJ's image on the side of our soft drink is unsettling. But at least there's plenty of music-related things to do this weekend to forget about it.

LabRats Eat Rammy Cakes and Cumon Christ. Friday, May 4, 8 p.m., Sweat Records, 5505 NE Second Ave., Miami. $3. Gas is expensive. And so is touring. Help these dudes recoup some of that road money.
