Fifteen Best Concerts During Art Basel Miami Beach 2012
Merchandise. Presented by Ad Hoc, Self-Titled Magazine, and Spilt Milk Projects and sponsored by Sailor Jerry Rum and Grolsch. With Teepee, Lil Daggers, and Band in Heaven. Friday, December 7, 9 p.m., Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE Second Ave., Miami; 305-757-1807; churchillspub.com. Cover is $5, with complimentary drinks after 10 p.m. Ages 21 and up. If the anthemically fuzzy tuneage of critically beloved Tampa synth-rock band Merchandise isn't enough to lure you to Miami's best rock club during Basel week, there's also gonna be a trio of killer SoFla crews, free booze, and no cover charge. Are you satisfied now? Holy shit.
