Miami's Ten Best Labor Day 2013 Parties
Do up your day off with DJ Craze.
We all spend our days slaving away, flipping burgers, serving slop, pouring drinks, hauling trash, driving big rigs, selling cars, cuffing creeps, dancing on poles, counting other people's cash, or tapping data into crappy old desktop computers.
But our nights (and paychecks) are gloriously wasted on cab rides, vodka shots, and the kind of fun we won't remember in the morning.
Enjoy the long weekend, workers. Here are the ten best Labor Day 2013 parties in Miami.
Calvin Harris. With Mednas. Thursday, August 29, 11 p.m., LIV, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-674-4680; livnightclub.com. Tickets cost $75 to $125 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. Even the world's richest DJs once worked shitty day jobs. A decade ago, Calvin Harris was broke and stank like uncooked seafood because he was stuck toiling in a fish market for eight hours a day. But now the EDM wonderboy pulls three-hour shifts, banks $46 million a year, and wakes up smelling like crisp, clean cotton-paper cash.
Stacey Pullen and Jesse Rose. With Thunderpony. Friday, August 30, 11 p.m., Treehouse, 323 23rd St., Miami Beach; 305-614-4478; treehousemiami.com. Tickets cost $10 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. Hell yeah, a night at the club can be considered hard labor. As Detroit techno legend Stacey Pullen once explained: "The heat! The strobe! The sweat!"
