III Points Festival: Five Best Shows
Florida's own XXYYXX is already dreaming about III Points.
Every good music fan is looking forward to III Points, right? How could you not? The chance to rep your town, explore your own streets, get treated to some good food and fun times, and get down to funky rhythms is exactly what we want to do every weekend.
Of course, some of the highest-profile shows are ticketed events, but most of the stuff going down in the day is free and open to the public. There's even a bunch of nonmusic, technology, film and art stuff to go, but we dug through the musically themed activations and picked these great attractions as a guide. If you ever find yourself standing around wondering where to go next, try one of these five for size.
Musical Chairs with the Deep Saturday, October 5, 2-5 p.m., Wood Tavern, 2531 NW Second Ave., Miami; 305-748-2828, woodtavernmiami.com. Admission is free
Um, hello, reliving the best parts of childhood. It was a tough choice between this and the freeze dance with Goodroid, but we figured musical chairs just felt right. Not to mention, music from New York City's the Deep will provide the sexiest soundtrack to the elementary-era favorite you've ever experienced. The chairs themselves will be art pieces, designed by TWINHAUS, and winners from the handful of rounds will get tickets to the Point Blank performance and DFA bbq.
