Five Best Concerts in Miami This Week
Via Facebook.com/janellemonae Go "Primetime" with the Electric Lady "Q.U.E.E.N." Janelle Monáe.
With mindless drivers who must've bribed the DMV to get a Class E license, con artists who make a living by stealing children's Social Security numbers, and comedians who run for public office, Miami is far, far, far from utopia.
But the music's pretty good. And in many ways, the Magic City is even the party people's paradise, luring blues legends, rock supergroups, Latin funk stars, future soul divas, and big ballers to our sandy shores on a weekly basis.
Go ahead, see for yourself. Here are the five best gigs to check out in Miami.

Buddy Guy. With Johnny Lang. Presented by Live at Knight. Thursday, November 21, 8 p.m., Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, 1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 305-949-6722; arshtcenter.org. Tickets cost $39 to $99 plus fees via arshtcenter.org. All ages. Buddy Guy's had the blues "from [his] head down to [his] shoes" ever since he laid his hands on a six-string for the first time. Little did he know that his Stone Crazy ways would make him one of Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" and a key influence in the musical careers of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and other axe champs. Long live the Blues Master.
