Win Free Tickets for Head and the Heart at Fillmore Miami Beach

Photo by Curtis Wave Millard

Only five years ago, the Head and the Heart were playing the Seattle pub circuit.

But within 12 months, founders Josiah Johnson, Jonathan Russell, and mates found themselves signed to legendary indie-rock label Sub Pop while being buzzed over by critics declaring H&H to be the Emerald City's next big band.

Soon, the indie-folk sextet's self-titled 2011 debut had successfully stirred the sensitive types and beardos. And now, following the release of 2013's Let's Be Still, Johnson, Russell, and gang are truly living up to their popular promise, notching the 10 spot on the Billboard 200 and criss-crossing these glorious United States of America on tour.

Be stirred when the Head and the Heart's show strum into the Fillmore Miami Beach. Just check the cut for free tickets.

Win Free Tickets for Roky Erickson and Black Angels at Grand Central Miami


Walking with zombies. And surviving the night of the vampire.

As a pioneer of tripped-out rock 'n' roll and the frontman of quintessential 1960s psychedelic rock band 13th Floor Elevators, Roky Erickson -- who emerged out of the wildness and weirdness of Austin, Texas -- notched his spot among American pop music's most visionary outlaws.

His earliest singles, such as 1966's "You're Gonna Miss Me," changed rock and cracked the Billboard charts. But by the late '60s, Erickson had been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, confined to a mental hospital, and subjected to electroshock therapy.

Four decades later, though, he's experienced an all-out resurgence, releasing a string of critically revered records, playing major music festivals like Coachella, and making regular cross-country treks alongside younger acolytes.

Now in mere days, Roky Erickson and fellow Austin psychedelicists Black Angels will unleash mind-warping rock upon downtown Miami's Grand Central. It's gonna be an experience to expand the mind.

So check the cut. Win some tickets. Don't miss it.

As Toro y Moi, AKA one-man electro-pop wonder Chad Bundick, points out: "You're working double just to have a life."

Those lyrics from "Come Alive," his new collabo track with Chromeo, are proof that the self-described indie soulster truly understands existence as a cultured individual in a Great Recession world.

And if you need even more evidence that he sympathizes with being broke, working too hard, and partying too little ... Toro y Moi (along with Grand Central, Poplife, and Crossfade) is giving away free tix to his sold-out February 18 show in Miami.
