Win Free Passes for III Points Festival

A III Points polygon sighting in the streets of Miami.

Behold the triangle.

A potent (and sometimes mystical) symbol, this simple geometrical shape is often used to represent such eternal trinities as past, present, future. (Or, say, music, art, technology.) And occultists even scratch it into the earth to summon spirits.

But if you've recently spotted an equilateral, three-sided polygon painted on a Miami sidewalk ... Then you might have scored tix for Wynwood's second annual III Points Festival.

Now, though, there's an easier way to win free passes than a Dade-County triangle chase. Just check the cut to enter III Points and Crossfade's contest.

Win Free Tickets for Tori Amos at Fillmore Miami Beach


Why do wayward women have to be penitent?

That was the thought tearing through Tori Amos' mind as she gazed upon an etching entitled "Geraldine" by the Irish artist Daniel Maclise. "It got me thinking about not apologizing," the fiery (and fiery maned) singer-songwriter recalls.

Hence, Unrepentant Geraldines, her defiant and brash new album, which draws inspiration from fine art, Americana, and her own '90s-era alternative chamber-pop.

Check the cut for a chance to win free tickets for Tori Amos and the Unrepentant Geraldines tour at the Fillmore Miami Beach this weekend.

Win Free Tickets for Jason Derulo at Fillmore Miami Beach

Dude's a filthy freak.

However, after building a rep for bump-n-grind, smash-n-dash sex anthems (and then suffering a nearly career-ending spinal injury), Jason Derulo says he's determined to become a more mature artist.

Sure, the Miami native's new album is entitled Talk Dirty. And yeah, the biggest hit is a song by the same name that declares "her pussy's so good I bought her a pet." But even the most mature men dream about "international oral sex," right?

Win Free Tickets for Primus & The Chocolate Factory at Fillmore Miami Beach


Could Primus & The Chocolate Factory be to Willy Wonka as Dark Side of the Moon is to The Wizard of Oz?

Well, Les Claypool hopes so. The Primus frontman admits he "always wanted to be Wonka." And now he's come as close as possible by reuniting with his original bandmates, guitarist Larry Lalonde and drummer Tim "Herb" Alexander, for a tribute to the trippy children's classic and its music.

But "as opposed to just going in and recording the songs and playing them the way they are in the film, we twisted them up a bit," Claypool says. "Twisted them up a lot."

And what to expect from Primus & The Chocolate Factory in concert? Some Primus classics. Primus candy bars. And the full Primus-on-Wonka songbook.

Win Free Tickets for David Gray at Fillmore Miami Beach


"Back in the world again."

After nearly a half-decade, England's David Gray is finally taking another trip around America. His newly announced U.S. tour begins in Boston before eventually striding south for a September 30 stop at the Fillmore Miami Beach.

As the British singer-songwriter muses on the latest single off his new album, Mutineers, he's "got a whole different person/inside my head." And there's "no more trudging around/stony eyed through the town/like the living dead."

Which is exactly how you'll feel when you win free tix for Mr. Gray's Mutineers tour in Miami. Just check the cut for contest instructions.

Brood. Swoon. Now dance.

But now Banks, Fogarino, and Kessler have returned with a new album, El Pintor, that's being hailed as their most impressive since 2004's Antics. And they're touring the world, including the Fillmore Miami Beach.
