"Oh, hey, I wasn't listening ..."

Win Free Tickets for Capital Cities at Grand Central Miami

Capital Cities' Sebu Simonian and Ryan Merchant.

"In some ways, yes. In some ways, no."

That's how Capital Cities' Ryan Merchant feels about his and bandmate Sebu Simonian's so-called "overnight success."

As he pointed out to Crossfade a few months ago, the duo's biggest hit, "'Safe and Sound' was put out in 2011, so it actually feels like kind of long, steady growth of the song." They paid dues, writing commercial jingles and struggling for a shot. And it all paid off, "when," as Merchant says, "the song crossed over to Top 40 and became a global hit."

Over the past year, Capital Cities has toured the world's arenas with Katy Perry. But now the twosome is returning to downtown Miami's Grand Central for a more intimate affair.

Just check the cut for a chance to win free tix.

Win Free Tickets for Banks' Goddess Tour at Grand Central Miami


"Just living, taking in your experiences. That's how you grow, especially as an artist."

Almost exactly a year ago, before her Miami debut, Banks told Crossfade all about her journey from "writing in my room" to touring with the Weeknd.

And now the 26-year-old brooding pop songstress is returning to Miami with another 365 days of experiences behind her, a new album entitled Goddess, and a gift for all her fans.

Win Free Tickets for Phil Collins and Little Dreams Gala at Fillmore Miami Beach


He can feel it coming in the air tonight.

Of course, we're referring to the annual benefit gala for the Little Dreams Foundation, a youth scholarship and mentoring program created by Phil Collins and his ex-wife, Orianne Collins Mejjati.

On December 6, the Genesis member and "In the Air Tonight" crooner will be headlining the foundation's fancy fundraiser at the Fillmore Miami Beach, alongside Latin superstars Laura Pausini and Alejandra Guzman.

Now, it would cost a tidy (though very worthwhile) sum of $103.50 to $353.50 plus fees to attend the Little Dreams gala. Unless, somehow, one were to score free tix. (Donating the hundred of dollars in savings to Ms. Collins Mejjati's program is still advised.)

Check the cut for contest instructions.

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.
