"Dress up and come party with us!"

That's an excited invitation from Win Butler, Arcade Fire, and a weird bunny rabbit to this week's Reflektor concerts in Miami.

Of course, you (probably) don't have tickets. And that means you're screwed harder than a cottontail at the peak of mating season.

Oh, wait ... Win, the crew, and Rhythm Foundation just released a final batch of tickets to Thursday's show at the Little Haiti Culture Center, you lucky bunny.

UPDATE These last Arcade Fire tickets are all sold out.

UPDATE #2 Arcade Fire is reportedly returning to Miami for two nights in April 2014.

Uncle Sam's Music Moves to New South Beach Location

Categories: Heads Up

Uncle_Sams_Music_Moves_Miami.jpg

For 22 years, Uncle Sam's Music has been one of the best record stores in South Florida, a place where you can buy a used CD, a new record, and a bag of incense, a pipe, and a t-shirt to go with it.

After nearly a quarter century, though, shop owner Lisa Teger Zhen has packed up shop and moved two blocks south to Uncle Sam's new location at 939 Washington Ave.

It's the same great store, with a bright new look. Here's what the shop's founder has to say about selling wax, the old dirty floors, and kids buying records.

Five Reasons Why The Killers Don't Suck

Categories: Heads Up, Lists

TheKillers.jpg
via Facebook.com
Every hipster millennial had their Killers moment.

These kids vehemently yelled "Mr. Brightside" in the shower, and then on the bus to school (since it was 2004, and Discmans were still in), they packed an extra set of Duracells for a habitual Hot Fuss morning sesh.

Over the years though, overweening frontman Brandon Flowers (he called the Bravery a fake band and deemed Green Day's American Idiot 'anti-American) and company have been praised and vilified for their glossy faux-Brit New Wave Duran Duran theatrics. And the band's journey into Bruce Springsteen's small town tropes on 2006's Sam's Town didn't bode well either -- though Flowers called it "one of the best albums in the past 20 years." Sheesh. Don't mess with The Boss.

The Killers released two other records (Day & Age, Battle Born), but they're pretty forgettable. Over a 12-year career, though, the Sin City rockers have sold 20 million albums worldwide, and are still touring hardcore. So we here at Crossfade give you five reasons the Killers don't suck.

DJ Carnage on Haters: "Some People Just Have a Stick Up Their Ass"

DJ_Carnage_Interview_Miami_2013.jpg

DJ Carnage -- he's "just chilling, eating food, watching Netflix," doing whatever.

You might have heard his breakout Bang! EP. Or you might have heard about how he pissed off a bunch of agro commenters by saying he was over trap. Or you might have killing it at Ultra Music Festival or Tomorrowland.

Ultimately, though, despite the hype and occasional controversy, Carnage just wants to have a good time. And he's seriously stoked about playing his first show at Mansion on South Beach. So last week, we here at Crossfade chatted with him, talking SoBe, EDM, burrito utopias, chill moms, and bringing that big-room energy no matter what.

It's hard out there for a musician. Just ask the "King of Miami Pop," Robert Elias.

"It's been somewhere between fun and neurotic," laughs Elias. "It's lots of hard work, but I feel like I'm kind of starting to get to a really interesting place in my career."

Aside from having released his debut English album, Magic City, last year, promoting his latest single and music video "How Does It Feel," and performing at your fave local hot spots, Elias has just been named a finalist in Dewars' Dewarista talent competition, featuring judge and Latin music superstar Juanes.

"I'm superpumped," says Elias.

Scarf awesome bites and guzzle fine booze with Juke and New Times' Iron Fork.

Dinner without music.

It lacks what the French call ambiance.

That's why we here at New Times always pair our Iron Fork fiesta (AKA "Miami's most hotly anticipated culinary event") with some tasty local tunes.

And this year, we've ordered up a trio platter of pop-rock, Latin funk, and dirty blues.

Air Supply and So Much "Love" Coming to Fillmore Miami Beach on July 13

Air_Supply_Concert_Fillmore_Miami_Beach_2013.jpg

We've all been there -- nervously flipping through a back issue of Better Homes and Gardens while silently praying that a power outage (or the apocalypse) strikes before some woman named Heidi or Joan or Colleen calls your name and says those eight dreadful words: "The dentist is ready to see you now."

But then the adult-contemporary pop of Air Supply comes washing over you.

Miley Cyrus Twerking on South Beach With Calvin Harris and Y100's Mackapalooza 2013

Remember when Miley Cyrus was just a lil' buck-toothed, aw-shucks, Southern-fried Disney princess?

Well, erase that shit from your mind. 'Cause Hannah Montana has been dead since 2011. And Ms. Cyrus has grown up into a twerking, penis cake-loving, side boob-flashing, porn star-smooching, 20-year-old Glamazon from some not-so-distant NC17-rated future.

Just look at the vid for Miley's new single, "We Won't Stop." There's gold grills, "twerk" spelled out in Spaghetti-Os, and lots of shameless ass-flexin' ... She's basically become Rihanna's whitebread bad girl twin.

Marisa Monte Searches for Verdade Uma Ilusão at the Fillmore Miami Beach

Marisa_Monte_Concert_Fillmore_Miami_Beach_2013.jpg
Marisa Monte wants a verdade. Or the illusion of it.

There's something about Brazil that exudes sexiness. Maybe it's the way the tongue rolls when speaking the language. Or the beautiful, modelesque women who live there. Or samba. Whatever it is, we can all agree the place is an exotic wonderland.

Luckily, you don't have to understand Portuguese to fall in love with the lyrical, smooth Brazilian o brega sound of Marisa Monte.

The three-time Latin Grammy-winning artist has been in the biz since she was a little menina. She has sold millions of albums worldwide. She was even named Rolling Stone Brasil's most important living Brazilian singer.

But since her 2006 release of both Universo Ao Meu Redor, a fusion of old and new samba songs, and Infinto Particular, a compilation of unrecorded tracks from the past 15 years of her career, the sultry songstress has taken a hiatus from the public eye.
