Smoke the sweet leaf like Danny Brown.

4/20 is more than just a holiday. It's a lifestyle, man.

And there's nothing like getting high and throwing on some classic rap records. 'Cause rapping and weed go together like, well, rapping and weed. That's not to say that all rappers smoke the sticky green flower, but those that do love to boast about it in song.

For most of us, unfortunately, life is not a rap track. But if there's one day when everyone deserves to celebrate like a famous rapper, it's 4/20.

Whether you've gone to the festival since the first year in 1999 or just started going a few years ago, the festival can feel a bit, well, different than when you were in your teens and 20s.

If so, you might want to check and see if you just might be getting too old for this shit.

Coachella 2014's Worst Moments

Coachella's first weekend was amazing this year! Except when it wasn't. Here are the parts of the festival that rubbed us the wrong way.

Saturday Night dust storm
Conditions may not have been as bad as they were during last year's Red Hot Chili Peppers set, but Saturday night's dusty conditions were still pretty awful. The winds started picking up when the sun started going down, and by dusk, the sky had turned a coffee-stain brown and festivalgoers were wiping desert residue from their eyeglasses and exposed skin. Dust gets everywhere -- in the cracks of your smartphone, for starters, and then, later, in your scalp, nose, and bronchial tubes. It's a disgusting affair and a reminder to bring a handkerchief next time. -Adam Lovinus

Categories: Lists, Local Music

Miami_Best_Record_Stores.jpg

There was a time when the cynics believed that record stores were doomed to go the way of Blockbuster video rental joints: abandoned and forgotten by the masses who once flocked to their doors.

But the resurging popularity of vinyl has created a new niche market in which local music shops can thrive. And here in Miami, we still have enough record stores, despite the loss of many old favorites, to satisfy even the pickiest of record nerds.

Whether on the prowl for vintage LPs or new releases, it's all about knowing where to look. So in the hope of helping the wax-diggers out, we here at Crossfade have put together this list of Miami's five best record stores.

Looking for love

There's something undeniably erotic about Coachella. Perhaps it's the triple-digit heat that gets you hot and heavy, or maybe seeing some of your favorite bands all in one weekend gets your juices flowing. Or, most likely, you're in your twenties so you're perpetually horny by default.

But who has the time and energy to charm that cutie in front of you during the Replacements' set enough to ensure coitus? You have three short days here, so you gotta cut to the chase. Smart festival goers who think with their head hop on over to Craigslist for their festival, er, festivities.

Here are five of the most...interesting personal ads on the site from those looking for a little festival fuck.

As a shopping primer, we consulted Sweat Records and its staff for some prime RSD 2014 picks.
