The Weeknd and Nervo Playing NYE 2015 Concert at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach


Poppy electronic tunes and "seductively tainted love songs" don't really go hand-in-hand.

But in Miami, anything goes... Especially 'round New Year's Eve.

That's why supermodel-turned-DJ twins Nervo and XO recording artist The Weeknd are throwing one of the biggest NYE 2015 ragers, poolside at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach.

Feeling the broke effects of all that Holiday shopping, and it's barely even mid-December?

#Yoppin Wednesdays: Niko Javan and 18 Projectors "Turn Club Into a Giant Hamburger"

Rendering by Niko Javan
Welcome to #Yoppin Wednesdays... Money stacks on burger stacks on stacks on stacks.

"Yop = Your Own Path."

This maxim is the essential tenet of the simple, self-empowering philosophy practiced and preached by Niko Javan, the Miami music producer, member of rap duo O'Grime, and eternal optimist whose "non-stop yoppin'" has led to festival slots at Bonnaroo and TomorrowWorld, as well as shoutouts from record labels like Diplo's Mad Decent and Skrillex's OWSLA.

Now Niko is expanding his inspirational life program to include a weekly South Beach party. And naturally, it's called #Yoppin Wednesdays.

Do the party crasher victory dance!

As much as we love to brag about how sexy and posh we are, truth is, not everyone in the Magic City is VIP.

But we all, however, have that one überly popular friend who gets invited to every single bash in the 305, which comes in pretty handy during Art Basel... Especially with all these exclusive parties you're not invited to.

So if you wanna party like a D-list celebrity for the night, you better start kissing ass to that buddy of yours. If you try hard enough, chances are your name will magically appear on the guest list.

NYC's Mother's Ruin and Commodore Taking Over Gramps to Kick Off Basel 2014 Week

Photo by Marta Xochilt Perez

Miami could be called the sixth Borough, what with so many transient artist types constantly commuting between New York and our city.

A lot of people who live in New York came from South Florida, and the quickly approaching Art Basel Miami Beach celebration is one of the largest comminglings of the year.

In a nod to the special NYC-to-305 relationship, Wynwood bar Gramps will kick off its week-long lineup of Basel events with tomorrow's special bar-meets-bar, when New York's Mother's Ruin takes over the drink menu to offer its favorite cocktails while award-winning bar food comes courtesy of Brooklyn's The Commodore.

Fashion Freakouts at '80s Prom

So much 'tude, so little time.

Prom was just better in the '80s. Haven't you seen John Hughes movies?

Unlike the plot of some '80s films, going back in time is impossible. The closest thing we can get to it is theme parties, and theme parties only work if people get on board with the theme.

Miami is not generally good at theme parties, but when it comes to '80s Prom, you bring your best. The Sweat Records tradition is 12 years old, and even though it's just a bad friend and a cigarette away from being a surly teenager, it still gets the glitz and goth glamour out of a Miami crowd.
