Floor, Miami Sludge Legends' 24-City Reunion Tour Kicking Off at Churchill's Pub


"Floor is back."

Those were the words of the Miami sludge legends' chief songwriter, vocalist, and guitar guy Steve Brooks when he spoke with Crossfade about the reunion of his cult '90s and early 2000s crew.

Formed in 1992, broken up by '96, back together in '97, near dormant till 2001, and then broken up again by 2003, Floor's tumultuous time together produced only one album ... Till now.

Curatorially slammed together by Miami's Spilt Milk Projects, Brooklyn's Ad Hoc, and Wynwood's Gramps, these "two nights of underground music and art," headlined by beasty Detroit noise-rock band Wolf Eyes and Houston psych crew Indian Jewelry, will be going down on December 6 and 7 at Churchill's Pub and Gramps.

The fest will also feature another ten other crews, including South Florida's own Teepee, Cop City/Chill Pillars, Lil Daggers, and Nerve City. So again, we gotta say, "Whoa! Yeah! No shit!"

Ghostface Killah and De La Soul Headlining Art Basel Week at The Stage Miami


Art Basel Miami Beach week isn't just about paint on a canvas, graffiti on a wall, or a sculpture in the park.

It's also about the drop of the boom-bap beat from the most significant art form of the last half-century, hip-hop.

Starting in the late 1980s and early 90s, De La Soul and Wu Tang's Ghostface Killah helped turn rap into a global force. And now they're headlining the Basel 2013 lineup at the Design District's The Stage Miami, joined by the virtuosos of Black Violin, Sheek Louch from Tha Lox, and other special guests.

We chatted with the club's DJ Heron to get the lowdown.

Miley Cyrus Announces Bangerz Tour Dates, Coming to Miami During Ultra Music Festival


Twerkin' is the best way to celebrate any holiday.

Do it on a pumpkin. Do it on a Turkey. Do it atop a Christmas tree. Do it on a giant candy heart that reads "U R GR8." Do it on a wrecking ball while naked and screaming, "We Can't Stop!," at an stadium-sized rave in downtown Miami.

Just ask over-the-top ratchet white-girl party princess Miley Cyrus, who'll be twerkin' to Bangerz all across the continent, from Valentine's Day in Vancouver to Ultra Music Festival time (or at least what'll likely be its first weekend) in the MIA.

Check the cut for Miley Cyrus' full 38-city Bangerz Tour schedule. And sign up for the Facebook RSVP for chances to buy early tix.
