Carlos Santana, Amigos Invisibles Headlining World Golf Championships 2015 in Miami

Carlos-Santana_Concert_World-Golf-Championships_Miami_2015.jpg
Apparently, Carlos Santana is a fan of the 9 iron too. Not just the six string.

Who knew that Latin rock guitar gods liked to unwind with some putt-putt?

We would've guessed Carlos Santana preferred the relaxing effects of marijuana, transcendental meditation, and a marathon jam sesh. Rather than, say, six hours in the sun, 18 holes, and a frosty Arnold Palmer.

However, the psychedelic axe slinger has indeed been tapped as the headliner for Cadillac Miami Nights Live, a concert series going down during the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship 2015 at the Trump National Doral Miami.

He will be joined by special guests Los Amigos Invisibles, two still-secret co-stars, and loads of country club hippies.

Joy Division and New Order founding member Peter Hook.

In the spring of 1980, Joy Division's Ian Curtis hung himself. His tombstone reads "Love Will Tear Us Apart."

However, in the wake of Curtis' suicide, his bandmates Peter Hook, Bernard Sumner, and Stephen Morris decided to stay together. They'd made a pact, though, to abandon the Joy Division moniker if any founding member left the fold. So they needed another name. And they chose New Order.

This second incarnation of the band pioneered dance punk. They became MTV superstars. They're revered as immortal New Wave icons. And today, they're still touring -- just without Peter Hook.

He's instead returned to performing Joy Division. And the occasional opening set of New Order songs.

The-Weeknd_Nervo_NYE_2015_Show_Announcement_Fontainbleau.jpg

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.

A classic Neutral Milk Hotel promo photo. These days, the band doesn't even allow concert shots.

Neutral Milk Hotel is coming to town.

After 15 years apart, the much mythologized indie band, led by cult legend Jeff Mangum, got back together in 2013. An ever-extending world tour came next.

But now Mangum and company have announced "spring 2015 will be our last tour for the foreseeable future." And somewhat shockingly, they will be playing a Miami show next year.

Just check the cut for a message from the band and Neutral Milk Hotel's 2015 tour dates.

J. Cole Announces NYE 2015 on South Beach

J-Cole_New-Years-Eve_South-Beach_Miami_2015.jpg

The Dreamer returns.

As the first artist signed to Jay Z's Roc Nation, J. Cole emerged onto the worldwide rap scene amid crushing hype.

But the Fayetteville, North Carolina-bred rapper and Dreamville Records founder never broke. He just slowly and steadily turned out album after album of thoughtful, ambitious hip-hop -- from his 2009 debut, The Warm Up, to last year's certified-gold, chart-topper Born Sinner.

Over the summer, Cole sold out downtown Miami's Grand Central (even turning away over 2000 people) for his Dollar & Dream Tour. And now he's coming back to end the year with an NYE 2015 show at the Delano Beach Club on South Beach.

Gratuitous tongue wagging. Thong onesies. Human-sized bananas.

Where are we? An Art Basel Miami Beach rager? Or a Miley Cyrus arena show?

Exactly. And that's why it is almost no surprise that America's most ratchet former Disney starlet is bringin' dem Bangerz to Basel week.

She has just been confirmed as the main attraction for Jeffrey Deitch, Tommy Hilfiger, and V Magazine's #ABMB bash at the Raleigh Hotel on South Beach.

But, duh, it's a private, invite-only thang.

After bassist Gerard Smith's 2012 death from lung cancer, TV on the Radio almost called it quits.

"At the end of the last album and tour cycle I was on the page of, 'We could put this down right now and I'd feel really good about what we've done,'" TVOTR frontman Tunde Adebimpe recently told Billboard.

Two years later, though, Adebimpe and his Brooklyn indie band are back. They've just released a stellar new album, Seeds. And they're about to return to Miami for a Basel week experiment with Tumblr IRL.
