South Florida indie rockers LAVOLA just put out their new album titled This Book Is My Cowardice, and they had a show at The Vagabond in Miami to celebrate (they had shows in other parts of South Florida for it as well). They invited Miami-based rockers The Vilifiers to join in on the fun as well.
Check out the photos and videos from the show below.
As you may or may not know, I’m a big supporter of local music. I just never had the bright idea to actually document the performances of these musical geniuses in the form of pictures and video until recently.
So in my pursuit of good local music here in Miami, I headed to the The Vagabond for their Retro Thursdays weekly event because I saw that there were going to be two live performances. I was blown away by what I heard from EDM artist Kenichi Ohme and rockers False Flags!
Check out the videos below and you’ll see what I mean.
If there’s any crew in Miami that knows good music, it’s the Slap & Tickle crew.
They started their night on Tuesdays at The Electric Pickle back in early 2012. Now, they are over at Bardot on Tuesdays and at The Garret on Saturdays for a new party called Bodega that they launched back in November 2013 in partnership with Poplife Miami.
The Twelves of Rio de Janeiro, Brasil are dynamic musical duo João Miguel and Luciano Oliveira. If you’re wondering how they got that badass name, well, it actually came from the fact that they were both born on the same day in the same year. Cool, right? But that’s only the beginning about what’s cool about these guys. They take songs and flip ’em on their heads with great precision and skill and have been doing so since 2005. As a matter of fact, this is the remix they made that introduced me to them.
So it turns out that they were wrapping up their 2014 North America Tour right here in Miami at the one and only Bardot. I can honestly say I was thoroughly impressed by their revamped live show and heaps of all new edits of many popular classics. Highlights for me were them throwing down Casco – Cybernetic Love, Locomia – Locomia, New Order – True Faith, and starting out with Fox the Fox – Precious Little Diamond.
Below is a little treat for those that couldn’t be there to see it live. Check it out and let me know your thoughts if you have any.
