Right about wait for it, wait for it now, there are 6,145 DJs spinning wax at WMC parties across Miami (not an official statistic). Stacked end-to-end, thats enough skull-capped hipsters to circle the island of Miami Beach from the southernmost tip to the Convention Center and back. Scary. Point is, theres going to be much overlap; How will you ever identify the players from the posers?
Heres how: You forget Miami Beach and its day-glo drones and head out to Noises from the Underground at the Jakmel Art Gallery in Wynwood (3501 NW Second Ave., Miami). Noises is an art show-cum-electro showcase, where local Miami peeps who may someday grace gallery walls and album covers alike will throw down some serious craft. The shows organizer Franceasca Seiden knows a smidge about both the audio and the visual realm her production company 3GZ is best known for the electro documentary Darkbeat, which is screening at ULTRA and other venues around WMC so she decided to combine both elements in one kick-ass show. On the art side, local graf-artists, painters, and photographers such as Miles will set up shop: He captures Miami denizens in their rocking-est moments, like at, say, a bondage party. As for your ear holes, Miamis dynamic laptop duo, Electric Porkchop (two great flavors that taste great together), will do the dirty work with their cut-and-paste remix sets. There will be nearly a dozen other artists across both spectrums, which means whether you like art in your rock or rock in your art, youre set. Now thats a DJ shindig you can get your booty behind. $5 gets you in the door. Call 305-917-5257, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
