Dirty Hairy, the latest South Beach party promoted by a cohort of downtown kids, prides itself in being over-the-top. Its setting, LIV, is an almost ridiculously glam club in the revamped Fontaine­bleau, with one of the trippiest light shows around and a seemingly endless font of money to throw at megawatt electro-hip bookings. So it's fitting that the latest score — afterparties featuring Kid Sister, Flosstradamus, Diplo, and Chromeo — is the art-damaged New York duo Fischerspooner.

Group founders Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner gained their first taste of pseudo-mainstream fame around the turn of the millennium, when their forays into electronic music, performance art, and androgynous getups dovetailed nicely with the so-called electroclash movement. Fusing a heavily Kraftwerk-influenced production style with post-punk experimentation, their constant sonic and visual innovation — not to mention indelibly catchy creations — kept them popular long after electroclash went the way of the dodo.


10 p.m. Wednesday, March 18, at LIV at the Fontainebleau, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. Tickets cost $20. Age 21 and up. Call 305-674-4680, or visit

In recent years, when not busy dancing, sewing outrageous getups, and freaking out the squares, Fischerspooner has released tracks through the French label Kitsuné. Its third full-length album, Entertainment, promises, perhaps, a more accessible, rock 'n' roll-tinged sound — its producer, Jeff Saltzman, is best-known for his work with the Killers, the Black Keys, and the Sounds.
