Black Friday Workout

From now until the new year, we all tend to overindulge. Eggnog latte with whipped cream, anyone? And all of that turkey and pumpkin pie can’t be good. So perhaps it would be wise to squeeze in some exercise. After you’ve received your annual Black Friday trampling and beating, head to the Stage for a party-and-workout combo courtesy of Afrobeta. The duo, consisting of Cuci Amador and Tony Smurphio, creates tunes that would make Miami Sound Machine jealous. Cuts such as “Do You Party?” and “Play House” provide the perfect rump-shaking factor — you are bound to lose a few pounds. And if you’re looking to take the workout home, Afrobeta’s first full-length album, Under the Streets, is available as a digital download. Doors open at 11 p.m., with “Best of Miami” 2011 winner Entresol as opener.
