Flyer of the Week: Champion Sound Brings Ayro to Electric Pickle July 8

Flyer design by Eddie Rosenstock

The motto is "Nothin' but the goods." And like some punch-drunk baby boxer beating a gong with bare bloody fists, the seven-week-old Champion Sound throwdown brings the noise in a big way. For proof of pure party acumen, just take a quick and dirty MySpace tour with a few members of the rapidly ballooning CS musical alumni, including hip-hop jam band Fusik, hometown funk hero DJ Le Spam, and local street trio Basic Vocab

Now, edging toward its eighth edition, this Champ baby is growing bigger, better, and bolder. Next Wednesday July 8, pianist/vocalist/MPC master Ayro (AKA Jeremy Ellis) flies down from the 313 (Detroit, motherfucker) to the 305 for his induction into the CS Hall of Noise and Punch-Drunkeness. Showing up in support will be DJs Santiago and Maneuvers, plus party residents Mr. Brown, Sire Esq., and A-Train. To get drunk yourself, there's $5 beer all night and free well drinks for the females from 10-11:30. So yeah, go help that little big guy bang the gong. 

Wednesday, July 8. Electric Pickle, 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Show starts at 10 p.m., and admission is $5. 305-456-5613;
