Tonight in Live Music: Thursday, August 14

*Not live, per se, but a special DJ event: check out B-more's Dave Nada at tonight's edition of Money$hot at the Vagabond. Click here to read more about him, and click here to check out a Pitbull remix by him.

*Something a little more high-brow: Ellis Marsalis (yep, like Wynton) performs at the Coral Gables Congregational Church. Click here to read more about it.

*Up-and-coming Oregonian jazz chanteuse Esperanza Spalding (what a name) plays at Jazziz -- um, not to be confused with Miami's older Jazid, it's a club inside the Seminole Hard Rock complex. Click here to read more about Spalding.

*As part of its monthly showcase series at the Florida Room at the Delano, the forward-thinking label Giant Step presents Little Jackie, a singer with a big voice and plenty of Sixties soul samples woven into her beats.
