It is with distinct pleasure that we offer you an evening of entertainment put on by our brother from another mother, Miami New Times' Crossfade blog. The Local does exactly what you think it does and brings out South Florida talent for the reasonable price of free to the friendly confines of The Stage.
On August 25, the furious beats and rhymes of young local talents O'Grime, Metro Zu, and Chalk converge at the aforementioned spot.
To get a quick primer, head first to Chalk's Soundcloud page. All of the experimental, tooth-rattling beats for a noisy night at home -- or a head-nodding drive down I-95.
Next, gravitate to Metro Zu's Soundcloud palace. The track "Gold" is tagged as "Cyberpunkfunk," which is remarkably accurate.
Finally, just hop to Crossfade to admire the latest video from O'Grime for "Almighty Dolla." It hauls.
O'Grime and Metro Zu as part of Crossfade Presents The Local at The
Stage. 9 p.m. Thursday, August 25. The Stage Miami, 170 NE 38th St., Miami. No cover. Call 305-576-9577 or
Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
