Get Funk'd Up at Soho Studios this Saturday Night with Pirate Stereo, Danny Daze, and More

​In the ongoing spirit of philanthropy that seems to have taken over

Miami's dance music scene (with recent charitable events like "The

Vagabond for a Cause" with John Digweed and "Dance for a Cause"

featuring Chris Fortier at Electric Pickle) Technique Miami presents

"Get Funk'd Up" at Soho Studios on August 29, a party to benefit Help

Darfur Now.

Combining live music, interactive art installations, body painting, and an elaborate light show, Get Funk'd Up

promises an unforgettable night of multi-sensory stimulation at one of

Wynwood's premier venues which has hosted such past events as the PULSE

art fair and various WMC and Miami Fashion Week parties.

The dance-friendly musical lineup will include DJ sets by local

favorites Danny Daze, Troy Kurtz, and Santiago Caballero, and most

notably by Boston-based electro duo Pirate Stereo, who have garnered

increasing recognition in the East Coast since 2006, playing alongside

the likes of Alan Braxe, Diplo, and Treasure Fingers.

In addition to

the visual flair provided by local artists Diani Safdeye, Marisa

Matluck and Andrea Chehebar, the hosts are encouraging patrons to bring

in glow sticks and neon paraphernelia of their own to add to the "glow

in the dark" theme of the party, for which they will also provide

water-soluble neon paint so that you can paint yourselves or each other and express yourselves by painting on the walls. So if you're feeling

limber on Saturday night, head down to Soho Studios for a night of

rowdy and colorful fun and party for a cause that truly matters!

Get Funk'd Up at Soho Studios. Saturday, August 29, 11 p.m.-5 a.m. 2136 NW 1st Ave (entrance on 21th St.) Miami. $20 cover, all proceeds to benefit Help Darfur Now.
