Not happening! Back on!
We received word that Get Physical Miami's event Saturday, March 28 at Charcoal Studio has been canceled. Calls to Charcoal Studio confirmed that it was true. We still are looking into the specific reason why the party was scraped. We did some snooping around on our own and we noticed that Booka Shade is now listed as an "exclusive" act for Ultra Music Festival on March 28. Now we aren't throwing around accusations -- er, maybe we are -- but could Ultra's organizers have offered Booka Shade more money to kill the party? A party that technically competed the very same night as Ultra and its Carry On event right next door to Charcoal Studio at Soho Studios.

UPDATED: I just got word that it's not canceled! It's moved to Kukaramakara, Studio A's former digs. Same lineup, same night, same time. All I can say is that I'm relieved.
