Matthew Dear returns to Miami Saturday, August 16, at Boutique.

Avant-garde electropop artist/producer Matthew Dear, also known as Audion, returns to Miami next Saturday, August 16 at Boutique (NE 13th Street & First Court, Miami) -- er, you know, Pawn Shop Lounge's Boutique Room. I know! It's still open! Who knew!

Dear's return to the Magic City is thanks to Safe, who have been putting together great EDM events all around the city. Dear is a special treat because he definitely appeals to a wide variety of people, including IDM fanatics, party people and house-heads. He is very much inspired by the Detroit-techno scene, but could easily be compared to acts like Ladytron and Hot Chip, who he has opened for in the past.

Tickets are available in advance for $15 at Wantickets.com; doors open at 10 p.m.; 18+; entrance through the alleyway entrance in the back at NE First Court.

Check out Matthew Dear's video for "Don and Sherri" off his 2007 release Asa Breed as well as the full flier after the jump.
