Nocturnal Celebrates Five Years This Saturday With Flo Rida, Git Fresh

Nocturnal, the other major superclub on NE Eleventh Street, has suffered its ups and downs, surviving through its fare share of closing and re-opening rumors over the years. But that's just par for the course in nightlife, where longevity is rare and a fifth birthday, which the dance warehouse celebrates this weekend, is truly an accomplishment. In a bit of local love, the main soundtrack for the event is 305 hip-hop, courtesy of live performances from Flo Rida and Git Fresh.

Flo is, of course, the hometown guy turned bona fide star, specializing in hip-hop verses over slickly produced dance-pop. If you turned on commercial radio at any point in the last six months, you at least heard his biggest hit to date, "Right Round." A couple months ago, he announced via Twitter that his third studio album, The Only One, is due out later this year. Nocturnal promoters promise this is a live show, not just an "appearance," and that he's scheduled to perform all his hit songs. Opening act Git Fresh, meanwhile, has also scored a little airwave love with songs like "What Them Girls Like," and a recent Flo Rida collab called "Arch Your Back." 

Nocturnal Five-Year Anniversary. With Flo Rida and Git Fresh. 11 p.m. Saturday, May 1. Nocturnal, 50 NE 11th St., Miami. Tickets cost $20 for general admission, $300 VIP in advance from Age 21 and up; 786-991-8939;
