On the List: Alexandra Richards, Discosh*t and Felix Cartal

Last time we posted it was in May. Why? Because you're boring us Miami! Same shit every weekend over and over again. We thought the economic crisis would force clubs and promoters to get creative -- obviously, they don't care they are hemorrhaging money. Whatever, Miami can use one or ten less "ultra lounges."

But in case you are looking to party all weekend long, here is what you don't want to miss:

Let's hope she didn't inherit his smoking habit because Alexandra Richards, daughter of Keith Richards, is going to need plenty of endurance when she spins at Misfit Fridays tonight at Louis at the Gansevoort. The model/DJ might not have the skills of say, Erol Alkan, but she's pretty to look at.

Parkwest has been rechristened as Fame, despite our previous reports (which we still stand by). The party officially starts tonight with DJ Nikolas, but the real fun seems to happen Saturday morning, with its premiere of Discosh*t. The party starts at 4 a.m. with DJ Cocodrills. We haven't been to Fame yet, but we are hoping it brought back Twilo's old lighting system that could only have been described as Daft Punk-esque and better than LIV's current light effects.

It's the second Saturday of the month, and that could only mean that plenty of post-art walk parties to go to.

The State Of will, of course, play at Awarehouse starting at 10 p.m. Poplife hosts its monthly Pop Art party at White Room with DJs Aramis, Induce and Mike Duece. While over at Vagabond, Little Louie Vega returns for the... well, we lost count, but he always makes Saturday's Back Door Bamby Party memorable. And let's not forget Xperimento at Electric Pickle hosted by Locos Por Juana with DJs Strickly B, Will Renuart and Tomas of Aquabooty.

Across the causeway, Canadian DJ Felix Cartal will spinning at Heathrow Lounge along with DJs Damaged Goods and Troy Kurtz. And let us interject here in saying Heathrow has kind of fallen off the map, but were hoping some smart marketing keeps this venue on everybody's radar.

Sunday, Black Sunday at Bella Rose goes up against White Light Syndrome with Atlanta DJ Smiles taking over the decks. You can download Smiles' While Light Syndrome album here.
