We love festivals, even the small ones. But while most of our local festivals give non-natives the limelight, So Raw Festival aims to showcase the city's local artists and musicians to finally prove once and for all Miami possesses the rawest talent. The lineup so far includes Dan Melchior und das Menace, Jacuzzi Boys, Fey Gods, TeePee, Liquor Store, Hahahelp, This Heart Electric, Lil Daggers, Little Beard, Flux Forces, Pink Reason, Electric Bunnies, The Yolks, Melted Sunglasses, RotShit, Brian's Dirty Business and The CouchFace. Local artists on the bill include Peter Betancourt, Annabell Lee, Nikki Chasin and Sarah Taylor.
Fresh from the butcher.
