Subsonica, Negrita, and Alessandro Mannarino - ArtsPark Hollywood - October 13

South Florida got a taste of Italian style on Saturday night, or as they might say, un assaggio di stile italiano, at an all Italian musical showcase in Hollywood. Dubbed Hit Week, the traveling fest brings top contemporary Italian acts to major cities in the U.S. and around the world. The goal is to show us stereotyping Westerners that Italian music doesn't necessarily mean a chubby, mustachioed mandolin player crooning "O Sole Mio" while weaving through Venice canals on an ornate paddleboat.

Hit Week's Broward edition brought Alessandro Mannarino, Negrita, and Subsonica to the Arts Park Amphitheater in downtown Hollywood for a full evening of free music. That's right, it was completely free. And you could bring your own booze.
