WMC Preview: A Few Underground Parties

Every year, without exception, WMC showcases the biggest commercial

names in electronic dance music at Miami's myriad world-class

nightclubs and posh beachside hotels. With all the hype going to the

top dogs, it's easy to overlook some of the smaller gems on the

Conference's highly-anticipated itinerary. A shame, considering the

underrated quality of intimacy some of these more modest gatherings can

provide, and the light shed on both underground and local talent. Also,

with so many of the half-hearted attempts at providing

recession-friendly admission prices on the official list, these smaller

gigs often prove to deliver genuine bargains. Here's the scoop on a

handful of the choicest underground parties happening around town next
