For a band whose catalog is as easily searchable in Google Maps as it is in Spotify, it comes as a surprise that last night Beirut made not just their debut in Miami, but in all of Florida. At least Transatlantic Festival, championing their motto “The Sound of the World Right Now,” was the perfect place for them to do it.… Read More
There’s hardly a better way to celebrate April Fool’s Day than getting foolishly funky with Lettuce.
The inaugural Fool’s Paradise, hosted at the St. Augustine Amphitheater by
NY-based funk outfit, Lettuce, was a great time. I arrived just before Lettuce’s 1st set of the weekend began and was surprised by how intimate the St.… Read More
To kick off last weekend, Of Montreal and opener Pillar Point (currently featured in WVUM’s regular rotation) met a heavy crowd at Fort Lauderdale’s Culture Room with a whimsical, psychedelic, and overall satisfying show.
The doors opened at 8 to welcome a number of concert goers I’ve never seen paralleled at this show–the place was packed.… Read More

This venue routinely bills big acts (Animal Collective recently announced a show there in November), but the crowd this time around made the show truly special.… Read More
Last year, we were all shocked to find out that that there was a brand new festival happening right on the foot of the Okeechobee River with a striking line-up. The inspiration for this festival began through what any good festival starts up with: the festival grounds.… Read More

RadioActive: Sunday @6pm.
Last week, Miami became home base for the 2016 presidential campaign trail bringing with it excitement, traffic congestion, political engagement and as would be expected: opposition and critical dialogue. This Sunday on RadioActive we tried to capture some of that dialogue.… Read More
Massive Ideas threw the inaugural Fractal Beach from March 11th-13th at Historic Virginia Key Park.
Fractal Beach was an intimate affair, as it took no longer than a minute to reach the stage area from the campsites. Despite some first-year hiccups related to the cancelation of late-night sets, good vibes prevailed throughout the weekend.… Read More
