What better way to consummate a day of relishing in the art at Miami’s Art Basel than going to check out some live music! You can catch Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor and Neon Indian on Friday, December 7 at Bardot for a more intimate musical experience. If you are interested in a more interactive musical performance, you should check out Flying Lotus and Dan Deacon at Grand Central on Saturday, December 8. Known for his live performances, musician and composer Dan Deacon takes audience participation to the next level with the creation of an interactive audience performance app for smart phones. In a recent interview, Deacon says that “for a while [he has] been thinking of new ways to recontextualize the audience and making them the performers or focal points of the performance”. The Dan Deacon Smartphone App enables Deacon to synchronize light and sound on the phones of audience members based on their various locations in the venue.
Miami’s own talented songstress, Rachel Goodrich will be playing at the Vagabond tonight. The show was moved from Bayfront Park due to the threat of rain. Indoors or out, this is a show worth seeing. Her unique shakeabilly style isn’t typically associated with the Magic City, but she is undoubtedly one of our best musical exports. She was just profiled by VOGUE. Read the article here. And enjoy this tune.
