VC_FRIDAY RECAP 5/3/13

IMG_1956You know we cant lay off the bass. Neither can the average Miamian, so this friday we decided we were overdue for a night out and took a plunge into the pleasant abyss of nightlife.IMG_1978

First we took a cab to the FDR at Delano in Miami Beach , where Minimax and Slap & Tickle where having a throw down deck-side. The music was great, Matt Ohashi and Andrew Ward took us into another dimension where time ceased to exist.

Next thing you know we are at  Treehouse with the guys from Link & Miami Rebels and none other than Luca Bacchetti, Needless to say, It was a memorable evening and an unpleasant morning. Big ups to Carma PR, Minimax, Link & Miami Rebels. Dont forget to check out the album after the break!

DVDASA Podcast: Why you should listen.

You might tune in for Howard Stern’s tell-how-it-is attitude. You might be into Joe Rogan’s ability to accurately describe a trans-asa1dimensional drug episode hallucination by hallucination. Or you might just be into hearing people rant their problems away for hours on end. Podcasts has found a place into our everyday lives, either on the way to work or on a long trip aboard. We are all natural born storytellers; be it novels, comic books, films, or most importantly, narration. Technology has been increasing publishing accessibility to the common man, the Podcast being one of the most popular methods.

That being said, boring podcasts are a dime a dozen. Just because you can does not mean you should. Everyone’s experience is valid but without eloquence and good oral narration skills your conspiracy theory might be just that. Just because you bought the newest version of Traktor and downloaded a top 40 Dj chart DOES NOT make you a Dj. Same logic applies to podcasts, a couple microphones and conversations amongst your friend will not generate a good podcast, but with experience you can share your content to the masses. This is exactly what David Choe and Asa Akira have done with the DVDASA Podcast.

STRANGEWAYS Zine Release Part Deux

Following our interview with Luis Pinto from strangeways, we thought it was only adequate to interview the guys in charge of some of the artwork including the bad-ass posters for the event. I got a chance to kidnap Augusto Mendoza and Edwin Beuchamp, founders of Coloform, for a small chat at the Lesters bathroom. They talked about collaborations, strangeways, and of course, the ladies.

The internet is overrated. Meet Luis Pinto, founder of STRANGEWAYS

Vicios culturales and strangewaysAfter a short break, Vicios is back… And shit will impact a fan at the speed of light. This month we met with the crew responsible for the STRANGEWAYS zine at their release party in Lesters. Yes, I said zine. Zines are a self-published form of print media that get produced in small circulation with the use of copy machines. The most notoriously known example is Thomas Paine’s Common Sense which is considered to be one of the sparks for the American Revolution. Zines have been appropriated since the birth of the printing press… but enough scholarly bullshit. Punk rock quelled  teen angst in the 70′s with these publications.  They are a cheap (not free), creative and incredibly personal way to communicate with complete control over aesthetics and content. Tangible media is becoming scarce and that is a terrifying thought (think idiocracy). Miami, meet the zine’s rebirth right here in the sunburnt state. Luis Pinto founder of STRANGEWAYS had an encounter with Jose Garza in the bathroom? at Lesters where they had a chance to tell us about his strange ways.

Here & There w/ Lamia Khorshid

Jose Garza got a chance to catch up with Digital Photographer Lamia Khorshid during the soft opening of her exhibit ‘Here and There’ at the UM Gallery in the Wynwood Building. Her images are thought provoking and visually striking, prompting conversation on  transitions within culture, people, and even things. Read more about her work after the video!

Opening Reception | November 10th 2 – 10 PM

Panties Drop With THE COST

When your hear them play, it makes you wanna get up and move to the rythm of the music. The Cost consist of Manny Roman as Vocalist and lead guitarist, Nathan “Nate” Molina on the Bass, Julian Neverready as second guitarist, and Daniel Cardenas on the drums. Together they compose some heavy punk with traces of The Cure and other greats. Being a  local Miami band and all, these guys are very close friends of mines. I got many chances to see them live in Churchills Pub  drinking some gin and talking about the good old days.  The band has been playing their ass off, and it been going pretty fucking good for them. Full rooms in places such as The Electric Pickle, Lesters, Green Room, Ricochet, Purdy Lounge and of course Churchills Pub. The fellas have outgrown the good old tre o’ fi and are now causing havoc in  Orlando at Peacock Room and Uncle Louise. Playing alongside bands like Jacuzzi boys, Las Tias, and Heartline Fits. The boys were busy playing this past weekend in Orlando, but i got a chance to get on the phone with them. Ladies and gentelmen , It is my please to introduce all of you to The Cost.
