As you may or may not know, WVUM likes to highlight events happening around Miami that we think are fun / cool / interesting / on air / pretty / crazy / tasty / free or cheap / worth talking about / maybe not mentioned enough. So, to make this make more sense we are starting a weekly run through of some events on this blog right here.  This is the second ever. Expect this to get better (maybe).

Our Events Calendar is awesome, check it on our main page.

In chronological order:


SKATE: Go Skate Day sponsored by Raza Libra, I Am Your Villain, Indy and MIA
at MIA Skate Park in Doral

PARTY: LOCALS ONLY feat BLU JEMZ (NYC, Turntable Lab) and Jake Jefferson DJing + complimentary BBQ

Release Party for the Scion Compilation “NIGHT PEOPLE.” “This EP includes elements of new wave, electrap, house, funk, synth-vamp and more and includes remixes by Pollyn, Snack N C’mish, Computer Jay (of Dam-Funk’s band Master Blazter) and Nile Delta.” The physical EP is all painstakingly written liner notes and features a code for a free download of the actual tracks. Eat up.

This weekly party is a well kept secret. Oscar G, house legend, plays with a live band on variations of afro-cuban rhythms, while resident Lazaro Casanova always brings in fresh opening and closing sets.

2212 SW 8th Street, in Little Havana

DJ SET: Bart B-More
at LIV


ART OPENING: Human Rites
at the Bass Museum, 7 - 9pm

“This exhibition examines ritual through art; and it also examines art through ritual, depending on your point of view.  From mundane human activities to sacred practices, from the past through the present, rites and rituals have been pervasive subjects in artistic practice.  Human Rites will present works such as 15th century devotional polychrome statues of Mary and 16th century altarpieces alongside works by renowned contemporary artists. This juxtaposition of works circumscribes the timelessness of rituals, expressed historically and anthropologically in religious, as well as other contexts.
Votive works by Janine Antoni and Marina Abramovich survey the ceremonial aspects of womanhood; Rirkrit Tiravanija’s Buddha figurines describe the devotional offerings that people manufacture for their gods; collected items by artists like Mark Dion, John Beech, and César Trasobares investigate form, the found object and performative aspects; Allan McCollum ‘s repetitive series’ reflect the construction of objects as substitutes for the real object. Ai Wei Wei uses the bicycle as both symbol and found object in the construction of a monumental totem form. Artists in the exhibition include: Thomas Hirschhorn, Priscilla Monge, El Anatsui, Erwin Wurm, Mark Dion, Christian Boltanski and Cesar Trasobares, and others.”
