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.
Our Events Calendar is awesome, check it on our main page.
p.s. - Summer is almost over, it sucks, but we’ve got lots of fun events and surprises coming up for the fall semester! and tonns and tons of giveaways for what already looks like one of the best fall concert seasons. Trust me, I had to make a very serious spreadsheet for it.
p.p.s. - We’re printing our new stickers! We will officially announce the winner very soon, and if you like, cop ‘em.
In chronological order:
FILM: Brazilian Film Festival: Beyond Ipanema
7pm at the Colony Theatre
“Beyond Ipanema – Brazilian Waves In Global Music is a documentary about the repeating cycle of discovery of Brazilian music in the world. Through interviews with David Byrne, Devendra Banhart, M.I.A., Mutantes, Tom Zé, Seu Jorge, Thievery Corporation, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and many others, the film surveys the Brazilian music experience outside of the country. Artists, producers, DJs and critics analyze how the crosspollination of musical styles, as well as sampling and globalization, have helped Brazil to secure a unique position in global culture.”
5 dollar Culture Shock tickets available and also available for other films from the Brazilian Film Festival.
