Cool Things About this Week /// July 26th

By Giovanna Stallings-Blanche posted Jul 26, 2010 at 04:48 PM

Read more.

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.

DON’T FORGET:

Deadline is this Friday! let’s get it in!

 

In chronological order:

 

Monday

WVUM: MIAMI TIME: Matt Preira from Roofless Rex
on the air

From Matt:
“Hello and welcome to my first-person blog post. I’m going to be on WVUM tonight, from 7PM to 9PM. The program: MIAMI TIME. The host: the incomparable Giovanna Stallings-Blanche. The plan: play some records (I dug into 3 separate personal collections for this one), plug some events (what are you doing Thursday, Friday and Sunday?), and generally try to make life trapped in a car on 826 that much more tolerable. If you’re not in your car or by an old timey radio, you can stream WVUM directly from their website (upper right hand corner, “click to listen”).” Thanks Matt : )

CONCERT: CRITICALLY MASSIVE benefit show for MICHAEL LUM
at Churchill’s

Michael Lum, a huge supporter of the local music scene, a contributor and participant to Miami’s growing cycling subculture, was hit by a truck and placed in critical condition.

Come out and help support a young man who like many of us is not financially prepared for the medical services that helped save his life. So come on and join us during this month’s Critical Mass Miami. The whole night will be dedicated to MICHAEL and ride, walk, or drive to a great musical event in his honor!

COVER WILL BE 6 DOLLARS AND ALL PROCEEDS GO TO HELP MICHAEL AND HIS FAMILY PAY FOR HIS SURGERIES.

Roofless Rex is proud to announce the launch of our publishing branch, spearheaded by co-president Dana Basset. I SWEAR is the debut monograph from Miami-based artist Lazaro Rodriguez. The book develops the iconography and distinct tone of Rodriguez’s “Plan2Cry” and “LazRodriguez” websites, in which he appropriates content from the internet to probe interlaced themes such as the decadence of youth, queer desire and self-conception. I SWEAR enacts an intratextual, self-referential quality built upon a subtle and often witty dialogue between subject matter and composition

CONCERT: Natacha Atlas

PARTY: Poplife
at Grand Central


Sunday

Party: CHOCOLATE SUNDAYS
