Rock Kulture’s “Sobe Rock Invasion” Review

Rock Kulture’s “Sobe Rock Invasion” Review

By: Nando Tats

Twas just another night in Miami Beach, FL. Skanky outfits, extra small v-necks, shitty house music,overly priced tattoo parlors… Ahhhh, the glamour on Washington Avenue was flowing, and douche bags were flaunting their parents’ Beemers to the best of their ability.Upon arriving at Jazid at around 10pm, I was greeted by Rock Kulture’s Natalya and Alex. They were very courteous and helped each band finding their whereabouts. As musicians, our attention spam works a little something like this: “Can I park here? Can you watch my instruments? Is the bar open? Is that homeless guy, or is he in a band? Do they serve Ceviche here?”. At least that’s how my attention works…

The line-up for the night was as follows: Urban Rebel (Funk Deliciousness), BrandNamePunk (Pop/Punk Warriors), Dear Darling (Rock/Experimental Sweetness), Unmaskd (Rock / Alternative Sick Vocalistas), The Deadly Blank (Rock/Alternative Rawness), and The Nude Cap (Rock/Surf Drunken Good Time). The recipe was perfect; it was just what the live local music doctor had ordered.The crowd was settling in, and Jazid was becoming smaller and smaller. Drinks were flowing, cigarettes were being lit up and the mood was just right.

First up: “Unmaskd” – these dudes had their harmonies down to a science! The lead singer (Ju Rodriguez) looks like he could beat you to a pulp (which he probably could), but this dude had the most angelic voice. I hadn’t seen them before; however I was very impressed by what I heard. Their lyrics were uplifting, and the music… the music was heavy boy! HEAVY!

Second on the bill: “Dear Darling” – I immediately fell in love with their lead singer (Dama Vicke)… sweet Indie/Experimental melodies with a twist of sexy. The whole band dripped in sexiness. The progressions were tight, and the crowd was feeling it. Maybe I’m wrong, but I heard Pink Floyd meets Bjork. Am I wrong? Catch them live and prove me wrong. I’ve been a fan of Dama since the Huma Rojo days, and she never disappoints.

Third band on the bill: “The Deadly Blank” – or as the band likes to describe itself “Vintage rock with a modern roll”. That is actually a very accurate description. Think The Raconteurs meets Wolfmother.Think true rock-n-roll, think, think, think. Catch them live and prove me wrong.

Fourth on bill: “The Nude Cap” (my band) – the band that refuses to see babies vomiting on moneys. I can personally attest that this band is about partying and having a good time. Why not? So we got on stage, and couldn’t see a fucking thing because of poor lighting, but mainly because we were trashed. Well, not all of us, but mainly me. All right, only me… So I put my guitar down, tucked in my vagina and rocked the fuck out of Jazid. We had fun, did you? Yes you did. We rule, the end.

Fifth on the bill: “Urban Rebel” – Trip 6, Lac, and E, blew the roof of Jazid! These guys (and lady) are no joke. Funk / Groove / Rock: think Primus nips RHCP in the butt, while fingering Rage Against the Machine. All was working in their favor. Great sound, lighting, stage presence, and a very VERY precise tight set! Their special guest David De La Fe (a.k.a Freak, a.k.a Gracious Nipples) did not disappoint either, making an appearance in a few of Urban Rebel’s tunes. David has been a musician for the best part of his life, and it shows. Their guitarist for the night (whose name I’ve seem to have forgotten)brought it all together with only a few rehearsals, but just as tight as the other members in the band.

Last, but not least on the bill: “BrandNamePunk” – Now, this is the sound and attitude you want booked on your shows. Not only are Ricky, Marjorie, and Andy great musicians, they’re also a fun loving bunch.Their precise “brand” (get it?) of Pop/Punk puts New Found Glory, Green Day, Blink 182 to shame!Check out a little video called “Hopes and Dreams” where BrandNamePunk kidnaps Kristen Stewart (Twi-twat), and make her their love slave. Highly recommend you catch them live!!
So, will you be attending the next Rock Kulture event? Will you pay more attention to the bands mentioned above? Will you like this review? Was any of this offensive? Do you want to make love to me? Tu quiere Taco Bell?

I wrote this in a hurry without a spell check… so bring on the grammar police. I’ll have all your corrections and complaints filed under me nutsack.


Your Nude King.

Virginia Key landmark Jimbo’s closes for good – Key Biscayne –

[email protected]

Jimbo’s Place, a landmark Virginia Key fish shack and watering hole that had fallen on hard times in recent years, was closed Monday by the city of Miami.

The closing came at the request of Gail Araujo, representing the owner, James “Jimbo” Luznar, the city said.

Araujo, Luznar’s daughter, asked the city to secure the site to keep the public out while the family removes mementos and belongings, the city said.

Jimbo’s lured visitors with its shrimp and affordable ice-cold beers since the early 1950s. Over the years it has served as a backdrop for movies and television shows from Flipper in the 1960s to Dexter today.

But its power was cut off after a December 2009 electrical fire. Jimbo’s remained open on generator power, and customers could still sit outside enjoying the shrimp, smoked fish and cheap beer that were the mainstays of Jimbo’s menu.

Araujo made the final decision to close Jimbo’s. She told The Miami Herald last week that stress related to the lack of improvements at the site had caused health issues for both her parents.

Miami Second Saturday food truck fest cancelled amid controversy | Beached Miami


By Jared Goyette | March 8th, 2012 | No Comments

They’ll be no DJs playing at the food truck lot this Saturday

The Wynwood Street Food Fest that occurs during Second Saturday Art Walk has been cancelled amid a storm of accusations between the food trucks operators and Brad Knoefler, the neighborhood activist behind Grand Central Park.

The City of Miami’s code enforcement department informed the food trucks on Thursday that they could not gather in the lot at 2238 N.W. Second Ave. during art walk because they did not have the proper permits. The city’s action came just hours after Knoefler emailed officials inquiring about the event’s permit status.

While previous food truck gatherings during Second Saturday had the required “special use” permit, the lot recently changed hands, and the trucks were still in the middle of the permit process with the new owner, according to Richard Hales, a leader in the food truck community who operates the Dim Ssam a gogo truck and the Sakaya Kitchen restaurants in downtown and Midtown.

“We can’t complain to the city,” Hales said. “They’re doing their job and we have to follow the rules like everybody else. “It’s very unfortunate that a person who calls themselves an activist for the people… and is trying to promote development for the city, incites the zoning department to take action. It’s not what we need to move forward.”

Knoefler said it was not his intent to get the event shut down, but that he was acting to protect the “general community” and that he was”tired of illegal events,” which he sees as dangerous for the participants and potentially harmful to the reputation of the area…. Read more

Minimal llega a Deep Ellum con su honestidad

Minimal llega a Deep Ellum con su honestidad


Minimal llegan a Dallas el viernes 9 de marzo

DALLAS — A la par del reciente estreno de su tercer disco, Minimal, una banda de rock alternativo afincada en Miami, se presenta por primera vez este viernes 9 de marzo en Dallas como parte de una cartelera de rock independiente en Deep Ellum.

Alejo, baterista del grupo, conversó con desde Miami sobre el origen del grupo, el cual indicó, está integrado por 3 colombianos, un peruano y un nicaraguense, los cuales se conocieron jugando futbol y poco a poco fueron desarrollando el concepto de lo que hoy es Minimal.

No hay otra cosa que el público vaya a encontrar antes en esta banda al escucharla en vivo “que un sentido de honestidad”, afirma Alejo. “Y se van a divertir”, dice en anticipación  a su tocada, que calcula durará alrededor de una hora en el Prophet Bar.

La banda lleva siete años de existencia y en la actualidad promociona “A deriva”, del álbum “Antibalas corazón”.

Es un disco sin pretensiones, y que a diferencia del primero, cuya lírica fue un poco existencial, a decir de Alejo, es “más energético, aunque tiene un par de canciones lentas.”

La música de Mínimal es una buena mezcla de elementos electrónicos, con letras en inglés y español, y alguno que otro sonido de energía tropical.

Sobre las influencias del grupo, Alejo menciona a bandas como Café Tacuba o Radio Head, “pero en cada disco nos influye lo que escuchamos en el día a día… Aunque se nota una influencia de cosas que escuchábamos de más jóvenes como Aterciopelados, Caifanes, Postal Service o Pearl Jam”.

Las cosas no son demasiado fácil a nivel local para la propuesta de Minimal, siendo Miami la cuna de ritmos tropicales. Alejo reconoce que lo que abunda en esa ciudad es “música para mover el culito” y pocos son los lugares donde se tocan ritmos alternativos como el rock en castellano.
