Yo Miami’s Beatnik Tuesdays at The Stage
Tuesday, April 10th 2012, 9pm-12am
170 NE 38th Street
Miami, FL 33137
In the 50s â€œBeatnikâ€ evolved as a media-induced caricature of the ideals presented by the Beat Generation. Stereotyping the individual members of the movement, it became a word synonymous with barrette wearing, poetry reading, cigarette smoking commies.
Turning the tables on the all-powerful media machine, Yo Miami is taking the word back for the people with their new Jazz, Blues, and Hookah infused evening at The Stage.
A mashup of jazz and blues musicians will be brought into the space, transformed for the night to transport you back to the 1950s at the peak of the Beat Generationâ€™s reign.
Depending how the first one goes we’ll see if it’ll turn into a regularly occurring event (monthly or bi-weekly) – Let’s make it a recurring event!
We got Buffalo Brown from Elastic Bond on guitar, Nabedi Osorio from The State Of on drums, and Adrian Gonzalez from Suenalo on keys/bass.
On top of that, Midtown Smokeshop is providing hookahs on site which’ll be $15.
Doors open 9PM
