It’s Music Monday, and this week, Miami will be full of some awesome (some free!) musical events. Let’s check it out

Are you a fan of Flying Lotus? Never heard of Flying Lotus?

Either way, you should go to Sweat Records tonight at 7pm, for a listening party of “You’re Dead!”, the new EP by Flying Lotus before it’s release tomorrow, October 7th. While there, snag some stickers, posters, and limited edition art cards with album character design cards by Shintaro Kago.

ARTIST TO WATCH: Check out Phresh James, a rapper born and raised in Miami who “brings the Southern beats without the Southern drawl.” Phresh will be performing on the Miami artist showcase stage titled “305 Live” at the A3C Festival in Atlanta.
