They are back in Miami for the third time to present their annual concert par excellence! The Living Earth Show will be presenting premiere performances of New York composer Jacob Cooper’s Pasturing (Reprise) and Philadelphian Jonathan Pfeffer’s The Bell, The Ball, The Bow-tie, and the Boot, two pieces that were written for the ensemble’s 2015 collaborative production with Post:Ballet. These works utilize electric guitar, percussion, samples, and other electronic sounds to create woks that dialogue with the classical tradition and contemporary culture in equal measure.

Called “a vanguard effort of new chamber music” and “energetically provocative” by The San Francisco Examiner, “a much sought-after presence on the indie classical scene” by The San Francisco Classical Voice, and “a fully distorted perpetual motion of awesome” by I Care If You Listen, The Living Earth Show – electric guitarist Travis Andrews and percussionist Andy Meyerson – has developed a reputation as one of the most versatile and virtuosic contemporary chamber groups on the west coast. Memorizing every work it performs, The Living Earth Show thrives on pushing the boundaries of technical and artistic possibility in its presentation of commissioned electro-acoustic chamber music.

Cost: Free

New Belgium Brewing’s annual Clips Beer & Film Tour is coming to Miami for the first time. Clips offers a venue where guests can try New Belgium’s most esoteric beer offerings, while watching short films created by New Belgium fans. Many of New Belgium’s Lips of Faith beers can be hard to come by and Clips offers the best way to try them. Up to 17 varieties from Lips of Faith to brewery classics will be on tap.

This beer-toting, film-traveling, nonprofit-benefiting show is going coast-to-coast hitting 21 cities in its fifth year with 100 percent of the proceeds from beer sales benefiting local nonprofits. Since its inception in 2010, Clips has raised close to $400,000 for nonprofits nationwide. Clips is a fundraiser for Urban Oasis Project – outside alcohol is not permitted.

New Belgium selects approximately 20 short films for the tour each season. All selected filmmakers for the 2014 tour receive a trophy-worthy beer in a custom screen-printed bottle, made exclusively for the winning submissions. This year, the chosen films include a banana with an attitude, ultra marathoners running with stubborn animals, neon spandex and much, much more! It’s a diverse and highly entertaining line-up with something for everyone.

“Clips is a great place to come together with friends and relax,” said Christie Catania, Clips National Special Events Manager. “It is an outdoor evening gathering, where you can connect with friends, watch films and enjoy good beers. One-hundred percent of proceeds from beer sales benefits your local nonprofit.”

Other tips:
Food is welcome; alcohol is not (leave that to us).
Bring low chairs or blankets – or lounge on the grass.
Entire families are welcome.
Bring your I.D. if you plan to sample beers!
Bring a water bottle – New Belgium gives away water for free.
Dogs are welcomed on a leash, under control, and by their owner’s side.
Please walk, ride a bike, carpool, or take public transportation!
