It’s officially time to start getting excited about South Florida’s summer music schedule. In addition to a number of smaller shows recently announced like the RX Bandits farewell show (see previous post) there are some serious concerts coming to town.
First, on June 4, prepare for some bass madness with Primus at the Fillmore Miami Beach. Opening for Primus is sax savant Skerik’s trio, The Dead Kenny G’s.
Second, Skullcandy’s IDentity Festival Tour is coming to Bayfront Park on August 25. If you could imagine a miniature UMF, that would be IDentity. A handful of UMF artists will be returning, such as Disco Biscuits, Crystal Method, Rusko and Kaskade.
The event will feature three stages. For the full lineup, click here.
The following month we have the great fortune to see Zappa Plays Zappa and Chick Corea’s Return to Forever IV at the same show! They will be performing at Mizner Park Amphitheatre on September 10.
Other shows scheduled this summer include Black Uhuru on June 15 at Grand Central, Hot Tuna on August 5 at Revolution Live, Reel Big Fish and Streetlight Manifesto on August 6 at Revolution Live, two nights of Perpetual Groove at the Culture Room (August 12 and 13) and Matisyahu at the Fillmore Miami Beach on August 25.
Surely more will come up as time goes by, so check back to stay up to date. In the meantime, prepare yourself for a wild summer.
UPDATE: Slightly Stoopid just announced Sunset Cove Amphitheatre in Boca Raton on August 20 as part of their Seedless Summer Tour!
