In the past 2 decades, Few artists have managed to garner the accolades, and respect that Marc Leclair has. Widely known as the pioneering force in the creation of micro-house, releasing “My Way” in 02′; and introducing a new way of creating dance music— spawning a different breed of artist, and listener.

As a key figure in Perlon’s ; arsenal, Marc has meandered his way through the worlds of dance music under various monikers, taking on slightly different personas with each one— the most notable being, the funk driven, sample laden, Akufen.

Thursday, Marc will be metamorphosing into his ultra elusive, slightly murkier Horror Inc. alter-ego; where we’ll be the first ones to witness him performing an unprecedented DJ set under that alias.

To round out the experience; we’re opening up the evening with our own Seia, and Sons Of Immigrants.

Dropkick Murphys

Revolution Live

Dropkick Murphys are an American Celtic punk band known for their loud, energetic live shows. The band was initially signed to independent punk record label Hellcat Records, releasing five albums and making a name for themselves locally through constant touring and yearly St. Patrick’s Day week shows held in and around Boston. The single “Tessie” became the band’s first mainstream hit and one of their biggest charting singles. The band’s final Hellcat release, The Warrior’s Code, included the song “I’m Shipping Up to Boston”; the song was featured in the Academy Award-winning movie The Departed, and went on to become the band’s Platinum-selling single and remains one of their best-known songs. The band then began releasing music through their own imprint label. The Meanest of Times made its debut at No. 20 on the Billboard charts and featured the successful single, “The State of Massachusetts”, while Going Out in Style was an even bigger success, making its debut at No. 6, giving the band their highest-charting album. The band’s eighth studio album, Signed and Sealed in Blood made its debut at No. 9 on the Billboard charts. The band is currently recording their ninth studio album which they expect to have released by the end of the year or early 2017.

ZZ Top

Fillmore Miami Beach

The one, the only ZZ Top swings into the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater Friday, March 17th, 2017 / 8:30PMin their most intimate performance in years. Tickets go on sale starting on Friday, November 11th / 10AM.

ZZ TOP a/k/a “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas,” lay undisputed claim to being the longest running major rock band with original personnel intact and, in 2004, the Texas trio was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

City and Colour

Revolution Live

For someone like City and Colour’s Dallas Green, it’s hard to imagine that there’s much left to search for – he’s traversed the globe on tour, released numerous albums (one most recently as You+Me with Alecia Moore, aka P!nk) and collected scores of accolades. Though Green is a musician, he doesn’t make a show of things: that’s the songs’ job. Thus he’s done this all quietly, intentionally, still looking for the next answer or dog-eared chapter each record holds. And now he once again uncovered something new: a certain kind of family in his bandmates. Even more pivotal was trying to capture the essence of their live show symbiosis in the studio; which comes through with an undeniable force. For a project that was very much about the inner world of Green, these relationships have morphed City and Colour into something with more emotive power than ever before: the layers go beyond just music and lyrics, into the people creating the songs themselves.

Simple Plan

Revolution Live

Simple Plan is one of Canada’s most successful punk-pop acts, featuring a lineup comprised of former high school pals Pierre Bouvier (vocals), Jeff Stinco (guitar), David Desrosiers (bass), Sebastien Lefebvre (guitar), and Chuck Comeau (drums). The band quickly hit the road and joined the annual Vans Warped Tour. By this point, Simple Plan had carved out a spunky, energetic punk sound, textured like Cheap Trick but raw like Pennywise.  Soon Simple Plan headed into the studio to capture the sound on tape. Good Charlotte’s Joel Madden and Mark Hoppus of blink-182 joined Simple Plan during those sessions, and the end result was the fiery, fun No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls, which was released on Lava Records. The group took home a MuchMusic Video Award for People’s Choice Favorite Canadian Group and the album became a genuine success, selling over four million copies worldwide while going double-platinum in Canada and America.

The Pretenders

Fillmore Miami Beach

Though currently on tour opening for Stevie Nicks, The Pretenders are making a rare headlining appearance at the Fillmore Miami Beach.  While the group eventually became a vehicle for guitarist/vocalist Chrissie Hynde’s songwriting, it was a full-fledged band when it was formed in the late ’70s. With their initial records, the group crossed the bridge between punk/new wave and Top 40 pop more than any other band, recording a series of hard, spiky singles that were also melodic and immediately accessible. Hynde soared as an invigorating, sexy singer who bent the traditional male roles of rock & roll to her own liking.  Over the years and in many incarnations The Pretenders became a more straightforward rock band, yet Hynde’s semi-autobiographical songwriting and bracing determination meant that the group never became just another rock band.  From the seminal hits such as “Brass In Pocket,” Back On The Chain Gang,” “Middle Of The Road” and more to their latest album, Alone, The Pretenders will rock your world!

An American Tail

Coral Gables Art Cinema

Produced by Steven Spielberg, An American Tail is the delightful animated musical adventure that tells the story of Fievel Mousekewitz, a young Russian mouse migrating to America. When Fievel is separated from his family, he quickly learns that he must take charge of his own fate because the mean streets of New York City are fraught with cats, rats, perils and friendships. The film’s theme song, “Somewhere Out There,” received a number of accolades, including Grammy’s for Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture, Song of the Year, and an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song.

Dinosaur Jr.

Culture Room

Dinosaur Jr. is now widely recognized as one of the most significant American rock bands of all time; the sound they pioneered in the late-80s having permeated through the past 20 years. Preceding Nirvana by several years, they were instrumental in bringing the crashing sounds of lead guitar back to indie rock. It wasn’t just their signature metallic haze that made an impression on listeners; their effects-laden guitars were wrapped around some of the best songwriting of the decade. The first three albums — Dinosaur, You’re Living All Over Me and Bug — were cult masterpieces and when the original line up of Mascis, Barlow and drummer Murph re-formed in 2005 for select live dates it was apparent that the years apart had not eroded any of their vitality. In fact, many critics claimed their shows were even better than they used to be. It was natural, then, that the band would begin to work on new material.

Despicable Me in 3D

Coral Gables Art Cinema

Evil-mastermind Gru undertakes the greatest heist of all time: stealing the moon right out of the Earth’s sky! To accomplish this feat, Gru adopts three orphaned girls as his unwitting accomplices, but their kindness soon melts his icy heart and he begins doubting the importance of his single-minded goal to be the most diabolical thief that ever lived. Despicable Me introduced the world to the adorable minions, an endless array of diminutive yellow assistants who have since become an ubiquitous part of pop culture. Featuring the voices of Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Julie Andrews, Will Arnett and Kristen Wiig, Despicable Me was an instant classic and remains an audience favorite.

An Evening with David Sedaris

Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts

Join David Sedaris for an evening featuring all-new stories and observations with several sneak previews into work that will be published in his newest collection of writing in 2017, as well as an audience Q&A.

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, Mr Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

Neil Diamond

BB&T Center

Live Nation announced today that music icon, Grammy Award winner and Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Member, Neil Diamond, will celebrate his unparalleled career spanning 50 years with a world tour.  The 50 Year Anniversary World Tour, produced by Live Nation, will begin April 7 in Fresno, CA and will visit cities across North America including New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, Vancouver, Tampa  and more as the incomparable artist performs songs from his iconic discography.  North American tour dates are listed below.

Umphrey’s McGee

Fillmore Miami Beach

Jamband sensations Umphrey’s McGee brings its unique sound to the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater Friday, Aprilk 28th, 2017 / 8PM in a most intimate performance.  Big Something opens the show.  Tickets go on sale starting on Friday, January 13th / 10AM.

Umphrey’s McGee’s constantly evolving sound channels a wide spectrum of influences while still preserving their distinct voice through crafty songwriting. With a massive repertoire of originals and note-perfect covers, their live shows are like flipping through the presets on your radio dial. Their A.D.D. approach to “progressive improvisation” utilizes a set of Zappa inspired hand signals allowing them to orchestrate their melodic creations on the fly.


Red Hot Chili Peppers & Baby Metal

American Airlines Arena

Funk rock legends Red Hot Chili Peppers will be coming to Miami after the release of their eleventh studio album with Japanese metal idols Babymetal! The show will be at AAA Arena on April 29th, 2017. Tickets on sale now!

The Damned

Revolution Live

Cited as one of the most influential punk groups of all time, The Damned (Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible, Monty Oxymoron, Pinch, and Stu West) contributed vastly to the gothic rock genre and influenced an entire generation of future hardcore punk bands with their fast paced energetic playing style and attitude. Along with the Sex Pistols and The Clash, they helped spearhead the punk movement in the UK. Now, four decades and ten albums later and still on the road, they continue to wave the flag for originality, stick two fingers up to mediocrity and celebrate a punk ethos in the face of plastic entertainment and scripted reality. The Damned are planning to record a brand new album, their first since 2008’s So, Who’s Paranoid?, for release in 2017 and this tour will be in support of this new effort.

The Head and the Heart

Fillmore Miami Beach

The Head and The Heart, brings their “Signs of Light” Tour to the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater Thursday, May 18th, 2017 / 8PM in a rare and most intimate performance.  Tickets go on sale starting on Friday, February 10th / 10AM.

The Head And The Heart’s 2011 self-titled debut album captured a nascent but undeniable creative partnership between six strangers thrown together by little more than a shared love of music. It became one of Sub Pop Records’ best-selling debut releases ever, and rocketed the band to acclaim well beyond its then-home base in Seattle. After taking time off from massive touring, The Head And The Heart regrouped last summer in Stinson Beach, Ca., to start writing together again, “it almost felt like we were a new band, trying things we hadn’t tried,” bassist Chris Zasche recalls. “We stayed at a bungalow on the beach. We’d wake up, have coffee and go boogie boarding. We were ready and excited to be back together.  That renewed sense of purpose can be felt throughout Signs Of Light,” the group’s latest release. “This album isn’t about us now having achieved our dreams,” says vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Charity Rose Thielen. “This is the album where we really fell into our true voices as those artists.”  Signs Of Light crackles with the upbeat, sing-a-long energy of The Head And The Heart’s finest work. Throughout, the colors are brighter, the electric guitars are louder and the musical touchstones more universal. It is a timeless-sounding album that could have been beamed straight out of an old jukebox.
