  2. Swamptoberfest

    swamptoberfest

    The director of Swampspace, Oliver Sanchez announced today the nomination of the gallery by the Knight Foundation to their People’s Choice Award, South Florida. The announcement is a welcomed recognition for the maverick artist run project space located in the Miami Design District for nearly a decade.

    Swampspace is pleased to present an Open House that focus on the People’s Choice Award. Everyone is invited to our Campaign Opening on October 22nd. Swamptoberfest will be a spectacular celebration featuring special performances by Otto Von Schirach the untamable, Oscar Fuentes the Biscayne Poet, The Candidate by David Rohn and Adora, installations by Sleeper, Magnus Sodamin and other oddities courtesy of Miami’s most intriguing artists.

    Swampspace was founded on the premise that promoting artistic values increases civility among diverse groups that make up our greater community. It presents monthly exhibitions ranging from visual arts and sculpture to theatrical performance and musical interludes. With nearly fifty exhibitions and critical acclaim, Swampspace is now recognized to be a place both sophisticated enough for arbiters of taste and unvarnished enough for the iconoclast.

    The People’s Choice Award highlights small arts groups making a difference in South Florida. It’s part of the Knight Arts Challenge, a community-wide contest funding the best ideas for the arts. Winners of both the challenge and People’s Choice will be announced in December.

    People’s Choice voting begins October 20th and ends Nov 17.

    HITWeekweb

    “Unexpected sounds from Italy” is Italian HIT Week, an annual series of top jazz, pop and fusion artists. With a goal to showcase to the world that Italian music is more than Mafia movie soundtracks and mandolin, fresh Italian artists visit the US. This is the 4th edition of this series, which has introduced Miami fans to Italian legends like Subsonica, Negrita, Mannarino, Canzonieri Grecanico Salentino, Nicola Conte and others.

    Headline artist Caparezza has a unique sound that mixes hip hop with a dose of his hero Frank Zappa and the theatricality of opera. Heavy beats, crazy costumes, innovative wordplay that transcend language and one of Italy’s most engaging musical stars. The night also features young Italian group Kutso, Italian DJ and of course some Italian cuisine and wine to sample and enjoy.

    THE MAGICIAN
    U.S. Fall Tour 2014

    http://the-magician.com/

    http://facebook.com/themagicianmusic

    Tickets: http://ticketfly.com/event/677639

    The Magician is the alias of talented DJ/Producer, Stephen Fasano. One night not so long ago, he appeared from a place between space and time. Apparently he stepped into this world, materializing in a cloud of crystal stars and soft pink smoke. Some claim he’s a former airline pilot who crashed an afterparty – some say it’s all just an illusion, a well performed hoax.

    Previously a member of revered Balearic disco duo, Aeroplane, he disembarked that flight and boarded his own magical carpet ride in 2010. He released his debut single ‘I Don’t Know What To Do’ on Kitsune in 2011, then joined forces with Peter (aka Yuksek) for three furthers EPs (Twist , Memory and On My Brain). However, most fans will probably know of The Magician for his killer remixes. Especially his remix of Lykke Li’s “I Follow Rivers” in 2011 which has had over 45 Million views on Youtube and chart topping placings across Europe and his brand new remix of Clean Bandit ” Rather Be ” which is already played by all the best DJs and Radio all around the World.
