Embark on a journey through Edith Piaf’s life with her most beloved songs. Experience how a frail woman who started making a living singing in the streets of working-class Paris went on to become a musical legend.
Piaf, an extraordinary theatrical work, has been hailed by critics across Latin America and now makes its North American premiere at the Colony Theatre.
Piaf’s voice and melodies are instantly recognizable, making it a tremendous challenge for any actress to transform into the role. Mariaca Semprún, known as the “Queen of Musicals” in Venezuela, is up to the challenge. Semprún digs deep to channel her inner genius and pays a gorgeous tribute to Piaf’s voice, art and legacy as she physically and emotionally transform into the legendary singer. Leonardo Padrón, one of Venezuela’s most respected writers, has woven Piaf’s music into a captivating story.
If interested in additional performances in Spanish, shows are available July 20 – July 30 (Thursdays – Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 3pm)

The legendary co-founder of the super group Steely Dan, Donald Fagen, comes to the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater on Tuesday, August 8th, 2017 / 8PM for a special intimate performance. Tickets go on sale starting on Friday, April 28th / 10am.
Donald Fagen is one of the two masterminds behind the legendary jazz-pop band Steely Dan. Along with his longtime friend Walter Becker, they created a string of hits including “Aja,” “FM,” “Reelin In The Years,” “Deacon Blues” and many more. His solo work has been a continuation of the band’s personna — carefully constructed and arranged, intricately detailed pop songs that are more substantial than their stylish surface may indicate. His solo debut, The Nightfly, was considered one of the best albums he had ever made; it covered the same ground as the previous Steely Dan albums, yet surpassed them in terms of ambition and achievement. It was certified platinum for sales of over a million copies in the U.S. and reached 11 on the Billboard Top 200 albums list. It was also nominated for the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. Becker produced Fagen’s second album, Kamakiriad, which was nominated for the Grammy Award for Album of the Year and reached number 10 on the Top 200 albums chart. Fagen has produced two additional well-received solo albums as well as publishing an autobiography titled Eminent Hipsters. He and Becker still continue to tour frequently as Steely Dan.
If you sit and talk to many of the alternative rock artists dominating today’s music, you’ll find that many of them pay homage t The Psychedelic Furs. Led by front man and songwriter Richard Butler, the Furs won over fans and critics alike by combining poetic lyrics, innovative rhythms and melodies driven by an aggressive, punk desperation. Through it all, the band scored major hits with “Love My Way,” “Pretty In Pink,” “Heaven,” “The Ghost In You,” and “Heartbreak Beat” in all releasing seven studio albums and spawning several compilations, a boxed set, and a live concert DVD.
The Psychedelic Furs join us in Fort Lauderdale at Culture Room on August 9th as part of their 2017 national tour.

Social Distortion has stayed strong for three decades on their own terms, on their own time, by their own rules, and over that time their influence has only grown. Each of their albums has been stronger than their last. They’ve been brought onstage by Bruce Springsteen, because he wanted to play one of their songs. They’ve seen high times and low ones, good days and tragic days, but every night they give 100%, and every morning they wake up still swinging.

Crafting an idiosyncratic blend of pop influenced as much by ’80s pop as by contemporary EDM and coupled with raw, brutally honest lyrics, Tove Lo made a name for herself as an award-winning performer and Grammy-nominated songwriter. Born in a suburb of Stockholm, she began writing poetry and short stories at a young age. She went on to study at the famous Rytmus Musikergymnasiet where she befriended the future members of Icona Pop. She decided to focus on her own songs, spending six months in her shed studio working on a demo. At a party celebrating Icona Pop’s first record deal, she used the opportunity to foist her demo on a staff member at their label, leading to a publishing deal with Warner Chappell and a trip to L.A. to work with fellow Swede and pop songwriting/production supremo Max Martin.
Depeche Mode joins us in Miami for one night at the American Airlines Arena for their Global Spirit Tour. They are supported by special guest Warpaint.
From beginnings in Basildon, Essex, to the Universe, Depeche Mode has been creating their brand of music for over 30 years. The band has been recognized as making a significant impact on the development of various popular music genres, including heavy metal, techno, and indie rock, leading to many artists citing them as an inspiration. Come out to experience the band that brought you hits like “Just Can’t Get Enough,” “Enjoy the Silence,” & “Personal Jesus”.
Washington punk-rock band, (the) Melvins, make their way to the Culture Room on September 17th as part of their 2017 summer tour. Following the release of their new album, “A Walk With Love and Death”, the band will be performing in Fort Lauderdale with support from Spotlights.
Forming in 1983 out of Montesano, Washington, (the) Melvins are seasoned veterans to the punk rock scene. With hits like “Honey Bucket” and “Hooch”, the band has created somewhat of a cult following. Within the rock community, the band’s music is held in high esteem in regards to the development of both the grunge and sludge metal movements.
The world of symphonic metal is all about big ideas and high standards, but few bands have taken this most bombastic of genres to such momentous creative heights as EPICA. Formed in the Netherlands, these perennially dynamic masters of sonic opulence swiftly grabbed the world’s attention with their debut album, The Phantom Agony. With a fresh and vital sound that struck a sublime balance between orchestral grandeur and pure heavy metal grit, EPICA’s music has continued to showcase the compelling contrast between singer, Simone Simons’s soaring vocals and guitarist, Mark Jansen’s guttural growls; between Isaac Delahaye’s unstoppable core of scything riffs and keyboard maestro, Coen Janssen’s intricate, hugely cinematic arrangements and embellishments. All of this backed by a powerful tandem: Ariën van Weesenbeek blasting his drums and Rob van der Loo providing tasteful low end. The lyrics, too, made EPICA stand out from the crowd, as they eschewed the traditional symphonic trope of fantasy and began to explore and dissect notions of philosophy, science and spirituality. This Dutch sextet are widely regarded as the genre’s brightest hope and international success is in their grasp.

“gleaming, graceful, slightly gritty and distinctly modern.”—The Wall Street Journal
“an entertainer, whose music blends jazz, funk, R&B and whatever else will get the crowd jumping and shouting…
play it loud enough and questions of genre will fly away on the breeze from Andrews’ horn.”—Stereogum
“Parking Lot Symphony continues Trombone Shorty’s personal tradition of stunningly good musicianship, crowd-pleasing good material and just plain good fun… Andrews keeps the music close to his heart and his hometown.”—OffBeat
Falling somewhere between rock, jazz and electronic mayhem we find space rock. This is a genre that is not readily defined and is a state of mind as much as it could be considered a genre. This range of frequencies is where Papadosio tends to spend their time, sometimes dining in deep space, and other times snacking right on your front porch. Papadosio strives to create music that is strangely familiar and calls all walks of humanity to bask in a unique experience celebrating the one constant in an ever-changing world: music. Join Papadosio in an effort to create, augment, and rejoice in the universal language of music. Most importantly, have a good time.
New Orlean’s powerhouse, Trombone Shorty, joins us in Fort Lauderdale at Revolution Live for two nights of funk on September 29th &30th. Joined by his band Orleans Avenue. Opening for them will be Dumpstaphunk.
Troy ‘Trombone Shorty’ Andrews has God-given talent, natural charisma and a relentless drive to bridge music’s past and future. His third outing for Verve Records, Say That To Say This (Sept. 10), co-produced by Andrews and kindred spirit Raphael Saadiq, sounds like nothing else out there, as Andrews and his longtime band, Orleans Avenue – guitarist Pete Murano, bassist Mike Ballard and drummer Joey Peebles – continue their natural musical evolution. In a very real sense, the torch is passed from one great New Orleans band to another on the new album, which features the first new studio recording from the original members of the legendary Meters in 36 years, as they revisit their 1977 classic “Be My Lady,” with Andrews singing lead and playing horns.

he Magpie Salute is an exciting new band that features musicians who have played together for decades throughout various projects and share a musical bond. The band brings Rich Robinson, the guitarist and co-founding member of The Black Crowes, together with two key members of Crowes fame – guitarist Marc Ford and bassist Sven Pipien – alongside drummer Joe Magistro and guitarist Nico Bereciartua. The Magpie Salute marks the reunion of the Robinson and Ford guitar team which ended back in 1997 when Ford left The Black Crowes. The band also boasts a fine cast of vocalists, including lead singer John Hogg (Hookah Brown, Moke), former Crowes singer Charity White and background singers, Adrien Reju and Katrine Ottosen. The term “Magpie Salute” references a British superstition about the imperative to salute a Magpie anytime you see one in order to ward off negativity, or to have a good day. Clearly, The Magpie Salute intends to mix it up, breathing new life into musical bonds, rooted in tradition and the universal language of Rock and Roll.
From Paris to Cuba and all points in between, Ibeyi created a global sensation with their debut in 2015. How does one follow up on a groundbreaker? The young artists immersed themselves in their Afro-Cuban roots, and collaborated with musical luminaries. They return to the US this fall, including a date Saturday October 28th at the North Beach Bandshell in Miami Beach.
Ibeyi is 22-year-old French-Cuban twins Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz. Since the release of their critically-acclaimed, self-titled debut album, Ibeyi have been captivating audiences across the globe with their unique blend of modern pop, hip-hop and electronic influenced with the traditional sounds of Yorùbá. At the end of 2016 the adoration of their debut album revealed itself through requests for the twins to open the Chanel Cruise fashion show in Cuba, an appearance in Beyoncé’s video for Lemonade, and Maura Bigonzetti’s ‘Deep,’ a performance choreographed to music by Ibeyi for Alvin Ailey’s Dance Theatre
Band of Horses is an American rock band formed in 2004 in Seattle by Ben Bridwell. The band has released five studio albums, the most successful of which is 2010’s Grammy-nominated Infinite Arms. The band’s lineup, which included Mat Brooke for the debut album, has undergone several changes; the most-recent lineup of Bridwell, Ryan Monroe, Tyler Ramsey, Bill Reynolds, and Creighton Barrett, had been together for several years until Ramsey and Reynolds’ departure in 2017, recording three albums. Band of Horses’ fifth studio album, Why Are You OK, was released in June 2016.
When Grizzly Bear came to the end of the road with their fourth album, 2012’s Shields, the future was unclear. No dramatic decisions were made, no arguments were had, but there was a feeling as there always is with the foursome that a breather was required. The band who emerged in 2004 in Brooklyn, New York, have forever functioned as a self-described “democracy”. It’s equal and it’s fair but it can also take a lot of out of them. And so they went their separate ways and bedded down in different corners. But they couldn’t stay away. The resulting fifth Grizzly Bear album Painted Ruins benefits from having the songs develop in a completely organic way. That relief, that momentum, that sense of a band really relishing the chance to relocate their mojo is apparent on the album, which wound up taking two years to make.
Open seven days a week:
