CHEAP EATS
"The Place" to Be

The votes are in on The Place and here is the rundown

SCENE : the bar is mostly occupied by college students and those from the younger side of the 20s spectrum, kicking back after a long day at the financial district. It's the perfect place to catch the game or as the night hits around 10pm hit the dancefloor and party the night away. If you like the atmosphere at a dive bar, this is a great scene.

MUSIC: During the day you can nod along to your fave classic rock songs, and then after 10pm you can yell requests at the DJ. The dancefloor is a little on the small side, however. The DJ spins Top 40, club mash-ups, and R&B hits after 10pm. PLUS all the flatscreens to catch sports! We also love the ineveitable seasonal theme nights on Wednesdays ! The bartenders get super festive!

Kanye West, Lou Reed to Headline UR1 in Miami

When early December descends upon us, yes we remember that the holidays are just around the corner, but music and art lovers alike have their own little holiday to anticipate: Miami Art Basel. In 2011, there was a record attendance of 50,000 (up from 40,000 just one year earlier) so it's clear that the annual exhibition is flourishing. The roster of music fueled events that hit Miami each year are adding up and it's no surprise that a new music festival is in the works to correspond with Art Basel. Alex Omes and Emi Guerra of GO BIG Productions are adding yet another musical force to their agenda with the introduction of the first annual UR1 Music Festival in Miami.

UR1 will take place on December 8 and 9, in Bayfront Park, Downtown Miami.

FUN. Live Up to Their Name at Terminal 5

“We Are Young” hit makers Fun. (which includes previous members of The Format) brought their energetic tour to Terminal 5 on Saturday, June 16 and it’s safe to say everyone in New York City heard the show. Or at least the crowd.

Fans of The Format are no stranger to lead singer Nate Ruess’ powerful voice, which transcended through arguably the nosiest crowd Terminal 5 has experienced. It’s apparent Nate was born for the stage, as he jumped and pranced his way around other Fun. members and floating balloons.

THE BAND AID
Indie Band to Watch: Our Name is Fun


Nate Ruess, Jack Antonoff, and Andrew Dost are FUN. Well, at least that’s what they boldly state as the name of their American indie pop band, blowing up radio stations nationwide.

With Ruess (formerly of The Format) as lead vocals, Antonoff (of Steel Train) on guitars, trumpet, and Dost’s (of Anathallo) contribution of vocals, piano, drums, keyboard, guitars, and of course the flugelhorn and glockenspiel. But of course. The band formed in the winter of 2008. Their album Aim and Ignite was released in 2009 on the label Nettwerk Records and Some Nights on Fueled by Ramen will be released this February 21.
