A Horse Show on the Beach

Sure, you’ve got the Derby. But it’s a month away. And in Kentucky. Where there are a considerable lack of beaches. So the ponies are coming to you with an equestrian competition on SoBe. There’ll be pomp, pageantry, sand in unmentionable places—the whole bit. You’ll be fine.

PRESCRIPTION STRENGTH

And Suddenly, You’re Feeling Sick...

Tough time to be feeling “sick.” That “sore throat” of yours could use some soothing. Good thing Albert Trummer’s on hand to write you a “prescription” for that.

Orchestral Daft Punk. About Time.

Ever listen to Daft Punk and think, “This would sound so much better on the flute”? If so, good news: there’s a new chamber orchestra putting classical touches on pop stuff. Their first concert is Saturday, followed by an after-party with a performance by Afrobeta. Doing Daft Punk. Not really.
