The Best Concerts in Miami This Week, November 6-12

Jay-Z’s 4:44 Tour finally makes it to Miami this Sunday. It is in support of his 13th — yes, 13th — album of the same name, which, like Magna Carta Holy Grail, wasn’t teased with any singles before release.

 

But then again, when you live the upper echelons of superstardom like Sean Carter, you don’t have to bother with singles.

While you wait for Jay-Z, this week is packed with plenty of music. Iron & Wine returns to his old South Florida stomping grounds Monday at Culture Room. Alt-J hits the stage at the Fillmore Miami Beach Friday. House of Creatives brings the music festival vibe to Virginia Key with MGMT, Metronomy, Washed Out, and a repeat performance by Alt-J. And Ben Folds holds court at the opulently decorated Olympia Theater on Sunday.

First Annual Imaginary Radio Music & Arts Festival Honors Miami's Scene

by Robb is on a mission to make a music festival that celebrates local bands — whether they’re from Miami or local to somewhere else. On November 18, Robb will inaugurate his first annual Imaginary Radio Music & Arts Festival at Gramps.

The festival is a project by the Imaginary Radio Network, a “radiocast” created and hosted by Robb. The radio-show-podcast hybrid, which now has completed more than 200 episodes, began in 2015 when Robb and co-hosts Rob the Rum Guy (a rum connoisseur) and Captain Dapper (“just strange”) had the idea to create an old-school variety-show-style program in which they discuss topics including weird news, Florida Man stories, science, and what they call “geek stuff” in movies and television.

Each episode features music from unsigned local bands. Originally, “local” naturally meant Miami, where Robb and company were all born and raised, But over time, they included local bands from Spain, the United Kingdom, Australia, and more. “Before we knew it, we were getting music sent to us from all over the country and all over the world,” says Robb, deeming his creation an “international local music show.”

While Robb holds no grudges against Miami’s dominant electronic scene, he confesses that he and his co-hosts prefer “music with real instruments.” After his show exploded as a place for local bands to showcase their music, Robb decided to create an annual festival to celebrate the local scenes that “gave them so much.”

 

“One thing that people from Miami — and not from Miami — miss is an organic music scene here that’s like no other place,” he says, refuting the common misperception that Miami doesn’t have a “real” music scene. “We have a lot of really unique bands, and they blend a lot of strange elements into their stuff. We want people to see that.”

This year’s festival will feature Miami gems like Afrobeta, Above the Skyline, Boxwood, Dama Vicke, Raker, Snowmoon,The Hoy Polloy, The Deadly Blank, Xotic Yeyo, and Pans on both Gramps stages. The festival will also showcase the work of local visual artists that contribute to Miami’s underground scene.

Robb, who spent nearly 10 years as a DJ for Tallahassee’s alternative station X101.5 curating unsigned local music on the air, has long been a friend to local and DIY scenes. “I was doing my regular radio shift in Tallahassee,” Robb recalls, “and I guess people were just in a good mood; a lot of people were calling me and were being very outgoing, like, ‘Hey my friend, what’s up?’ And I was like, I don’t know these people. I got a wild hair to start calling myself your imaginary friend on the air.” The Imaginary brand stuck.

Your imaginary friend has hopes for the festival’s future as a patron of Miami’s music scene. He emphasizes that proceeds from tickets will not go to him or his co-hosts, but to the bands. “This is something we’re not making money off of because we want to give back to the bands that have helped us out,” says Robb. “We want to bring people in [to] have a good time and get a sense of how great the Miami music scene actually is.”
