Happy Friday! If you’re as ready as we are for the weekend, you’re in luck. Here, in the middle of June, we have lots going on in Miami that won’t leave you bored in the least. No matter what you’re into, there’s something for everyone this weekend, especially for dads. Waste no time and get your weekend started off right tonight, and continue the fun through Sunday. There’s concerts, anniversary celebrations, and finger-lickin’ deliciousness. Get ready to have an awesome weekend!

Dragonette at Grand Central

It’s Friday night, and Canadian electronic band Dragonette is in town. They’re performing live at Grand Central tonight, which was just recently voted by Miami New Times as the Best Live Music Venue, so you know it’s going to be good. Usually when they come into town, it’s to do two or three songs at a club. But this time, fans are in for a treat with a full-on live show with the release of their recent album, Body Parts. The opening act is Nightbox and you can still get tickets here.

Capital Cities at Bardot

Another great live music act in store for Friday night is Capital Cities at Bardot. The indie pop band is returning for the first time since Ultra Music Festival in March to give an intimate show at the Midtown venue. Miami’s music enthusiasts are definitely not in a shortage of things to do this weekend, and are even faced with a bit of a dilemma. Either way, it’s bound to be a musically-inclined Friday night.

MAM Closing Party

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Miami, FL – June 1, 2013 – After more than 15 years of enhancing Miami’s cultural repertoire, Miami Art Museum closed its doors at Miami-Dade Cultural Center in preparation for its move to the new, state-of-the-art facility in Museum Park. This monumentous occasion called for a proper farewell with a full-blown community barbecue. On the eve of the museum’s final day, the memorable “Lights Out” BBQ was the last public event to be held at Miami Art Museum’s current facility on Cultural Center Plaza. Hundreds of people came out and enjoyed bites by Sparky’s Roadside BBQ and DJs from HOT 97.7FM, who played music through a 17-foot wall of speakers. The closing party was coordinated in collaboration with the nomadic artist project the end in conjunction with New Work Miami 2013, which, along with Frames of Reference: Latin American Art from the Jorge M. Perez Collection, was on view throughout the evening and included a giant light switch for the “Lights Out” theme. Miami Art Museum will reopen as Pérez Art Museum Miami in Downtown Miami’s Museum Park in December 2013.

Pharrell Williams at the Design Miami Preview & Vernissage on December 4, 2012

If you’re like the rest of Miami, you probably don’t know what you’re doing yet this weekend. Lucky for you, it’s Friday and we’ve got your line-up of what to do right here with our brand spankin’ new weekend guide. On every Friday, World Red Eye will be bringing you a specially selected list of the hottest things going on for the weekend. Some of them are things we’ll also be at, covering all the action, and some of them we won’t be at but still think they’re going to be awesome. There’s so much constantly going on in Miami- in every area from DJs and musical acts to the arts and dining scene.

We’re taking all the work out of it for you, and simplifying it down to this very essential list of things you need to check out. Maybe you can’t make all of them, but at least you know what’s going on and can pick one or two.

Just because the madness of March is over, doesn’t mean there’s a shortage of things to do by any means. Starting tonight through Sunday, we’ve got four awesome things for you to do. From celebrities and daytime barbecuing to bottle popping and a little R&R, there’s something for everyone. Rejoice, Miami, because it’s Friday and there’s a whole weekend ahead of us to enjoy with these top four things to do.
