Thanksgiving weekend traditionally means a healthy dose of turkey with all the fixings, family and all the drama they bring, and the ever notorious Black Friday, as famous for its shopping deals as the massive crowds those deals bring to the malls. For some, that first crisp breath of fall air brings an eager anticipation for the holiday season. For the rest of us normal people, January 2 nd couldn’t come fast enough. This year Miami is bringing us something to be thankful for other than the 6 a.m. door busters at Wal-Mart. The Bang Music Festival hits Miami’s Bicentennial Park on Saturday, November 26 th and brings over 50 DJs to five different stages all celebrating the holiday, the weather, and hell, the music. This year’s event features performances by the notorious Fischerspooner, newcomers Brazilian Girls, industrial legends Front 242, Kentucy electro band VHS or Beta, plus sets from ATB, Bad Boy Bill, Benny Benassi, Chicks on Speed, and a wealth of others. Having developed a cult following in New York with their outlandish stage shows, electronica duo Fischerspooner went international with their 2003 album, #1. This year they released their second disc, Odyssey, featuring collaborations from Jacques Lu Cont, Mirwais, Mark “Spike” Stent, and Linda Perry. It’s amped with even more tracks ripe for performative interpretation. Brazilian Girls are not actually all girls, but a four piece band with a female singer, all from New York, who appreciate Bossa Nova as much as they do their ProTools. They’re the band everyone in the industry has been buzzing about for a year being the “next big thing,” so I’m sure they don’t feel any pressure at all when they do a huge festival like this one. With a name derived from architectural influences, Front 242 grabbed a solid foothold within the electronic music world by using the most up to date technology to keep the music fresh since 1981. Andre Tanneberger (the man and namesake behind ATB) has combined ambient and trance music over the course of 11 years and five ATB albums. But Bang isn’t just about the DJs. VHS or BETA, the four piece band originally hailing from Louisville Kentucky, bring their interpretation of dance meets rock to the crowds proving that music knows no bounds and that there are 80s inspired dance rock bands other than The Killers. Whatever your reason, make sure to drag yourself out to Bicentennial Park for the Bang Music Festival. No one really enjoys being cooped up with family all weekend, and any South Florida native knows the best time to be outside in Florida is during the fall. So consider it a win-win situation.
