On Tuesday, February 4th I attended the first ‘Local Love Tuesdays’ event at Club Play on Miami Beach hosted by two very humble and hardworking young ladies Pretty Money and Tip Drill. Local Love is a platform for all unsigned artist to showcase their talent while networking. I have been anticipating this event since I first came across the flyer online back in January. As a new face on the Miami music scene, these events are exactly what I need. The music was on point throughout the entire night. Shout out to 103.5 The Beat DJ EPPS and Home Team DJ Lucky C, they kept the party jumping all night. I attended the event expecting performances by only 3 artist Money King, Bri Beauty, and Lil Dred but was surprised and excited when the stage was opened up to a couple more artist who were in the building. Each and every artist who hit the stage did their thing. Though I was familiar with some of the artist hitting the stage it was my first time seeing any of them perform. It was great networking with different people, and supporting our local talent. Everybody was so humble and ready to work, it reminded me exactly why I began blogging. I left Club Play that night knowing I’ll be back again on the 18th. Local Love is exactly what Miami needs. There has been an ongoing dispute on why the underground music scene in Miami is so segregated. I really believe this can change that. If the artist, DJs, bloggers, etc do their job and network we as a whole can put Miami back on the map, create stronger relationships with each other and get this incredible talent heard and seen. I salute Pretty Money and Tip Drill for putting together such an epic event and giving everybody a chance to follow their dreams and get heard. This is the first step to uniting the Miami music scene. I advise all unsigned artist to email a head shot and track to LocalLoveMiami@gmail.com and attend Club Play every 1st and 3rd Tuesday. Let’s work! You never know who may be in the crowd.
