by

Tyla Yaweh

Hitting big with the SkiMask collab "Hot Boyz" earlier this year, the young Hollywood (via Central Florida) MC has followed it up with this year's No Name EP. Momentum is his.

7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 30, at Backbooth, $10

The Fixx

U.K. new wave hit machine known best for "One Thing Leads to Another" and "Saved by Zero" plays an intimate Velvet Sessions show.

6:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 31, at Hard Rock Hotel, $33-$60

Desolated

Shattering beatdown hardcore quintet plays their last Florida show on their last U.S. tour ... so things might get just a tad rowdy.

6:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 1, at Backbooth, $15

Mavado

Dancehall mastermind and the man behind the 2008 Obama hype cut "We Need Barack" descends on Venue 578 with an overstuffed catalog of crucial reggae cuts.

10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 2, at Venue 578, $30-$115

Null-state

Who says everything in music has already been done? Avant-garde duo Null-state will unveil an actual new musical instrument at the show: the "Chaosflöte," a sensor-augmented flute.

7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 3, at Timucua White House, donations encouraged

Street Rat

Alan Vega of Suicide once said that it was the point of his band to bring the streets – the industrial, decaying, trash-strewn dread – to the audience. Miami's Street Rat is a proud inheritor of this mission.

9 p.m. Monday, Sept. 4, at the Falcon, $5

Plastic Pinks

The Miami invasion continues apace with garage rock lunatics Plastic Pinks kicking up a major fuss downtown.

8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 5, at 64 North, $5
