WHO/WHAT:
This spring, in celebration of its 35 years as Miami’s leading purveyor of culture, Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) will introduce CURRENTS , a quarterly experiential concert series, presented by DEFY. In partnership with Juggerknot Theatre’s Miami Motel Stories, CURRENTS will deliver an intimate all-encompassing experience of art, theater, and music the likes of which have never echoed the halls of the museum. PAMM will become home to new-age eclectic performances with a progressive focus on Indie Rock, Electronica, and R&B. From PAMM’s stunning waterfront terrace, CURRENTS kicks off on Thursday, March 21 with Los Angeles-based, indie psychedelic band, Inner Wave —hailed by VICE as making "surreal", "moody psychedelia to ease your broken heart."

Inside the museum, Miami Motel Stories will give a flash theater experience drawn from Miami's past, present, and future. Presented by Juggerknot Theatre, written by Juan C. Sanchez, and directed by Tai Thompson, The Miami Motel Stories’ flash experience will depict dramatic and comedic tales driven by native characters that grab inspiration from an ever-changing cultural landscape.

WHEN:
The series starts Thursday, March 21 , from 7pm to 10pm, headlined by Inner Wave. The itinerary for CURRENTS is as follows:

  • DJ at Waterfront Terrace (7–9pm)
