As part of our continuing coverage running up to the beginning of Miami’s premiere music and art festival, UR1, we’re giving you the inside look on some of the groundbreaking musical acts and artists that will be filling the streets of Miami for the yearly Art Basel. Truly a revolutionary week for art, music, and all of Miami, you don’t wanna miss out! Today we’re taking at look at one of Punk music’s most renowned acts, The Offspring, and an artist whose edgy art pushes boundaries, AHOL Sniffs Glue.
There’s no denying that punk rock lived beyond the Sex Pistols. As the torch got passed down from the UK to SoCal, the Offspring was at the forefront. Along with their fellow rockers, Green Day, Rancid, and Bad Religion, the Offspring took punk mainstream with their hit singles “Come Out and Play” and “Gotta Get Away”. Everyone who grew up in the 90s recognizes The Offspring’s classic punk sounds, their album Americana featuring the hits “Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)” and “Why Don’t You Get a Job” practically defined adolescence for many of us. And with their newest album, Days Go By, the band is back and ready to conquer.
Be there when The Offspring take the stage at UR1 and rock Miami and show the world that Punk isn’t dead!
AHOL – call it how you see it, but there’s no denying his many epic, jaw-dropping urban murals that have captured the imagination of any city dweller in South Florida. AHOL is a phenomenon, hands down. With his raw intensity in creating his instantly recognizable street murals to his multiple site-specific installations that explore the everyday surroundings disguised with his undeniable sense of humor, AHOL’s work not only thrills but questions, leaving much for the viewer’s imagination.
