CAETANO VELOSO IN CONCERT: THE ABRACACO TOUR
Saturday, September 13 at 8 p.m.

Brazilian legend Caetano Veloso will bring his Banda Cê to Miami for the Abraçaço tour, closing out a phenomenal triology of modern music. Caetano Veloso’s album Abraçaço, which means “big hug” in Portuguese, was released in North America earlier this year, following major accolades and success in South America. It won a Latin Grammy for Best Singer-Songwriter Album, and earned the #1 spot on Rolling Stone Brazil’s Best Albums list. Veloso is among the most influential and beloved artists to emerge from Brazil, where he began his musical career in the 1960s. Absorbing musical and aesthetic ideas from sources as diverse as The Beatles, concrete poetry, the French Dadaists, and the Brazilian modernist poets of the 1920s, Veloso, together with Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Tom Zé, his sister Maria Bethânia and a number of other intellectuals, founded the Tropicália movement and permanently altered the course of his country’s popular music. Presented by the Rhythm Foundation, tickets are $38.50, $48.50, $58.50 and $78.50 and can be purchased online or by phone.

2ND ANNUAL ROCK 'N RUN "THINK PINK FEEL TEAL" 5 K
Sunday, October 12 at 7:30 a.m.

The 2nd Annual Rock 'N Run "Think Pink Feel Teal" 5 K will be an incredible day of health, strength and spirit, featuring a challenging and fun 5K Orange Theory Fitness Run/Walk and a “rockin” cardio-blasting dance class with Videosync’s legendary Jay Marcos. Rock 'N Run was created to unite the South Florida community in the fight against breast and ovarian cancer and raise awareness to enhance prevention and early detection. Last year, at the first ever "Rock 'N Run" event, the community rallied for this cause and raised over $40,000 to support research, awareness and support for women in our community. This year, Rock 'N Run will support the same recipient charities: University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center's Cancer Link, Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, Women's Breast Health Initiative, Sandy B. Muller Breast Cancer Foundation, Sharsheret and FORCE. The organizers of this amazing initiative are breast and ovarian cancer survivors and friends and family of survivors. Early registration is $20 and day-of-registration is $25.
