And who knows? The musically inclined weekly performer at Dada may be a headlining act one day. As part of the music scene here in South Florida, we actively support these aspiring stars in the best way we know how — by guzzling booze and yelling “right on” at the stage.

Five Things To Do Under $5 This Weekend

Ten Best Valentine’s Day Parties and Shows in Broward and Palm Beach

There’s no better time to profess or reconfirm your love with an obese teddy bear and a cardboard box of sickly sweet chocolates than on Valentine’s Day.

Astrea Corporation has long been lauded by New Times’ music writers. And you’ll get why this is once you’ve heard their songs and seen them live. Their fresh electronic feel is unforgettable. Layer Carly Astrea’s smooth vocals over Michael Bachman’s and Sander Davidson’s beats, and you’ve got some pretty sick tunes, brotha. After taking a quick break from playing locally, Astrea Corporation will be playing tomorrow at Dada with sound engineer and music producer Shark Anthony.
