Tomorrow night Miami party promoters join forces with hot-shit DJ’s and a San Francisco based photography magazine to create an art and Winter Music Conference hybrid monster. “U DON’T LIKE ME, I DON’T LIKE U” is a show put together by Vice Versa – aka Miami’s event co-coordination aficionado Xavier Burt. Forming what is described in the events promotional material as an ‘influential collective’ “U HATE ME, I HATE U” in addition to Vice Versa will comprise of 4 record labels (Mad Decent, TurnTableLab, Iheartcomix, and Trouble&Bass), and Hamburger Eyes (a photo Magazine bed in San Francisco).

The main theme in the blood line here is that the show was developed out of pure interest in adding some kind of last minute substance to Miami’s largely tactless Winter Music Conference (March 24th – 28th). For the past 2 years Vice Versa has collaborated with Mad Decent, TurnTableLab to put on this party but according to Vice Versa’s Xavier Burt “the venue has always sucked the life out of the idea but this year everything is FREE, everything is ACCESSIBLE, and this will be a great [hopefully unencumbered] gathering of all kinds of fun faces from around the world.” Burt continues “It’s always fun to see who makes it out during WMC especially as we tread further and further into the ghetto.”

In the O.H.W.O.W gallery the Hamburger Eyes crew will present an exhibition of large format black and white photography spotlighting Brian David Stevens, Michael Jang, David Potes, Patrick Griffin, Mark Murrmann, Stsimikich, Ray Potes, Ryan Furtado, Vic Blue, Alexander Martinez, Oscar Mendoza, Alessandro Zuek Simonetti, Ted Pushinsky, Uri Korn in addition to distributing their quarterly photo zine, Hamburger Eyes. Also in the gallery the all Vinyl DJ’s from TurnTableLab will be keeping it sexy.

Over in the O.H.W.O.W warehouse there will be a huge old skool music showcase of almost all DJ’s – the line up on the flyer details some of the biggest names in the game today (Diplo, Switch, Sega, Rusko (UK), South Rakkas Crew, Party Squad (Amsterdam), Toy Selectah, Spank Rock, Da Hardy Boys, Roctakon, DJ Eli Escobar, Blu Jemz, Unemployed Lloyd, sTERRYo, Drop The Lime, The Captain, Star Eyes, Franki Chan, Acid Girls, Toxic Avenger and Designer Drugs). In addition to employing an epic sound system, light show & other visuals, this exhibition flies in the face of recent criticism regarding an increasingly party orientated Wynwood Art District as the organizers here will be providing as much alcohol as is required for this event to reach maximum insanity.
