Miami Weekend Guide: The Avett Brothers, The B-52s, Art Walk, And Here & Now Festival

02/10/2012 12:38 pm ET

Although it feels a little August-y outside, it's still "winter" in Miami so the arts season is in full swing.

This weekend's art walk will be particularly robust with new shows, and you can see local performance talent at the Here & Now Festival.

The more adventurous can get married by Elvis or get messy with tomato guts, both events go down at Tobacco Road.

Here's hoping the gray clouds part just enough to let a little weekend fun in.
