This weekend, you should start to see raver girls in furry boots and yarn dreads popping up all over town. The Winter Music Conference starts this weekend and peaks next weekend with Ultra.

As the fervor to Ultra builds, WMC parties start pulsing this weekend with DJ cruises, Vagabond shows, and the Shelbourne and other South Beach hotels turning into EDM party central.

For the non-untz fans, Odd Future's back in town. There are also two major art shows opening -- grunge painter Rita Ackermann at MOCA, and a visual and aural ode to vinyl at Miami Art Museum.

Partake in green beer this Saturday at one of Miami's several St. Patrick's Day bashes.

And if all else fails, there's always the rides and sugar-covered elephant ears at the Dade County Fair.
