Staff Picks: Alternative Rock and Apeiro

Atlas Genius, Banners and the Crush


Picked by John Thomason, Managing Editor

“We in the Boca Mag office are big fans of The Shark 104.3, South Florida’s long-overdue alternative rock station. And we’re happy to report that the station is already promoting events with cutting-edge bands that wouldn’t otherwise grace our shores. This Saturday night at the Broward Center, the Shark is sponsoring a concert with Atlas Genius, a synth-driven alt-dance act hailing all the way from South Australia. The groovy duo, which is celebrating its new sophomore album “Inanimate Objects,” will be joined by Banners, a rising U.K. band that has cornered the market on Coldplay-style plaintive pop ballads; and South Florida’s own dance-rockers, the Crush. Tickets cost $37.50-$60, and the venue is located at 201 S.W. Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Call 954/462-0222, or visit”

“I absolutely loved my recent dining experience at Apeiro located at Delray Marketplace! The popular Apeiro Spreads that includes hummus, eggplant caponata and pistachio yogurt is all so yummy served with their warm and puffy freshly baked pita. The Tuna Tartare was extremely fresh and tasty and the Grilled Spanish Octopus is one of the best octopus dishes I’ve ever had! The Roasted Branzino was cooked to perfection and the creative specialty cocktails will keep you infinitely blissful. I’m excited to return to try their weekend brunch, which includes 10 items for only $10, plus other brunch specialties! If you love fresh Mediterranean food, you will fall in love with Apeiro.”
