Kaki King at downtown Miami concert series on Nov. 11

The DWNTWN Miami Concert Series is back for another month of free musical performances by well-known and up-and-coming artists.

This month’s concert will feature Kaki King and  MillionYoung on Friday, Nov. 11 at 6 p.m. in Bayfront Park.

Kaki King is known for her percussive and jazz-tinged melodies and acoustic sound. In 2006, she made Rolling Stones’ list of “The New Guitar Gods.” Since then, she has released five albums and collaborated in making the soundtracks for films like Into the Wild, for which she received a Best Original Score Golden Globe nomination.

MillionYoung is an indie/electronica musical act from Florida.

The first bands to hit the stage in October were indie-rock band Surfer Blood, Spam Allstars' funky Latin fusion and the reggae group Ketchy Shuby.

The concerts run every second Friday of the month from October through April (except March).

The Miami Downtown Development Authority is charged with putting together the monthly events. The Miami DDA is an independent public agency of the City of Miami funded by property tax money coming from residents and businesses within its district boundaries. The organization is charged with improving the economy of downtown through different events and capital improvement projects.

Last year’s series included Miami singer/producer Kevin Rudolf and the South Florida Jazz Orchestra on its playlist.
