Nas, TV on the Radio, Sharon Jones: Schedule Revealed for Spotify's Art Basel Concert Series
Seven days ago, we here at Crossfade got word that Spotify and Midtown's Ricochet Lounge were putting together a four-day Art Basel Miami Beach concert series, dubbed Music Loves Art, starring Nas, Theophilus London, TV on the Radio, and Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings.
At the time, there weren't many details, except the names and the venue. So we've spent the last week listening -- non-fucking-stop -- to the free on-demand music service, seeking subliminal messages.
But when that means of reporting failed, we simply asked Spotify's PR people for a press release. And they promptly delivered, providing a full Music Loves Art show schedule, not to mention a final lineup addition -- Penguin Prison.
UPDATE Bad news: You are not invited to Spotify's Art Basel Miami Beach concert series. Good news: You can win tix or watch it on The Internet.
