Perry and Etty Farrell at Bardot for Precision Guided Musicians Art Basel Bash

Bardot is the only music venue in South Florida that has a very strict no-camera, no-press policy. However, Perry Farrell's Basel bash last night was the first and only time Bardot allowed select photographers inside the club. And while the camera restrictions were still very tight, Bardot and Mr. Farrell gave Crossfade exclusive access to the stage.

With a legendary rep for working the crowd, Perry didn't disappoint. He put on a crazy show, climbing onto counters, running through the crowd, and balancing on monitors. At one point, he slipped off one of those speaker-perches, bashing his chin on the ground. But that didn't stop Farrell. He just rallied deeper into his two-hour set.

The Precision Guided Musicians mastermind started the party by getting properly acquainted with the VIPs. His schmoozing method: Sing, cruise the crowd, shake some ass.

Soon, though, Perry returned to the stage where he and DJ Chris Cox laid down some electronic tuneage.

For a minute, Farrell even set aside the mike, took a spot behind the decks, and mixed himself.

Then Perry's wife-slash-musical-collaborator Etty joined the party. (She's also got a reality TV gig on E!'s Married to Rock.) The couple hugged and danced, working up to something a bit more intimate.
