Another Art Basel Miami Beach week has come and gone.
But while we definitely got our art on and loved every awesome musical act, we couldn't stop staring at what all those fancy motherfuckers were wearing!
What can we say, we here at Crossfade are somewhat shallow. So we headed out to one of the ... More >>

It had been a long time since Rakim rolled through our hood prior to last night's performance at The Stage.

If you mix alcohol, dancing and a queer pop collective with a fancy hotel and a pool, you're probably going to end up pissing off security.
Over the weekend, the Ssion crew set up at the Shore Club for the Pulse Miami Art Fair afterparty, delivering a set that included star cameos, cracked voices, ... More >>
Most art is silent. Even during Basel week.
That's why we here at Crossfade -- an admittedly hopeless gaggle of noise junkies -- just can't get through the week without offsetting our 12-hour days at the art fairs with 12-hour nights at Miami's hipster bars, rock dives, and downtown concert hall ... More >>
Sure, we like to pretend the week of Art Basel Miami Beach (AKA Miami Art Week) is all about the glorified flea market happening either side of the causeway. But you just want to party. You can't afford to pay $10,000 for a bike covered in Saran Wrap and called "Untitled." But you can afford the cov ... More >>

Right now, Miami is being swarmed by art fairs, galleries, and artists from across the globe. Of course, we're talking about Art Basel Miami Beach.
A side benefit to all this arty international activity is the influx of awesome music to entertain all the jetsetters. And naturally, Crossfade is k ... More >>

When disco-pop dude Penguin Prison isn't dancing or doin' time, he's apparently waddling over to Occupy Wall Street to shoot music videos, shout down the bankers, and express solidarity with the Ninety-Nine Percent.
His new vid is called "Don't Fuck With My Money." And just like Mr. Penguin, we ... More >>
Every Art Basel, someone's throwing a party at a strip club.
A few years ago at Goldrush Miami, a bunch of scenesters put on a fete that featured free tequila shots and Miller High Life. If memory serves, the door was guarded by a password. That was a hot time. A superstupid end-of-Basel night. ... More >>

Perhaps Oh Jack at the Dream Hotel wasn't the only Halloween bash that got its fair share of rain on Saturday night. But considering it was touted as a party on the hotel's rooftop, the dow ... More >>
Arguably one of the best parties last year and Best One-Nighter winner for this year's Best of Miami, Basel Castle returns for another night of awesome music and kickass art at Overthrow Castle.
The Overthrow, which seems to have been a little quiet lately, has amassed a lineup that includes li ... More >>

By the spring of 2010, parties thrown by local creative collective the Overthrow were already legendary. The now-defunct Black Sundays series at Bella Rose became, possibly, the only weekly party on South Beach to regularly stage faux murders, scoring a few Best of Miami nods from New Times. Its ...

Arty nudes with Theophilus London?Never known for moderation, the Overthrow crew wasn't about to let Art Basel Miami Beach week slip past without plotting some kind of epic descent into nth-level fun and excess.
