If you missed Kid Sister's performance not long ago at LIV, here's an opportunity to check her out again in a slightly more relaxed setting. Giant Step always curates quality events, and for Art Basel the label is putting on Chicago's favorite femme fatale electro-rapper at the Delano. She and her fans will celebrate the release -- finally! -- of her proper solo debut album, Ultraviolet. (Wonder if we'll hear any of the shelved tracks that were meant to make it onto the first version of the disc?) In one of a bazillion Basel-week gigs, Miami New Times' 2008 Best Club DJ, Induce, also provides the party soundtrack. The event's also sponsored by Svedka Vodka, in a mission to get to all you "cultural influencers," so RSVP for a liquored-up good time, gratis.
Friday, December 4. The Delano, 1685 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. Admission is free with RSVP at giantstep.net/events
