The Overthrow Hijacks Ultra Week With Black Magick and the Ivory Tower

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 one-offs were similarly twisted. In February of 2010, while L.A. producer Deathface played a gig at White Room, the crew even staged a full occult ritual, complete with a half-naked sacrificial virgin.

For real, if anyone was pushing dirty decadence to its limit, it was the Overthrow. But just before last year's edition of Winter Music Conference, the group was still a shadowy, floating bunch without a home of its own. That is, until Overthrow co-founders Alexis Mincolla and Sam Baum had an epiphany.
