Art Basel Miami Beach

Vivian Girls, Exene Cervenka, The Blow at Pulse Miami Art Fair in December

The Art Basel Miami Beach music news just keeps coming. This time we've received word that the Vivian Girls, Exene Cervenka and the Blow will be performing at Pulse Miami Art Fair, which moves to Ice Palace Studios this year. Their performances are part of the fair's Pulse Miami Performance Series.

This will mark the Vivian Girls second South Florida performance in the span of a two months. The Brooklyn trio performed at Propaganda in Lake Worth in October. The girls take the stage at Ice Palace December 3.

Cervenka, who is best known as the co-founder of punk rock band X, will be performing December 4. She's released her first solo album since 1991 this year titled Somewhere Gone, so this should be a rare treat.

Finally, Portland musician the Blow will hit the stage December 5. Perhaps the least known of the acts, the Blow creates sweet and hooky-laden indie-pop music.

All the performances are technically free. Once you've paid the admission price to the fair -- $15 for general admission, $10 for students -- you can enjoy the performances at no additional cost. For information, visit
