Art Basel week is here! Over the years it’s grown into a massive bonanza of art with music, parties and surprises abounding everywhere! You’ll definitely find us at the annual Art Loves Music concert on the beach – Canada’s METRIC are playing for free on the sand at 10pm around Collins and 21st. As for the rest, peep the New Times and the Sweat Events page, and here’s where else you can find Sweat this week…
Local fashion/jewelry designer Nektar Di Stagni is curating the pop-up NDS Market in her space in the Design District (155 NE 38th St.). Sweat has a sweet crate of vinyl and CDs there, and you’ll also find contributions from Roofless, University of Wynwood, and many other local arts entities. It’s open daily through Basel from 11am to 7pm.
Thursday through Sunday check out the completely home-grown Miami’s Independent Thinkers fair at Casa Wynwood (2135 NW 1st Ct.) featuring a slew of local artists, live music every night, DJs, and their Sunday “Art Basil” farmer’s market event! For the full artist and band schedule check the event page.
Friday at The Vagabond Basel edition is the after-party for MIT and Fountain, and features live performances by two of Miami’s most dynamic electronic acts: PANIC BOMBER + BFGF! It’s also the premiere screening of Panic Bomber’s highly-anticipated new multi-media video for “Getting On My Mind” so don’t miss it!
And of course Sweat Records is open our normal store hours – noon to 10pm Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 6pm Sunday. Stop by for espresso (FUEL!) for your Basel week activities and see you around!
