Art Basel 2017 Guide

It's that time of the year again, when Miami turns into a giant party. "But, wait..." you start to say. "Miami is...always a party."

Yes, that is true. This conversion of the city yields high end art that very few people go look at, an influx of psuedo-artists judging gallery art as they scribble on an abandoned phone booth outside as well as ambiguously European guys living out their Instagram fantasies.

Anyways, here's some stuff you may want to attend.

Arrington De Dionyso w/ Honorable Demons (parade show)


Kill your Idol Presents a night of no cover Art Basel nightmare curated by

King Demon (demon king of Honorable Demons).
This night brings out Bringing out the legendary Arrington de Dionyso! Legendary sax, throat singing sensation! Honorable Demons plan to March and parade (might be literal, come to find out!) all over this Art Basel Art Fluff, no take over, just a revolution. Acts of the night will include Honorable Demons, Arrington de Dionyso, Tiger's Milk and Street Rat!!! A night to be remember in art world nightmares.

- Arrington de Dionyso :!!!! ( we are so Proud and yes, honored to have him!)

A great artist and experimental musician ( expert in some raw sax techinques) Arrington has spearheaded the bands Old Time Relijun, Malaikat Dan Singa, and This Saxaphone kills fascists. 
His music has raw power yet also a meditative feel. Has guest stared with bands such as Tune Yards, Violet Femmes, Oh Sees, Deer Hoof

- Tiger's Milk: 

A great razzy Jazz project , With Artuo Garcia (one of the greatest underrated jazz musicians in miami, who has put forth diy orchestras, made events for Santa Sangre Sound tracks!! and plays in the more stoner metal outfit Cave of Swimmers. Dion , on bass who has recently also joined Seafoam walls (jazz rock band) both exceptional players who often play at the Corner for the legit jazz nights on tuesdays.

- Street Rat!!!! street punk, avant gardist full of no wave guitar and experimental drumming. Pet (rat) project of Gladys Harlow, perhaps the miami diy scenes hardest working person and most helpful in the music community, who has taken part of projects such as period bomb, tete a tete, Boy, and (good old ) Honorable Demons. Street Rat is full of raw power and surprises.

- Honorable Demons: 
Miami's most unfavorable Art jazz unit. “They will take you to heaven before taking you to hell” (sideshow bob) and some times the other way around. Lot's of improv and jazz standards (cough cough no wave standards and Broadway tunes) .

Visionquest - Art Basel Showcase

No journey dwells in the past, though, even when it might find inspiration and strength there. And so, Visionquest is poised to take on the world alongside an array of artists and DJs who have played important roles in the growth of the project over the past half decade. 

Art Basel will be a gathering of old and new worlds, of old and new friends, of old and new gods, of the inner and outer spheres, of the sacred and the profane, of the one and the many.
