Basel Music, bro

I missed the recent Broken Social Scene concert up in Pompano, but that's ok, I have no money and Art Basel is next week. 

I wanted to write about two shows coming up. I don't know how anyone got this info before I did, considering I've been stalking and scheming to find out who this year's Art Loves Music artist is, but they did, and it's Yelle. I assume it's because they have pull and stuff, and I just obsessively check websites. Yelle is fine and good, but I am just imagining a sea of sandy kafiahs. For the past few years though, I've been sneaking into the Deitch Projects private concert event which takes place at the same time as this show, and usually features someone I whose album I actually own. I'm not saying more, because I don't need any competition at the door. 

The other exciting news I've known about for a bit, but which I didn't write on because I am unsure of the cost. Casiotone for the Painfully Alone will be performing at NADA's opening night, next Tuesday. Last year it was Deerhoof, and it cost like $15 to see the band, with free drinks, and it wasn't packed. I'm hoping this year will be the same, though I've read it's $50. I think the show starts at 8. 

There's also Of Montreal and the Firey Furnaces in Broward at Revolution on Dec. 6. The show is kind of early, so I think you might have to trade Wynwood for the next county up. 

An after Basel delight involves me watching David Byrne at the Fillmore, Dec. 13. I can't wait! I'm going to be the other person in the room with gigantic shoulder pads.

I'm with you on this one. The NADA opening was fun. The price was high last year too. It's gets cheaper as the night goes on (the idea behind is that the early birds get first dibs on the art).

I always miss the Deitch Projects show b/c I"m on the sand and by the time I go, it's too packed. Not this year!

I can't believe Basel starts next week....

Yeah, but of montreal and fiery furnaces suck.

I am pretty sure that if you show up just for the music part (starting at 8?) the cost is $25 bucks with an open bar.
