Weekend Calendar for ART BASEL at the Stage!!!!

It's that time of year again when the city of Miami becomes a living, breathing art exhibit itself... allow us to curate some bad@$$ sounds and live painting all week long for a true audiovisual experience!

It's going down at The Stage in the heart of Miami's Design District! We know this is a lot of information to take in but being the party purveyors that we are, we must keep you in-the-know!

Saturday, December 3rd / Doors 3PM / Day Vent!
+ Falling Whistles Benefit
Join us at The Stage for a special Day Vent: Basel Edition benefiting Falling Whistles. Your favorite DJ's spinning everything from funk and soul to hip hop.

Live music by Electric Kif featuring Amin De Jesus (Suenalo MC) and Nikki Kidd. Live painting The Co11ective guest artist and special presentation by Falling Whistles: A Campaign for Peace in Congo.

Falling Whistles gives a small window into our world's largest war. It began as a journal entry written about child soldiers not big enough to carry a gun. They were given merely a whistle and sent to the front lines in Congo to make enough noise to scare the enemy and receive the first round of bullets making them human shields.
