James Blake will lead off III Points Art Basel concert series.
Good to see you've taken a moment to veer away from the disorder and chaos in which the rest of the internet is neck-deep to read about something fun. Good call, bud.
Today, in spite of it all, we're rolling out our Art Basel 2016 party coverage. We've started a list of all the party announcements, we've gotten the exclusive scoop on PAMM's 2016 bash headed by Cashmere Cat, and now we're turning our attention to III Points, which has already stirred excitement with plans for a stellar Art Basel 2016 concert series at Magic City Studios and the Factory at Magic City — two Little Haiti venues across the street from each other.
III Points will begin Thursday, December 1, with rap's enigma, Young Thug, and Shlohmo. Also on Thursday, nearby at Little River Studios, III Points will tea up with PLoT for the annual Life and Death party featuring Âme, Damian Romero, DJ Tennis, Dorisburg (live), Job Jobse, Hernan Cayetano, HVOB (live), Prins Thomas, Taimur Agha & Fahad, and others.
Then, on Friday, Norway's nu-disco viking andpart-time underwear salesman, Todd Terje, will lead a lineup consisting of Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Tim Sweeney. On Saturday, Chet Faker will join the English duo Mount Kimbie, which will perform a live set. And finally, on Sunday, Acid Pauli will be in the house to entertain you as you drift in and out of consciousness, inches from exhaustion.
And just in case that's not enough meat for your burrito, III Points informed us today of one more concert. To kick things off, on Wednesday, November 30, James Blake will headline with a DJ set alongside Airhead, Dan Foat, Klaus, and Mr. Assister. Tickets went on sale this morning and cost $25 to $40 via showclix.com.
OK, now you may return to your deep, unwavering sense of dread.
