Thurston Moore says, "Need more tuneage."
Most art is silent. Even during Basel week.

That's why we here at Crossfade -- an admittedly hopeless gaggle of noise junkies -- just can't get through the week without offsetting our 12-hour days at the art fairs with 12-hour nights at Miami's hipster bars, rock dives, and downtown concert halls.

So if you're similarly afflicted by an out-of-control addiction to tuneage, let us rendezvous at these fifteen best concerts during Art Basel Miami Beach 2012.

Thurston Moore. As part of KURT, a multi-discipline exhibition. With a short film by Adarsha Benjamin and a performance by Ryan Heffington. Presented by the Friends of Gusman, Olympia Theater, and Onward Forward. Thursday, December 6, 8 p.m., Gusman Center for the Performing Arts, 174 E. Flagler St., Miami; 305-372-0925; Tickets cost $25 to $50 via As a kid, little Kurt idolized Kiss. A few years later, he was obsessed with Sonic Youth. Luckily, the Friends of Gusman selected Thurston Moore to headline this "study of the late Kurt Cobain." And not, you know, Gene Simmons's 12-inch tongue.
