Basel 2013: Wednesday Party Guide
Basel hasn't even officially begun. And we here at Crossfade are already hungover.
Even though the actual art fair opens tomorrow, the cruising and boozing and schmoozing's been in full effect since Monday afternoon, when the early-bird, invite-only charity fundraisers starting serving free drinks and finger foods to celebs, VIPs, and free-loading bloggers.
But tonight, the parties for everyone (and yes, some you're still not invited to) finally get goin'. Just check the cut for Crossfade's 15-party guide to today's Basel 2013 music and club stuff.
