Did you get the chance to see Outkast during this summer's great revival tour? If not, you missed out. If so, you were probably wondering about that weird black jumpsuit André 3000 wore with the cryptic message on it.

Always a pillar of unique and thoughtful style, André 3000 wore 47 different jumpsuits, one for each stop of the tour, and he wrote those messages in response to each day's super-saturated, Internet-driven media cycle.

Now, during Art Basel Miami Beach week, fans will finally get the chance to see all 47 put on public display as part of the mixed-media exhibit "i feel ya: SCAD + Andre 3000 Benjamin," coming to Mana Wynwood, from Wednesday, December 3, through Sunday, December 14.

Mohawk or shaved head... Just Look Alive.

Still breathing?

Good. 'Cause Look Alive Fest is back.

Last year, this "homegrown, alternative festival" popped up for its inaugural, two-night Art Basel Miami Beach week edition with Detroit noise-rocker Wolf Eyes, Houston's Indian Jewelry, and a bunch of locals like Teepee, Cop City/Chill Pillars, Lil Daggers, and Nerve City.

Now for Basel 2014, Look Alive's added another night to the rock, punk, and metal festivities. The organizers at Miami's Quiet Mind Recordings (formerly Spilt Milk Projects) have partnered with Gramps, Radio-Active Records, and Churchill's Pub. And they've booked a rad three-day, 11-act roster, headlined by drone metal legend Stephen O'Malley of Sunn O))) and Denmark post-punk crew Iceage.

But don't die from excitement on us... Just check the cut for Look Alive Fest's full lineup and schedule.

Not only is he a decorated electronic producer in his own right, with an illustrious original and remix catalog, boasting a Grammy nomination for his work on Tori Amos' "Don't Make Me Come to Vegas," Buttrich is also the man behind the curtain on a lot of house music's most seminal albums.

Through the years, he's watched as dance music grew from a purely underground phenomenon to highly profitable mainstream trend, and he's currently marking 20 years in the biz with a very special worldwide tour, #9414, featuring cameos from some of the scene's most beloved DJs.

Masked man and electronic experimentalist SBTRKT

Higher, higher, higher.

As Art Basel Miami Beach week approaches, the enviable aesthetic experiences on offer just pile up, up, up.

And today's thrilling #ABMB announcement... The addition of English electronic DJ, musician, and producer SBTRKT to III Points and YoungArts' already impressive Basel concert lineup.

"We've been trying to book him since 2011," says III Points' David Sinopoli. "But we wanted the live set, not the DJ set. We were dead set on hearing his tracks properly performed, as opposed to hearing him spin."

Art Basel Miami Beach 2014 Party Guide

Marco Torres
The hipster chicks in black hats are ready to arty-party. Are you?

With the tents going up in Midtown, Wynwood buzzing with activity, and new restaurants and hotels opening in Miami Beach, it can mean only one thing -- Art Basel Miami Beach is making its way back to the Magic City. And so are the parties.

Now, some will lament the Basel party scene as the "death of art," but pay no attention to those people. The art world isn't adversely affected just because you decide to dance and drink until 5 a.m. the first week of December.

So screw the naysayers. And remember to check Crossfade's Basel Party Guide often, because we'll keep updating it as new events are announced. If you don't see your party listed, feel free to email us with the details.

Toro y Moi Announces Les Sins Tour, Coming to Miami During Basel Week 2014

Photo by Andrew Paynter
Les Sins, otherwise known as Toro y Moi, born Chazwick Bradley Bundick.

When Toro y Moi came to downtown Miami's Grand Central in December, every hipster in the tri-county area went into fits. The Brooklyn artist played to a sold-out crowd while even more fans were left out in the (metaphorical South Florida) cold.

If you were a member of the unlucky, left-out lot, you may have a chance at redemption, but there is a catch ... Toro y Moi isn't exactly booked for a return, though you can catch mastermind Chaz Bundick's new dance project, Les Sins, on its inaugural tour at Bardot.
