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."

Billy Joel Announces First Miami Concert in Seven Years

Billy-Joel_Concert_Miami_2015.jpg

Sing us a song, you're the Piano Man.

It's been 20 years since Billy Joel put out a new collection of music. And he's got no plans for "another album of original tunes," he says. Maybe ever.

As Joel recently told the New Yorker: "If I put out an album now, it would probably sell pretty well, because of who I am, but that's no reason to do it. I'd want it to be good. And I've seen artists on that treadmill, putting out albums year after year, and the albums get worse and worse, less and less interesting, and it's, like, maybe you should stop."

Fortunately for his fans, the Piano Man's got no such feelings about the arena circuit.

Holy Ship! 2015's pre-parties will be on dry land. But there's still gonna be sexy lifeguards on duty.

Do nautical dreams come true? Can an aging couple rise from the ranks of fandom into total brand-worthy acceptance? They do, and they can if you're talking about #ShipFam.

Last year, Stephanie and Robert P. Bunting organized a well-attended Officially Unofficial Holy Ship!!! Pre-Party that packed tons of #ShipFam DJs and delicious pizzas into downtown Miami's Avenue D for a rioutously good time.

Everyone was talking about the bash aboard the vessel, and the chatter must have reached HARD honcho Gary Richards, because the Buntings are hosting two Officially UnOfficial Holy Ship! 2015 Pre-Parties, and we've got the lineups.

"I CANNOT WAIT!"

Oh yes, all caps and exclamation points... That's how excited Taylor Swift is about her 1989 World Tour.

Another reason Ms. Swift is stoked: The 24-year-old record sales machine just released 1989, her fifth studio album (named, obvi, for the year of her birth), and it's already sold in excess of 1.3 million; i.e., the most ever in a single week by a female musician and the most by anybody since 2002.

And now she's all set to sell out arenas and stadiums from Baton Rouge to Amsterdam, London, Los Angeles, and Miami. Just check the cut for Taylor Swift's 1989 World Tour schedule.

One does not simply like Phish.

Phish Heads are some of the most dedicated fans in the world. There's just something about this jam band that works white people into a frothy, goofy-dance mess. Even those who aren't that familiar with Trey Anastasio and crew have tales of losing themselves in the music, maaan.

So if you're a huge Phish fan and you live in Miami, do the "Meatstick" dance. Because just like in 2009, the Vermont-based cult band is coming to the American Airlines Arena to perform on New Year's Eve -- and then again for the next three days in a row.
