Tegan and Sara.
Art Basel in Miami Beach may have begun as a snooty event for the arts elite, but these days, there's something for everyone at the cultural mega-fest. (Well, everyone brave enough to join the endless traffic queues, anyway.)

Proof: Today's best events include both Martha Stewart and Ghostface Killah. You just don't get much more diverse than that.

In other news, everybody's heading to the beach tonight for Scope's VH1 party, and if you want to avoid the South Beach madness, there's plenty to keep you busy (and boozy) on the mainland, too.

Boy George: The traffic, the crowds, the hangovers -- do you really want to hurt us, Art Basel? Let Boy George melt away your residual Art Week stress at Mana Wynwood.
Doors at 9 p.m. Visit

Ghostface Killah: The Stage's killer line-up continues tonight with Sheek Louch (from Tha Lox), and DJs Exes, Klassik, Self Born, and Heron -- and, oh yeah, a little rapper from a group called Wu-Tang.
Doors at 10 p.m. Tickets cost $33. Visit

Martha Stewart: She's the biggest name on the Design Miami schedule this year (to the average person, anyway), and something tells us she won't be waxing poetic about apple pies and tablescapes in her chat with Stefano Tonchi.
6-7 p.m. Visit

Occupant: Artist Daniel Arsham and dancer Jonah Bokaer continue their tradition of collaboration at the Arsht with a minimalist dance performance involving plaster and chalk. Expect a cloudy good time.
6 p.m. Tickets cost $35. Visit

I hate to sound like a snob, Art Basel has become too accessible. As if one tenth of the people who gawk and pose have any idea what the weekend is about. Move it to Fisher Island and cut it off to the hoards of trash!
