Miami went medieval on that ass as we opened our headquarters for Basel Castle 2010!
After a week of preparations within the Castle itself, every stone block and rampart of the downtown lair was ready for one of the most talked about events of Art Basel week Miami 2010. After 3500 RSVPs, the list website simply shut down even as hundreds of art and music fans continued to want to join the party. As the line went around the block, the Castle gates swung open to reveal a carnival tent featuring skeeball by Tara McPherson, a wheel of chance by Ron English, darts by Mike Giant, and giant puzzle by Marc Bode. ABV had a pop up gallery featuring art from their Overseas and Undertones show as they did live art on the walls of the gallery. The Overthrow headquarters was turned into an exclusive VIP room where Han Cholo presented a freakshow inspired display of their retro inspired jewelry, Jose Cuervo Platino kept the tequila flowing, and there was plenty of cold Pabst Blue Ribbon and spicey Prometheus Springs for all.
Outside, the torches flared and the lights spun as DJs Troy Kurtz, Pirate Stereo, Tamara Sky and Damaged Goods hyped the crowd and Brooklyn rock band Sweathearts and Miami pop crooner JESP rocked live performances. Things started getting really packed as the castle erupted when Rye Rye took the stage with 3 dancers doing hyperspeed choreographed dance moves. When Theophilus London took the stage and laced the crowd with his electro soul songs, one of a kind dance moves, and personal drum kit, the walls nearly crumbled. The night closed out with Blaqstarr live and a special guest DJ set by LA Riots. In the end, an incredible night of art, games, prizes, musketeers, music, dancing, and partying left just the right impression for everyone who attended the Basel Castle.
Coco Deville has a new, especially troublesome habit, and its something she just can’t quite stop: partying on Thursday night!
Starting this week, Coco’s Habit will be the new vice of Miami beach Thursday nights. Featuring residents DJ Troy Kurtz, Pirate Stereo and an incredible list of the best guest DJs who also can’t get enough will be cutting up the purest sets of nue-disco, dance, and other bumping unexpected hits.
Its going to be a loungey but lively vibe where it’s ok to indulge in whatever you like.
The whole set is also going to be broadcast live on Wynwood Radio.
Just remember to share with your friends.

Summer anywhere can leave you hot and bothered, but only summer in Miami leaves you Haute & Bothered!
To celebrate the fashionable near nakedness and sexual hormonal spikes of Miami’s naughtiest season (whatever tourists and winter, locals get really scandalous during the summer), Overthrow’s Troy Kurtz made a mix that perfectly fits the sins of the city during the summer. Sophisticated bass, exclusive remixes, and sexy blends make this mix the one to drop when the heat becomes to much to bear without bearing a little more skin.

Wynwood’s gallery/lounge CAFEINA plays host to the official release party of this mix with Troy playing an extended Haute & Bothered set, and guest sets by Corey Sleazemore and Damaged Goods. To keep you cool and quench your thirst, we will be having drink specials all night.

Overthrow has been working with Miami designers Last Rights on a collaborative clothing line set to come out for fall/winter 2010. Needless to say, the collection is epic, mysterious, and almost entirely black.
Until that comes out, you can create your own collaboration with Last Rights by voting on their new project THE NEW MIAMI. Check their writeup on it below:
Since Last Rights came on the scene, we have always stayed true to our roots and represented the great city of Miami to the fullest. We are extremely proud and excited to see THE NEW MIAMI movement that is taking place right now. Having a group of young, talented, and very hungry individuals at the forefront, there is no way that the arts of Miami will ever be overlooked…
That being said, it is only right that we get the people involved in deciding which of these shirts should be produced. After all Last Rights is here for the YOU. With out your support we are nothing. We will be producing whichever design wins on both black and white T’s…
Take the time to vote and make a difference! And remember, this is just the beginning!

Overthrow’s Aban Sonia is one of the few ladies around who is crazy and creative enough to not only deal with the Overthrow but run shit through it. But don’t take our word for it; she just got a full-on, 2 part write up by NBC NiteTalk. Check out part one here and part two here.
See them in all their skeletal sexually harassing glory on the sexiest bunch of drank slangin, bra bustin’, bad-ass bartenders and waitress in Miami at Misfit Friday at Louis in the Gansevoort South.

Overthrow’s resident Viking, visual artists, and supplier of Black N Mild residue Stian Roenning built and operates a mega creative warehouse that has been home to many of the shoots for us and a site for many a black magick ritual. Recently he was joined by frequent collaborators, photographers Mike Raveney and Anthony Verrilli, both of whoms work ends up on this very site fairly often. The above video shows the behind the scenes of the studio, Stian explaining some of the dynamic sensibility that drives Overthrow, and this article here goes more in depth on the studio and what goes on there. Rituals not included.
