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.
As a creative collective, Overthrow dives into Basel Miami Beach Week like a stripper at a mud-wrestling match who dropped her keys. See below for the full line up of events we are involved in or officially endorsing and join us.

Wednesday November 24th, come to Eve and give thanks to whoever invented the subwoofer!
Starring NERO, who have become a huge name in both the Drum and Bass and Dubstep scenes, often fusing both styles of music in their mind melting DJ sets. Having worked with everyone from Skream to La Roux, Deadmau5, Tiesto and Diplo, the duo of heavy producers has no shortage of high profile people to invite to their Thanksgiving dinner (if they weren’t British and celebrated Thanksgiving of course.) They also recently won the 2010 Beatport awards for best Dubstep Act and Best Dubstep Track for “Act Like You Know”.
This pre-Thanksgiving bass-a-thon does have its share of guests anyway, with a list of Miami’s biggest bringing their own to beats to the show.

Atlanta has no shame in its addiction to bass, and here lies the evidence. Overthrow recently brought Rusko’s OMG! Tour to the dirty south mecca for a sold out rage fest, also featuring our very own bass god, Heroes & Villains.

While we wouldn’t recommend attending an actual parade of wolves, especially if you’re wearing your new perfume Sheep’s Breathe or pretty much anything made of wool, we highly recommend you go check out the band WOLF PARADE at the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater WED Nov 10th.
Part of Sub Pop Records, one of the best indie rock labels over the last decade, Wold Parade bring their grand sound to the halls of Miami and show you why they have been one of the most talked about and critically acclaimed bands around.
Dont trust us? How about this little pull quote from Pitchfork?
“the band rolls like a Ritalin-deprived power-Bowie or 70s Eno flexing piano-based hooks over Pixified rhythms”
Booyah! Thanks well respected music critics for the back up!
Ninjasonik is not just the elaborate, tongue-in-cheek, metallectual, authentic progeny of the Brooklyn creative renaissance, its a way of life!
Overthrow and Poplife, in association with Van’s present the one and only NINJASONIK, live!, Saturday September 25th at Grand Central in downtown for a show that brings together all the ingredients for a raucous, vintage indie dance party:
First, art/rap/punk/electromashers Ninjasonik will be coming down from the BK to perform LIVE. Add a ramp and some skaters courtesy of MIA Skateshop, a pinch of I Am Your Villains throwback good vibery, and a crate full of Van’s giveaways, and youve got yourself a venue full of gourmet-worthy hipster stew that goes down fashionably smooth with a hint of irony and a rich aftertaste of ecstatic partying. Que sobroso!
All of this will be in addition to Overthrow’s Damaged Goods and Troy Kurtz and residents Jessica Who and Mike Deuce.
Not enough for you? Then RSVP to email@example.com for reduced admission and end the summer with a reverse ollie over a six pack of beers and earful of party tunes.
Bassnectar is truly a pioneer when it comes to the frontier of electro dub and bass music. Its like he was one of the first guys digging in San Fransico before the gold rush and damn did he find a precious thread!
Last time we had him in town at the White Room over 1200 people came and turned the place into a gut rattling bass pit. Now we are presenting him at the bigger and better sound equipped Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater for a theatrical show like none before. This will be the lowest the Fillmore has ever gone and we mean that in a good way!
We at Overthrow like to consider ourselves music enthusiasts, but it’s no rocket science that the mohawked bass destroyer Rusko aka Christopher Mercer will end 2010 as The King Of Bass and dubstep’s 1st crossover star. Rusko has already worked on Kid Sister’s “Ultraviolet” and M.I.A’s new release “/\/\ /\ Y /\” album, but the 25-year-old British producer has also just dropped his debut solo LP called O.M.G.! through Mad Decent, with heaters (and special guests Gucci Mane, Crookers, and more!)
For his OMG! US Tour, Overthrow presents Rusko’s almighty return to Atlanta Thursday October 28 at The Masquerade, alongside our very own Heroes & Villains (aka DJ Meganfoxxx).
This week, celebrate Wednesday with more then a stiff cocktail and starting to plan your weekend by heading to Miami Beach to see one of the most popular and consistently hard rocking bands around THE DEFTONES!
They will be performing LIVE at the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater on 17th and Washington, where they also happen to serve cheap drinks and empanadas.
Rock, hooch, and empanadas?
Your week just got a whole lot shorter.
