Since you're already jogging through the "high" culture of the Miami Beach Convention Center, basking in the glow of curator masturbation material, stop by the Kohn Compound in Wynwood. Let the fearless group there haunt your audio dreams and bring Baseling to the next level with pure sound quality. Your eyes and paws need a break.
Your ears, however, could use some stimulation. From the brain-fuck hip-hop of Metro Zu to the intergalactic beats of Armando Von Feathers, Cashmere Kitties will be a beacon of light in your art blackout.
Cashmere Kitties is a 12-act, three-day festival at "The World's Largest Street Level Mural Installation." Rock duo and artists Pocket of Lollipops' Tony Kapel and Maitejosune Urrechaga curated this luxuriously psychedelic lineup, which also includes Lowercase, Boxwood, Datamouth, Shuttle Life, Chalk, Aleks Violet, Altus Noumena, Jiriki, True Steez, Jolt Radio, and Andie Sweet Swirl. The fair has 30,000 square feet of installations, sculpture, and graffiti situated out under the sun and stars. It runs until Saturday from 5 to 11:30 p.m at the Kohn Compound (219 NW 24th St., Wynwood).
