Panda Bear, No Age and the Sads Playing Free Show at Karu & Y Friday UPDATE

Can't tell you how many times we've been specifically asked about hearsay that Animal Collective's Panda Bear was playing in Miami during Basel. Well we can fully confirm that the experimental musician, along with No Age and the Sads, will be playing a free show at Karu & Y Friday night. You have Nike, NADA Art Fair, and ANP Quarterly to thank (or not) for the show. All you have to do is RSVP to [email protected].

Art Damage with Panda Bear, No Age, the Sads and DJ Semen, Friday, December 5 at Karu & Y. Free with RSVP; 21+; doors open at 9:30 p.m.

UPDATE: We just received an e-mail from a Nike representative. Apparently, the show isn't that free after all: "This is a private event with a guest list driven by NADA, ANP and Nike, unfortunately, it is not open to the public. As a result we are cross referencing every name that RSVP's against our own list and will only be admitting people who have directly been invited by the three sponsoring parties."

Seriously?
