With the new year just days away and the Top 50 South Florida Songs of 2012 posted for your holiday listening pleasure, we thought we’d share, in no particular order, our favorite photos of this past year. As these pixels prove, it’s been a good one.
With sweet prizes and sweeter glory on the line, the Beached Miami community stepped up on Instagram and shared 1,500+ #beachedbasel photos from its collective Art Basel experience, posting everything from celebrity sightings (Will Ferrell, Beyoncé, Kanye, Iggy) and fabulously farcical fashionistas to flame-throwing graffiti artists and polka-dotted poodles.
Sharing the bill with fellow electronic experimentalists Tanlines, Baltimore-based synth-pop composer Dan Deacon performed at downtown venue Grand Central Saturday night. To view a full album by photographer Alex Broadwell, visit the Beached Miami Facebook page.
Touring behind their fourth album, Kill For Love, the Portland-based Chromatics played their Miami debut with Prince Rama at the Gusman Friday night. To view more photos from the show, which was presented by Sweat Records, visit the Beached Miami Facebook page.

Ready or not, Art Basel is upon us. To remind you what we’re in for — and to inspire you to take part in the #beachedbasel Instagram Photo Contest — here’s a selection of the only-in-Miami-only-during-ABMB photos we’ve captured over the last two years.
Ready or not, Art Basel is upon us. In past years, we have attempted to be everywhere and capture everything during the extended week of art madness, swelling our cameras’ memory cards to the bursting point and running ourselves ragged in the process. This year we have a different plan, and it involves you.
