I am so stoked on this. Late Night at LACMA is going down again on the 21st, and this one promises to be incredibly cool. It’s free to anyone/everyone, but you HAVE to rsvp.
For those who haven’t heard of [email protected] before, get out from under that rock and give it a shot. The fact that I’m talking up a LACMA event is a big deal ‘cos I used to work there and am sorta burned out on the place–but this event is so cool (anytime I can drink, dance, and see live art at a world-class museum until 3am is a winner), I’ve already rsvp’d. LACMA, your 18-to-35-year-old target-marketed campaign has worked with me!* But what happened to the thing where you stayed open all night? That was the bestest.
Of particular interest to me are appearances by Lucent Dossier Vaudeville Cirque, hit&run t-shirt (myspace) screenings, a DJ set by Steve Aoki and a performance from Ima Robot, and live art–that means he stands there & paints in front of you–by the dude who did that image to the upper right there (and who you saw on last year’s LA Weekly Best of LA issue), Ronald Kurniawan. They’re also gonna have street-vendor-style food like tacos and grilled sausages.
Make that bacon-wrapped hot dogs, LACMA, and I’ll sell you my soul.
A comprehensive list of appearances, artists, performers and other stuffs behind el jumpo.
* Sorry but I have no money to give you.
