Movies such as Beat Street and Breakin' put breakdancing in the spotlight in the '80s. But the art has evolved in the last 20 years, and dancers need more than a polyester track suit, a piece of cardboard, and some upper-body strength they need cojones grandes to achieve the mad athletic bravado audiences expect these days. Need proof? Go to the BBoy Hodown DVD release party at the Alamo Drafthouse and check out the insane pops, spins and flips recorded in the documentary. Vocalist Karina Nistal, H-town rappers Nosaprise and Savvi, and DJs Akshun Kid and Remix will perform after the film. Things start popping at 7 p.m.
