The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston kicks its cool factor into overdrive during Steel Lounge Underground, an evening of music, drinks and video art. ''It's really a fun party, but we hope more than that,'' Connie McAllister, director of community engagement tells us via email. ''Every year, we see an incredibly diverse crowd coming for the music [then] spending time exploring the art in the galleries.''
The DJs this year were personally selected by Josh Zulu and Derek Jones of Soular Grooves. Acts include the nu-disco selections of Josh Dupont, Caribbean/reggae pieces from DJ Supa Neil, and Fistful of Soul founder Stewart Anderson. You'll also get live video performances from NoiseFold, an interactive media group founded by artists David Stout and Cory Metcalf. NoiseFold will be showing i I I, a three-screen ultra-wide black-and-white panoramic projection.
