Tonight is your last chance to dance in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston this year without looking like a weirdo. The Starbucks Mixed Media series closes its 2008 summer season with turntablism from James Pants and Small Town DJs.
Washington's James Pants is a little more trippy than dancey. The DJ's tunes are filled with spaced-out drum tracks and keyboards. A good pick to get things started for The Small Town DJs. These Canadians specialize in remixing plenty of American artists – The Beach Boys, Missy Elliot, Modest Mouse, Busta Rhymes, Sly and the Family Stone – for your dancing pleasure.
And as always, MMS curator and local DJ Ceeplus Bad Knives will be on hand to keep the night – and you – moving. While you're there, don’t forget to check out MFA's featured exhibit “END GAME: British Contemporary Art from the Chaney Family Collection,” including canvases covered in dead flies, moths and butterflies, neon sign sculptures and a giant egg slicer. - Dusti Rhodes
