Head to Area 1 to see if you recognize anyone from the clips. Then stay for the danceable beats served up by The Fluokids, who are coming all the way from France to lay it down. Rounding out the rotation will be local DJs Michele from Spinnin Kitties, Reverberations Psychedelic Sex Panther, Speakerboxxs Dayta and more. Area 51 will feature Calles bigger-than-life drawings. I drew all this shit, and Im just going to blow it up really big billboard style, he says, adding that most of them are of dinosaurs and DeLoreans. These drawings will provide the backdrop for musical performances by local poppy post-punkers The Factory Party, instrumental experimentalists B. and H-Town favorites Spain Colored Orange.
The night includes free Sparks and beer while it lasts, but be careful not to pull any regrettable drunken stunts or one of Calles cronies might tape it and show it at future festivities. 9 p.m. Thunderdome Warehouse, 3020 Garrow Street. For information, call 832-221-3331 or visit
