Saturday, guest curator Peter Lucas brought his collection of live-music film to the second annual Soul Nite, presented by Aurora Picture Show and benefiting Project Row Houses. Partygoers checked out the footage, projected on a big screen, danced and enjoyed the atmosphere. Lucas' selections included mid-1960s soul performances by Otis Redding, James Brown and Ray Charles, as well as lesser-known Texas artists like Barbara Lynn, Joe Tex and Freddy King.
