First Fridays: Remixed
While a few scenesters and industry folk ventured out into the city last night for some post new year's revelry at the house that Justin Timberlake built, Chi, we don't expect that many are going to brave the heavy rain and lightning storms this evening unless they are going to The Grove or the Arclight to finally catch The Life Aquatic or Million Dollar Baby or sneaking into their local multiplex in disguise to catch the horrible White Noise.
It's sad, though, because they will be missing out. The Natural History Museum's First Fridays event to kick off 2005 is a good one. LA Remixed is noting the closing of the current exhibit, LA: Light/Motion/Dreams, with a video remix accompanied by some of our favorite local hip hop and experimental turntablists. Breakestra, Dublab Sound System, and David J (among others) will all take their turns mixing to the multimedia presentation.
The Natural History Museum is at 900 Exposition Boulevard in Los Angeles. General Admission is $15, members and students get in for $12. The party starts at 7:30 PM.
