Art collective OJO brings a new kind of social networking to MOCA tonight from 7 to 10 p.m. with their interactive "Flesh Car Crash," where the audience will be encouraged to take part in a communal music session. Musicians will pack themselves into two small cars, and each vehicle powers a variety of instruments and noise-making objects. Sound chaotic yet? The cars will also be moving during a "choreographed game of chicken." The FREE event is part of the downtown museum's Engagement Party series in which artists are given a three-month residency for the first Thursday of the month.If making noise isn't your thing, the Form and Function Foundation is ready to help kick-start your summer with their Summer of Strange Love benefit for VisionsfortheFuture.org, a non-profit Sri Lankan organization. Check out Plastic God's giant portrait of rapper/artist/all-around awesome M.I.A., dance to DJs Dirty Dave, Ben Barnes and John Eastwood or watch short films and more at the multimedia event. It's happening from 7 to 10 p.m. at Space 1520, located at 1520 N. Cahuenga Blvd. in Hollywood.
