Interactive Music at MOCA; Art and More at Sri Lankan Benefit

Continuing its Engagement Party series, tonight's "Flesh Car Crash" at MOCA features art/music collective OJO.
Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

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, 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.
