Fridays Off the 405
Dan Deacon and Brother Reade

Date: Friday, July 11, 2008
Time: 6:00–9:00 p.m.
Location: Getty Center, Museum Courtyard
Admission: Free; no reservations required.

Enjoy music and evening views of the city, tour the galleries, and revel in the end of the workweek in a casual and spontaneous atmosphere at this musical happening curated by culture magazine Flavorpill. Fridays Off the 405 features free live music and a cash bar (open until 8:30 p.m.).

See bugs and butterflies both illustrated and real in Maria Sibylla Merian & Daughters: Women of Art and Science, and trek to the Andes with The Marvel and Measure of Peru: Three Centuries of Visual Histories, 1560–1880. The galleries will be open throughout the night. Plus, survey the terrain for Saturday night, the launch of Summer Sessions.

July 11, 2008: Dan Deacon and Brother Reade
Baltimore's Dan Deacon is an electronics wizard-slash-classically trained composer who crafts raging, maxed-out party music. You're in for the party performance of the summer, enriched with a dose of light therapy thanks to various bulbs and Deacon's eeeevil green skull strobe light. Consistently voted best performer by readers and critics at Baltimore City Paper, Deacon is an intense performer and classic showman who wields a mean sine-wave generator. This is brilliance on an epically weird, loud, awesome scale. Skeptic? Check out his Crystal Cat video on YouTube.

The night opens with a DJ set by hip-hop up-and-comers Brother Reade, aka Jimmy Jamz (MC/lyricist) and Bobby Evans (DJ/producer), purveyors of body-rocking live shows—visceral and exciting and crazy and fun.
