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 our monthly Fridays Off the 405 series.
Fridays Off the 405 features free live music and a cash bar from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. The galleries will be open until 9:00 p.m. as well so you can enjoy the stunning paintings in Rubens and Brueghel: A Working Friendship and the explosive visual poetry in A Tumultuous Assembly: Visual Poems of the Italian Futurists.
August 18, 2006: Matthew Dear and Ryan Elliott
Rolling Stone called his CD Leave Luck to Heaven "as invigorating a dance-floor record as has been heard all year." Matthew Dear blends microhouse, minimal techno, deadpan vocals, and good old-fashioned songwriting ability into addictive and melodic machine music.
Another Detroit up-and-comer, DJ Ryan Elliott programs well-crafted sets ranging from ice-cold minimal techno to summery house beats. Calling himself a "player of fine records," Elliott is a walking dictionary of artists, labels, and releases.
Fridays Off the 405 is sponsored by:
