Mexican-born, Berlin-based artist Damián Ortega creates raw, materials-based conceptual work that doesn’t lose its sense of humor—the inspiration for the jumping sonic explosion of Experiment: naco/geil. Expect reggaeton, baile, cumbia and other ass-thumping jams from Uproot Andy and NYC DJ collective Nacotheque in our lobby, then fast-forward to a Berlin-style minimal haus in our theatre with the BOSTON DEBUT of Voodeux and John Barera on deck with VJ [email protected] Boch on visuals. Special host and “Best DJ in Boston” Baltimoroder will keep it grounded to local turf with both pan-Latin and Deutsche sets. Don't leave Boston this weekend. Come here, and bring your passport. Get here early so you don't miss a f***ing thing!
**Buy tickets now! If you haven't seen the Ortega exhibition, buy early then come to this. $5 on top of regular museum admission gets you into the party and into the galleries, which are open until 10:30.**
