Friday To-Do: Cool Shoes



New from Luminfire. Click to download.

10 p.m., Downtown Music. $5.

In certain circles, there's been a steady refrain among folks old enough to drink and unselfconscious enough to dance (or at least watch people dance): “Cool Shoes sucks. Too. Many. Kids.” Even after the monthly dance party moved from all ages to 18 plus. Well here you go teen-hating young adults: Cool Shoes is now open only to those 21 and up. On Friday, you'll be able to grind age appropriately to a stellar bill. Casey S., a vet of electronic projects like W/O and Western Meds, works the decks with Wolf-e-Wolf, an active and progressive DJ from Conway who drove the crowd bananas last time he played the party, and Luminfire, a Fayetteville DJ who runs the music blog Ants in My Trance ( and, at least based on what I've seen, easily fits among the state's best DJs. For an advance taste, download his new mixtape. And, as he typically does, Cameron Holifield provides trippy video installations to go with the music.
