Friday To-Do: Spectrum

10 p.m., Star Bar. $5.

Cool Shoes' visual effects man Cameron Holifield is branching out, going to a “visually enhanced sonic experience.” That's code for a DJ set of the same sort of disco and electro jams you might hear at Cool Shoes, with the same kind of tripped-out video art you might see at Cool Shoes (if you can't find the music on the dance floor, look for it in the videos), but in a whole new context. Namely, Star Bar, the midtown lounge, where the dance floor is intimate, only folks of drinking age can get in and a separate room awaits the dance-weary/averse. Holifield and Cool Shoes co-founder Risky Biz both DJ (UPDATE: Now another Cool Shoes co-founder, Shawn Lee, has joined the bill). They've got their followings, but according to Holifield, the biggest draw might be local photographer Dandiwer, who's lately been lighting and backdropping space at Cool Shoes and taking free, posed party pics. It's sort of like lastnightsparty — a collage of hipsters — with better lighting and less nudity.
