SPECTRUM10 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.
