Dance Your 'Art Out Feat. Get Got, DJs Potamus & Orig Tonight at Mercy Lounge



Art and dancing: good. Leukemia: bad. Same for lymphoma. Fuck lymphoma, actually. Art plus dancing plus DJs equals party to benefit fighting leukemia and lymphoma, tonight at Mercy. Laura Hutson from this week's Critics' Picks:

Imagine if the most crowded gallery at the Art Crawl suddenly broke into dance. That’s the sort of hypothetical Dance Your ’Art Out is attempting to make a reality. It’s a party for the art crowd that features installations by Twist Gallery — who are bringing along work by artists Jaime Raybin and Ryan Hogan — at Mercy Lounge, while instrumental hip-hop from Get-Got and sets from DJs Orig and Potamus are bound to make even the most introverted art wallflower break a sweat. Think of it as a social experiment to discover what happens when art nerds rock out. It’s a great idea: There’s tons of overlap between the dance crowd and the art world, and those stragglers who’ve been waiting in the outer rings of the art/dance Venn Diagram have a great excuse to mingle. There’s a $5 cover, and all proceeds go to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.

9 p.m. at Mercy Lounge.
