From Andy Warhol and the Velvet Underground to Kaws and Kanye West, the connection between music and fine art is inextricable. Personally, I find few things more inspiring than listening to great music in galleries or museums. So I’m rather excited that the kind people over at DiverseWorks asked me to come play some records tomorrow. A bastion of arts and culture in Houston, DiverseWorks has fostered creative types across mediums for years. Come check out the exhibition, have a few drinks and shoot the shit with some talented artists, curators and all around good folks.
Here’s some more info from the press release.

After an action packed weekend of art openings and performances, kick back at DiverseWorks for Industry Night. If you are an artist, work, volunteer, board member or intern in the art community or just want to meet other people in the industry, join us for happy hour. Bring your business card, or DiverseWorks Membership card to receive exclusive drink specials for those in the biz.
Industry night is our way of giving back to our friends in the biz. It’s a time to slow down, catch up, and kick back a few drinks with artists, presenters, curators, board members, volunteers—all the incredible people that comprise the city’s cultural workforce and make Houston, Texas such an interesting place to live. We heart them. – Diane Barber, Co-Executive Director & Visual Arts Curator at DiverseWorks
