Artsy parties

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

Back in the Renaissance era, high society would go to court to see beautiful works of art. They’d ooh and ahh while gliding to music performed by dudes in floppy hats. This week, there are not one, but two parties bringing together cool art and hot butt shaking. There won’t be any medieval garb, but there might be some skanky corsets.

The first is Art in the Park, going down Thursday, Oct. 4, at Bluefoot Bar & Lounge (3404 30th St.) in North Park. The bar converts its dimly lit back room into an art party featuring live art in various mediums. In the past, artists have created etched-wood pieces and graffiti-style portraits. Lending the grooves will be a rotating lineup of local DJs, including Mystery Cave, Abjo and Sufficient Sounds. Get down and get familiar with the local art scene at 7 p.m.

If you want to cleanse your palette before more artsy-fartsy fun, Basic Urban Kitchen and Bar (410 10th Ave.) in East Village has begun a weekly Thursday-night music series called Fundamentals. For this, a DJ joins forces with a musician to create unique party jams. In the coming weeks, Basic will host DJs Theron, Este and Beatnick mixing sounds with saxophonist Jason Whitmore. The result should take the energy level in the warehouse space up a notch. If not, grab a slice of mashed-potato pizza and listen to Beyoncé in your car. That’s always a good backup.

Now, back to that second art party I mentioned. Elektrofied, happening Saturday, Oct. 6, at The Flame (3780 Park Blvd.) in Hillcrest, will feature artwork by Jason Acton, Danny Peralta, Konstant B and others, as well as electro club bangers from DJs Rob DeSisto and Insanelysounds. Kicking it up will be a live set by The New Kinetics, as go-go dancers wiggle their goodies. Finally, that art degree will come in handy.
