It’s not an oxymoron: Does your local art museum have rock bands and a mixed-tape exchange?
Tuesday, May 23, 2006
It’s an unseasonably chilly Friday night in Pittsburgh, but inside the Andy Warhol Museum, a swarm of stylish 20- and 30-somethings aren’t letting that stop them from imagining themselves at a Factory party. Wandering around the lobby, wine glasses in hand, they gather around Pop Art prints. The museum’s theater has been temporarily turned into a concert space, and indie rockers The Mountain Goats can be heard tuning their guitars. It’s part of the museum’s weekly Good Fridays event; admission is slashed in half, and young folks gather from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. for drinks and special programs, such as a mixed-tape exchange, in which participants swap cassettes they’ve made.
