COOL SHOES
9:30 p.m., Downtown Music. $5.

It's with shame I'll admit that I haven't been to a Cool Shoes dance party since the first one, where there was someone with a video camera spending a lot of time filming feet. That wrinkle, I'm told, went out the door pretty quickly, but the event still remains fairly high concept: A series of DJs or live electronic acts try to put butts on the dance floor, while a local artist creates something in a corner or against a wall. At midnight, a local rap act performs three songs. Spies tell me I've been missing out — that, increasingly, the kids come out full force, sometimes in costume, and everyone dances. So I'm going on Friday, particularly because a new band, briefly known as Bad Balance until members discovered “the NWA of Russia” already had dibs on the name, and now as of press time, nameless, makes its debut. It'll mark Moving Front front dude Jeremy Brasher's return to electronic programming for the first time in four or five years (fantastic news for anyone who was around for his dance jams back then). This go-round, Lydia Washburn and Erin Lang augment his blips and beeps with vocal harmony. Also on the bill: astro-crunk Conway DJ Wolf-E-Wolf (frenetic remixes of Southern rap), DJ Fatality (straight-up hip-hop) and rappers 4X4 Crew. Series curator TJ Deeter will be responsible for the live art. The show's open to all ages. Cool shoes are no longer required.
