ICA: DJ's on the Harbor - 8/12

8/08/2011 10:02:00 PM
So I went to bed last night super early, woke up at 5am, looked outside into the darkness and thought to myself "there's no way I'm going running right now."  I have no will power when it comes to running.  It's horrible.  But at least I did go for a run after work today.  That was no picnic either, but at least I was awake.  

The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (ICA) presents DJs on the Harbor, for three Fridays in August. In conjunction with The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl, the ICA brings some of the best DJs around to the ICA’s Putnam Investments Plaza on Boston Harbor for a night of art, music and dancing. (Program moves inside in case of rain.) Music and dancing start at 7:30 and go until 11 p.m. Patrons are encouraged to stroll through the ICA’s hit exhibition The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl. The Water CafĂ© will be open for drinks and light food. Tickets, which include museum admission, are $15, or $10 for members and students.
