KCRW and OCPAC present: Uptown Underground OC
This Saturday night, the Orange County Performing Arts Center (OCPAC) and KCRW are hosting a giant dance party—under the stars. And it'll run until midnight! (In Orange County, imagine that!)
After a successful Uptown Underground in downtown Los Angeles last year, KCRW is bringing the event to their brethren here down south. Jason Bentley—you know, that KCRW DJ who hosts the electronic pulse-filled "Metropolis"—will DJ a live set of what the press release assures us as "urban beats and hypnotic rhythms."
The dancing, the music and the beautiful outdoor setting will all be set to David Michalek's outdoor installation Slow Dancing—basically larger-than-life, ultra slow-mo video portraits of world renowned dancers that will be projected onto the east façade of the Center's Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall above the community plaza. The dance portraits will span from ballet to even krump-ist Lil C.
Tickets are totally free and open to the public—no RSVP required. After the jump: More preview images!
