FM magazine brings on the future at the hi-dive
New Year's Eve means the future is almost here, and to welcome that sci-fi time yet to come, FM magazine and Automatica Media are bringing The Future Party to the hi-dive and Sputnik tonight.
"The future is our theme," explains FM's Tuyet Nguyen. "I suppose it sort of plays into New Year's, starting the new year off and going into the future."
Don your best futuristic garb -- jet pants and mirror shades are highly encouraged -- and head down for a night of music, fun and looking forward with DJs El Brian, DreDay and the Gay Sunshine collective, plus the indie hip-hop of Bunny Rabbit and Black Cracker. "Bunny Rabbit and Black Cracker is like M.I.A. meets Peaches -- a little darker, even," Nguyen says. "They're lesbian emcees from Brooklyn. They're actually kind of adorable."
The party starts at 9 p.m. tonight at the hi-dive and Sputnik, 7 South Broadway. Admission is $8 and includes a champagne toast at midnight, but you can still get into the Sputnik side for free if you're so far into the future that the imminent depression has already wiped you out. For more information, visit the hi-dive's website or call 720-570-4500. -- Cory Casciato
