The Fast and the Curious

Over-caffeinated? Suffering from ADD? If you have a short attention span, you're just the person Lauri Lynnxe Murphy has in mind for her latest project, SlideSlam. Tonight, she's giving artists five minutes each to talk about anything they want — as long as every individual talk involves no more than ten slides, one video or light performance art. It's like the Gong Show, but for artists. The first twenty people to sign up will be guaranteed a spot on the stage at Capsule Art & Event Center, 560 Santa Fe Drive, sometime between 7 and 10 p.m. Since no reservations are accepted, chatty art types should turn up at 6 p.m. to reserve their slots. They get to speak their piece for free; bystanders each shell out $5. Get the gong ready! For more information, call 303-623-3460.
