Artopia 2013: How to Party With Palo!, Roofless Records, and Miss Elaine Lancaster

Get a pic with divine drag queen Miss Elaine Lancaster.
Come for the pretentious, arty stuff. Stay for the booze, Afro-Cuban funk, experimental freakouts, sports jams, drag queens, break dancing, and, uh, more booze.

Once a year, New Times throws a big, ostensibly highbrow bash called Artopia. And officially, it's "an eclectic touch of art, culture, fashion, food, music, and film" during which the MasterMind Awards (i.e., $3,000 in cash prizes) are handed out to local artists who show promise in the arts community.

Unofficially, though, it's a freaking rager.

Palo!
Once you've loaded up on Artopia's "complimentary food, wine, cocktails, and beer," go baila bonkers like abuelita after a supersize pitcher of mojitos when Palo!, a funky Afro-Cuban five-piece, sets asses of every age a-shakin' with its Yoruba party music.

Roofless Records
Zigzagging between Churchill's Pub, galleries, backyards, garages, and the Arsht Center, Roofless Records is a high-concept curatorial operation (and previous MasterMind winner) that releases vinyl albums, puts on punk/metal/other shows, and masterminds experimental freakouts of every order. For Artopia, the Roofless crew will present Radio Test #2, "a brief, fictional aural occurrence" involving "one scene, one hero, three hypotheses, anti-finite possibilities."
