Beats After Sunset at the Bass Museum: Free Drinks, No Cover, Silent Disco Tonight

The Bass Museum's monthly part, Beats After Sunset, regularly brings in the young, artsy set for a boozy soiree in a cultural setting. But this month, the party's getting extra pumped, thanks to a one-time collaboration with Fiat.

As part of Fiat's series of "Urban Surf Parties," the brand is helping to amp up the Bass's regularly scheduled arts happy hour with free entry, free booze, and -- get this -- a "silent disco."

The words "silent" and "disco" might seem mutually exclusive, but not so. Here's how it works: Tonight, DJ Seamstar will spin danceable tracks for Bass Museum guests -- but you'll only hear the music if you're wearing a pair of wireless headphones tuned into the feed. The result: a bunch of culture lovers rocking out to music only they can hear, like a real life iPod commercial.

Think of it as performance art.

There'll also be a live DJ blasting tunes though traditional speakers, for folks who don't want to give up conversing while they groove. The night's drinks are sponsored by Reyka Vodka, and the Bass will have a live mixologist on hand stirring up complimentary beverages to loosen you up for the dance floor.

The party starts at 8 p.m. and runs until 11 p.m. at the Bass Museum. Afterwards, guests can head over to Rokbar for an afterparty with another hour of free drinks from 11 p.m. to midnight. Call 305-673-7530 or visit
