Genius Party

The Pitch may be 30, but it can still throw a hell of a party. Case in point, Artopia, the early spring soiree that honors our MasterMind winners, showcasing artists and featuring local bands and DJs while the party people sample food and drink. This sixth annual Artopia offers five areas of live art, fashion and music. This year’s talent includes Baker Medlock, Sike, Connie Ehrlich, Metal & Nail, Steve Higgins, Miss Conception, Rhythmic Flames, Aaron Sutton, James Jukes, Pigment Pie, and the Jimmy Project. Latino-flavored indie-rock band Making Movies, DJ Jochen and Brent Tactic, Not a Planet, Jenny Carr and David George provide musical distraction. General admission is $30 at the door. VIP tickets are available for an extra $10 and include early entry (at 7 p.m.) and a swag bag. All guests must be 21 or older. See for more details.
