From the listings desk: Two art organizations, two milestones, one week.
Celebrating 30 years, the Galleries of Contemporary Art will host Brilliant, a snazzy-looking affair, from 7 p.m. to midnight on Saturday, June 9. The evening will include two stages of live music, food, dancers, "light art" and a live auction. Tickets run $35 to $40 ($20 for students with ID) and include two drinks and a one-year GOCA membership. Best of all, proceeds help GOCA plot and pay for next year's shows.
It all takes place at GOCA 1420 on the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs' campus, 1420 Austin Bluffs Pkwy.
Next, clocking in at three years old, the Modbo will honor its birthday at 8 p.m. on Friday, June 15, with "an amazing night of musical chaos." Think collaborations between bands, between genres. Edith Makes a Paper Chain and local musician Andy Tanner will both play sets, as will musicians from Colorado College's Summer Music Festival. (Read more about that here.) Following that, they will all mesh and collaborate for another few sets. Get in with a (suggested) donation of $7.
