Mix, mingle, drink, people watch and art gawk. I always enjoy the Blanton’s First Friday evenings of art. Here is the scoop, straight from their website:

B scene: B cool

Art is boss.

Things Heat Up with Birth of the Cool.
Friday, March 6, 6 – 11 PM

Celebrate the opening of the much-anticipated exhibition, Birth of the Cool, at B scene—the Blanton’s monthly art party—with an evening of art and music devoted to 1950s West Coast style. Austin’s funky soul-jazz trio Time Out get things going at 6:30 PM in the Smith Building. At 9 PM, don’t miss a special performance by Blaze (Nu-Jazz/Funk/Experimental), voted Best Jazz Band in Austin for eight years in a row by the Austin Chronicle. Plus, groove to music by DJ Chicken George, as he spins in the atrium all night long, and enjoy tours of the new exhibition, art activities, free appetizers, a cash bar, and more. Cost: $5 members / $10 non-members. Buy tickets online or at the museum.

If you need an excuse to get out and shake that ass, this show is guaranteed to be one of the best dance parties of the year. These electro-rockers from down under know how to get all the too-cool-to-dance-in-public Austin kids vibrating like little Mexican jumping beans. It’s at Stubb’s and it’s affordable. $21.50 after the plethora of fees. Get ‘em here.
