This weekend, the de Young Museum will present an evening filled with cultural flashbacks centered on the 60’s. If you haven’t already stopped by the museum on a Friday night, then you’ve been missing out on the live music, poetry, dance, films, and lectures that takes place after the sun has set. The entire museum stays open until 8:45pm, where you can sip a cocktail, enjoy a special Friday Night dinner, or pass the time creating your own masterpiece.

On February 27th, 2009, you will encounter the French flair of Bardot A Go Go, the “longest-running Francophilic swinging sixties experience” in the world. Prepare yourself to enjoy the sounds of frat rock, soul, and of course, French pop. The night also brings a special appearance by the Girls of Go Go Mania, who will certainly inspire you to embrace a 60’s dance or two.

Additional festivities include opportunities to create wearable art with Kim Erickson (6pm – 8pm at Wilsey Court) and a film screening of Basquiat (1996), which tells the tale of the unforgettable artist Jean-Michel Basquiat (7pm at Koret Auditorium).
