Friday: Get Your Life! X Balti Gurls: Video Premiere Party

May 20

If you aren't familiar with Get Your Life!—the youth-run video production group of middle school students, practicing artists, and institutions—you should start catching up now, because these kids could become the next Pipilotti Rists or Joan Jonases or Jimmy Joe Roches. You can watch their videos on the GYL website. One of them is like a video game set; on a purple mountain with strange anthropomorphic foxes, a kid wearing a very intensely-jagged superhero costume talks about his powers, such as "Lightning, it is white, it can really shock you!" In another, Queen Chastity Crystal Enchantment II makes a speech at the Inner Harbor (via green screen) about her plans for Baltimore, which include making homes out of vacants and giving them to the homeless. Come check out the premiere of the first season of "The REAL Artists of Get Your Life!," with performances by Balti Gurl DJ Genie and the 901 Arts Drumline. 5-7 p.m., the former Peale Museum, 225 N. Holliday St.,, free. (Rebekah Kirkman)
