Remember when manipulating the turntables was a pastime that belonged to the down-and-out mixmaster from da hood? Nowadays, rich kids are getting in on the act, too. Lindsay has done it, so has that Gastineau brat and even that ’70s show guy who now goes by the dj name “dj MomJeans.” But it seems that Steve Aoki, aka dj Kid Millionaire and brother to supermodel Devon Aoki as well as the heir to the Benihana throne, is one rich kid with the skills to pay the bills, not that he needs the extra cash.


MoCa’s site:

Whether providing the indie soundtrack to his wildly popular Tuesday night at Cinespace in LA or dropping the biggest party hits at Hollywood’s LAX and NYC’s Marquee, Steve Aoki’s reach is ever-expanding.  Between treks around the country, he runs Dim Mak (home to Bloc Party and The Rakes), one of the most respected indie labels, and promotes his own nights in LA & NYC, which feature bands looking to make it. 

And on Saturday, July 8 at 8pm, Mr. Aoki will be gracing MoCa’s special summertime Night Visions series with his presence, spinning for the masses for free (well, with the $8 admission to the museum). In the Ahmanson Auditorium at the same time, they will also be screening music videos from the L.A. Film Festival.

Those who want to stay up past their bedtime at 10 can check out Michael Blackwood Productions’ Robert Rauschenberg: Retrospective — a 45-minute film on Rauschenberg’s life, from his earliest experiments during his student years to a retrospective of his work in MoMa in NYC.

Entrance to NIGHT VISION: MOCA After Dark is FREE with museum admission, $8 general, $5 for students with I.D. and seniors (65+) and free for children under 12 and MOCA members.

On another note, MoCa offers free admission every Thursday, 5-8pm.
