Located across the street from the Kansas City Art Institute, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art (4420 Warwick, 816-753-5784) attracts a constant stream of college-age aesthetes. Tonight's Late Night University
event, from 9 p.m. to midnight, rewards these regular visitors for their patronage. Jametatone (gallery-circuit fixture J. Ashley Miller, inhabiting his latest persona) provides the entertainment, and the venue supplies food, beverages and prizes. Jametatone describes his project as "deep groove music for the sub-basic." Judging by his album, Evolove
, that means bouncy dub, electronic dance beats and friendly vocals. Jametatone will remix Evolove
live, presumably making the grooves even deeper and more sub-basic-oriented. Late Night University is free, and art connoisseurs of all ages can enroll because no one's checking student IDs at the door.
