Danceability has always been a crucial part of pop music throughout the ages, but which decade -- the '80s or the '90s -- had the songs that can still make modern feet move? That very question will be answered in one night at The Fillmore as Biz Markie and several top cover bands curate a stream of hits from both the '80s and '90s. Markie, a beatboxer and rapper known for his 1989 Top 10 song "Just A Friend," plays host and DJ while '80s cover band The New Romance and '90s cover band Here's To The Night open and close the lineup with expert renditions of your favorite dance-worthy songs from their respective eras. Hosted by HOT 99.5, Washington DC's Top 40 and pop radio station, the Fillmore Flashback will prove once and for all which decade had the best tunes. Learn More

A very good lecture by two mid-career architects building in places like Argentina, Shanghai, Italy and LA. They were informative, insightful, and very imaginative.
The only reason I didn't give this a 5 is that the lecture accompanied an exhibit at the museum. Unfortunately the lecture began after the gallery closed. Would have been nice to be reminded when purchasing the ticket to arrive earlier to see the exhibit.
