The San Jose Museum of Art presents eclectic, hip programs on the first Friday of every month geared towards San Jose's younger adult audience. The programs take place between the hours of 7pm and 10pm, and feature one of the Museum's current exhibitions, live music, DJs, poetry, performance artists, and other on-the-edge experiences. Funky drinks at a no-host bar, light snacks, hot new art, and engaging gallery activities complement performances. The In Flux program is totally free for Museum members, with a nominal cover for non-members. All attendees receive a "Fluxpass" which is good for free admission to a downtown club later that same night.

Friday, April 5 El Mambo Combo
Dance to hot Latin grooves, salsa and Latin jazz! El Mambo Combo, one of the best bands around, will make an appearance at IN FLUX on April 5. El Mambo Combo has appeared with such stars as Pete Escovedo and Eliados Ochoa of the Buena Vista Social Club, so don't miss this chance to hear them at SJMA! They will start with Latin jazz at 7pm and, beginning at 7:30pm salsa lessons to live music will be offered. After a break, the band will cut loose from 8:30pm until 10pm. Don't miss this great opportunity to heat up the dance floor, practice some new moves, sip a few margaritas to cool off, and tour the galleries! Sponsored by KBRG Radio Romantica

Friday, May 3 Mo'Fone
Enjoy the creative new jazz sounds of Mo'Fone. This unusual combination of two saxophones and drums experiments in the uncharted waters of improvisation and genre mixing. A different take on jazz and funk, the group combines traditional elements of both, but takes them in non-traditional directions. Mo'fone plays many original compositions, as well as New Orleans brass band (without the brass), Jimi Hendrix (without the guitar), and many sounds out of the funk and jazz traditions. Led by drummer Jeremy Steinkoler, Mo'fone also includes Larry De La Cruz and Jim Peterson, who play multiple horns - often at the same time!

Friday, June 7 Sister Sock Show
In celebration of San Jose's Gay Pride Festival, check out the Sister Sock Show. This zany San Francisco-based performance troupe, founded by Sister Dana Van Iquity and Sister Kitty Catalyst, has performed at counter-culture events throughout the Bay Area and beyond. The Sister Sock Show is known for forced audience participation, projectiles and poorly executed narrative (in their own words!). In between performances, dance to the sounds of DJ Pusspuss - disco ball required!

Shoot! Artists Answer the Questions You've been Dying to Ask.
On four Friday nights in April and May, SJMA will host 2-3 California artists included in SJMA's permanent collection exhibition for a series of lively and revealing gallery discussions. The series is being organized in conjunction with the upcoming exhibition Is the Medium the Message?: Contemporary Art from the Permanent Collection. Organized as a sequel to Collecting Our Thoughts: The Community Responds to Art in the Permanent Collection, this new exhibition and these gallery talks seek to continue the dialogue with Musuem visitors that began in summer 2001. We will continue to explore the questions and issues raised by our own community - so critical to the understanding of contemporary art - such as the role of beauty, identity, simplicity, materials, and irony in visual culture.

You can email your questions to the Museum in advance at, or just bring them with you to the discussion.

Seating is limited and reservations are required for each night, so call now! Priority will be given to SJMA members. Please call (408) 271-6887 to RSVP.
