A Cultural Salad

One of the great things about Pineapple Grove's Arts Garage is that it suffers from cultural schizophrenia: A classical-music performance one night could yield an underground hip-hop show the next; divas in drag could pave the floor for a scorching blues act. The one-night fundraiser Grunge & Glamour celebrates the Arts Garage in all its multiple facets by throwing them together in a highbrow-on-lowbrow orgy of talent. There aren't many opportunities to witness break dancers and graffiti artists sharing a space with opera singers, portraitists, and classical violinists, but this unpredictable smorgasbord is one of them. Ticket buyers will have plenty to nosh on while observing the dichotomies, as heavy hors d'oeuvres will be offered by So­Lita, Max's Harvest, City Oyster, Papa's Tapas, and Tryst. The event starts at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, and tickets cost $75 or $125 for a couple. The Arts Garage is located at 180 NE First St. in Delray Beach. Call 561-450-6357, or visit artsgarage.org.
