Don’t let the name fool you. Julie Akerly and Matthew Mosher’s [nueBOX] is a performance art venture very much outside the, well, you know. The program works with emerging resident performers and installation artists to facilitate their development and serve as a launch pad for burgeoning careers. Mix and mingle with the program’s first-ever artists-in-residence, including Jordan Daniels Dance and sculptor Mitchell Keaney, who will perform and present their works during the [nueLAUNCH] Happy Hour at First Draft Book Bar inside Changing Hands, 300 West Camelback Road. DJ Brockelmonster will supply the “chill grooves” during the social soiree, which runs from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, February 5. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the event. One beverage is included with the ticket price. Visit for more.
