The Love Language will play The Silver Factory Gala after-party at Top of the Hill in Chapel Hill. A benefit for The Ackland Art Museum exhibit and education programs, The Silver Factory Gala is an avant-garde evening of fine food and drink, performances, live music, and dancing at the Top of the Hill and the Ackland Art Museum, all in the spirit of Andy Warhol's Silver Factory.

Picture the scene: Art is being made on the floor and the walls around you, you're rubbing shoulders with poets and musicians, the room is abuzz with an air of celebrit...A photographer snaps pictures of the crowd...Silver balloons float by...

7:00 PM -- The GALA begins at the Top of the Hill -- enjoy delicious food, signature drinks, instant photos, live music by the Shakedown, on-site portrait making by artist Louis St. Lewis, and silk screening by Ron Liberti.

8:00 PM -- The Ackland Art Museum opens its doors to all GALA ticket holders and guests may move between the two venues (mind the paparazzi on the red carpet!). The evening continues with Warhol-inspired screen tests, period music, gallery tours, and poetry performances by The Sacrificial Poets.

10:30 PM -- THE AFTER PARTY begins. Enjoy great food and free beer at Top of the Hill. Local indie-rock legends The Love Language perform at 11 PM. A midnight dance party includes Deejay Pez spinning a specially-curated mix of the best dance tunes. Stay until 2:00 AM and party knowing that daylight savings gets you an extra hour of sleep!
