Ready to kick off another fantastic film festival? Then join us at Discovery World for the 2013 Opening Night Party.

This year's main event: the Milwaukee debut of the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. This New York-based brass band-- consisting of legendary jazz trumpeter Phil Cohran‘s eight sons-- has performed with everyone from Mos Def and Gorillaz to Prince and legendary Afrobeat drummer Tony Allen. They’re also the subject of one of this year’s Sound Vision documentaries, Brothers Hypnotic.

This year, they'll be performing alongside DJ Bizzon (WMSE 91.7FM), the Florentine Opera, DJ Madhatter (88Nine Radio Milwaukee), Evan Christian, Dead Man's Carnival, and visuals from Video Villains.

Every party-goer will receive two free drink tickets courtesy of Bacardi and Grolsch, plus light appetizers, popcorn, and a chance to win great raffle prizes like a Milwaukee Film Membership, a $500 MOJOFUCO restaurant gift card, and a Maxie's Southern Comfort Packer Party for 30.
