We Choose Art has been doing some very fine art-centric event curations at the Montalban the past few years, often with a progressive social perspective, and always with cocktails. Friday night’s RAINBOW SHIFT: A Queer Homecoming Celebration will be the fourth edition of its totally joyful LQBTQ-awareness series, and features not only visual (sculpture, craft, drawing, painting, photography) and performance art but also writers and community organizers, curated by Baha Danesh and Tiger Munson.

Getting there early is a good idea, not only because with advance tickets your first drink is free before 9 p.m., but also because energetic art performances from Planet Queer and Miss Art World start right at 7 p.m.

The Montalban Theater, 1615 Vine St., Hollywood; Fri., Sept. 6, 7-11 p.m.; $10-$15. facebook.com/WeChooseArt.
