Latin-tinged soul in #NoDa tonight, live Body Embellishment

The Body Embellishment exhibit, which opened Saturday, made me see tattoos in a more artistic light. I have always appreciated the skill of the artists, but the new Mint Museum exhibit is an example of how this former symbol of rebellion is now mainstream. Heck, I think it’s more rebellious not to have a tattoo these days. Programming around the Body Embellishment exhibit, which includes nail art, jewelry and fashion, continues throughout the month. Today, there’s a CAD (Contemporary Architecture + Design) lecture by fashion design group threeASFOUR (Gabi Asfour, Angela Donhauser, and Adi Gil). 3 p.m.   $12 or $5 for Mint members, free to teens and college students with ID.

Here's a peek at the opening reception:

Old School Soul - I can’t wait for tonight’s show! According to Courtney’s Soundbites, The Suffers is the next buzz band in the old school soul revival. See for yourself below, and then go experience the band live. 8 p.m., Neighborhood Theatre, 511 E. 36th St., $10.
