Tuesday Night Cafe - April 7, 2015 - Season Opener!

  • National Center for the Preservation of Democracy 111 N Central Ave Los Angeles, CA, 90012 United States (map)

Tuesday Night Project presents:

The 1st & 3rd Tuesday Night Cafe

Come kick off the 17th season of Tuesday Night Cafe, one of the longest running free public arts series in downtown Los Angeles. Now the longest still-running Asian American mic series in the country, TNC highlights new work in visual and performance arts from the Los Angeles and Asian American artistic community in Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo.

Raining on the first show of the year is quickly becoming a tradition. We're moving the show to the National Center for the Preservation of Democracy at the Japanese American National Museum!

It is:
-Techically at: 111 North Central, Los Angeles, CA 90012 but it's not right at streetside.
-Across the city parking lot behind the Union Center where we hold our shows! Walk alongside the theatre building, turn slightly right, and walk that way!
-It's next to the Japanese American National Museum!
-It's where we had our season opener last year!
-We'll have signs in our space guiding you there!
