Every month Milonga Le Chat Rouge will feature well-loved DJ' s including in-demand DJ' s from NYC, and beyond. Our industrial atmosphere is unique in that we feature the multidisciplinary work of Paul Walcott which creates an ambiance all it's own (Urban industrial Arts aesthetic, custom lighting etc), along with the work of a featured artist every month. Boston and especially the cutting edge South End is a ripe for this expansion of Tango. We will host you with victuals and sustenance. And as Boston's first dedicated Argentine Tango/ Art Space we will keep you interested and stimulated and eager to return each month.
THE FLOOR IS SMOOTH, THE SCENE, LIVELY AND SEXY, FINE SOUNDS, and the cats only purr and do not bite.
PARKING and Directions, and T
450 and 460 Harrison avenue is right before Berkeley Street heading toward China town. It is part of the SOWA arts district (South of Washington Arts). There is a free lot at 500 Harrison for visitors to the Gallery. There is street parking on Randolph 1 block toward Mass ave. and on all adjacent streets. We can get some parking passes for the lot behind our building off Albany street but they cost $5, so you might rather use the street parking.
If you enter the courtyard from Albany street end of Randolph, (the Thayer Courtyard) and walk half way up toward Harrison, the Gallery's on the RIGHT are 450. We are the lower level (under the walkway) and the last gallery in the corner, #61. You will see a huge Tango sign and MOVIMIENTO SIGNS. We face the courtyard. If you get to a giant Lobby sign, you have gone too far. (Coming from Harrison ave, we are on the LEFT.
The silent auction is open for bids now and culminate at the GALA MILONGA. The auction includes donations of quality photography, painting, Paul's famous clocks and lamps, services like an hour professional massage, yoga private lessons, a Maddy Gersh haircut, a Private Pilates session w Rosaly A., Private lessons with area teacher including Armando O., Carlos M, and Moi, , DVD’s by Fernanda and Guillermo, Tango clothes by Martha Costano, and from Alla, shoes, and more. Who knows what else will surface by then… The complete list is on FB http://www.facebook.com/events/166989340092042/?ref=ts&fref=ts
THE SOUTH END
The South End is a vital and diverse part of Boston with a demographic we are well positioned to tap, thereby expanding the reach and the appeal of our beloved tango.
Our SOWA (South of Washington Arts district) Gallery features a
huge free parking lot behind the gallery, and lovely and funky restaurants walking distance from the Milonga. (The Galleries are open Saturday till 5 and you can make a
day of this fantastic burgeoning Arts district.)
