PREVIEW – THE WORKS

THE WORKS is where TBA goes after dark. Where artists wind down with a drink, and where dance parties dissolve into the night sky. Rock shows, drag balls, video art, TBA Kitchen, mock reality TV shows, and more. Ten nights of experimental happenings, performance, music, and film. It’s an after-party where everyone’s invited, a moonlit summer nitery, a warehouse venue that transforms with each new day.
