Tuesday Night is here

Once again on this third Tuesday of the month, The Tuesday Night Cafe returns for another great evening of art and expression. Whereas the last episode featured a lot of longtime TNC favorites, this week features a lot of fresh names some people may not be familiar with. Janet Cruz, Jason Oymun Fong, Kiki Inomata, and Liane Tominaga are just some of the exciting talent coming by, and as always the Open Mic will be available.

Don't forget that this show will at Lost Souls Cafe, NOT at the usual Aratani Courtyard/Union Center for the Arts (in front of East West Players). Enjoy selections from their unique menu or take advantage of their free wi-fi while you take in this Tuesday Night's entertainment.
