Ticket sales go towards our writer fund. Our ultimate goal is to pay all our writers for the content they bring our readers.We are a 501(c)(3) and donations are tax deductible.

One of the best things about living in Boston so far is that I joined the Big Red Board (we don’t call it that but), who, along with the dedicated VOLUNTEER STAFF, are the best people around doing exciting things in the arts community. I know most of you who read this tumblr aren’t in the area, but if you like art, or writing, or writing about art, or parties, or all of the above, please share this with friends who might be interested and stay tuned for when you can drop $20 on a ticket and join us on September 5. It’s a Friday. There will be beer. And art. And cool people.

And if you’re looking for an arts event in the wider Boston area (or to advertise something): Listings are here.
