A night at the museum

Move over, Sam Ramey, there’s a new Timur in town.

And a couple of luck parterre readers will be there to witness the group’s “post-kitsch underworld glamour” (Flavorpill LA)

The first two readers to email tickets@here.org with the subject line “Timur and the Dime Museum – Cher Public” will receive a pair of tickets to the following performance:

    I cannot get into the test chat room. My computer freezes up for a minute, and then I get a message that Parterre.com is not responding.
