Announcing our newest patron perk: First Tuesdays

This season, Rattlestick is launching an artist salon series called First Tuesdays. On the first Tuesday of each month, we’ll partner with a local bar in our West Village community to host an intimate evening of cocktails and conversation featuring Rattlestick-affiliated artists and friends. The best part? The first round is on us.

Our fall First Tuesdays lineup will feature artist talks and performances from Emmy Award-winning actor and producer John Leguizamo (Freak, Shesus) and hit indie band Chicano Batman, Drama Desk Award-winning actor Michael Urie (Buyer & Cellar), and Obie Award winner Arturo Luìs Soria (Ni Mi Madre). We’re thrilled to offer this exclusive membership perk to strengthen the relationship between our West Village community, audiences and patrons, and Rattlestick artists and alumni.

Due to limited capacity, First Tuesdays is not open to the general public. If you’re interested in attending a First Tuesdays event, you can join our Patron Program at any level to receive an invitation. Members will be invited to at least one First Tuesday event during the season.

First Tuesdays and member discounts are made possible by the Victor and Clara C. Battin Foundation.
