See Island talent at Satsang Lounge


Satsang Lounge is a modern day cabaret series Misi Lopez Lecube began in New York City at the Westbeth Theater Complex in 1998. After moving to Los Angeles, Calif., five years ago, Ms. Lecube revived the series, which is now in its second year at The Bootleg Theater.

The cabaret has stayed true to Ms. Lecube’s original goal: to create open, ongoing performance space where local artists can present new works to an audience while in the company of other experienced professionals.

This Saturday evening at The Yard in Chilmark, Island artists and musicians, writers and filmmakers will be showcased in a performance-driven evening that begins with live music and an art/cocktail reception, then transitions into a theater segment, where short films, dance, and performance are alternated in the mix. The evening ends with bands, deejays, and dancing.

This is the first Lounge that Ms. Lecube and co-producer Lizzy Kent, of West Tisbury, bring to the Island. Dubbed On the Road, this show includes Lexie Roth, Colin Ruel, Tim Laursen, Gardner Allan, Janis Vogel, Chris Laursen, Jessie James, Adam Petkus, Amy Leonard, Robert Parker, Aljosa Daumerie, and more. The show starts at 6:30 pm.

Tickets are $12; $10 in advance by emailing or through Facebook: search Satsang Lounge. For more general information, visit
