Tuesday Night Cafe is the longest-running Asian American performance series in the United States. For more than twenty years the series has provided a stage in L.A.’s Little Tokyo for musicians, singers, poets and other performers to try new material. But TNC is more than just another venue for a gig — it’s also deeply rooted in community, collaboration, and a sense of history.
