Post celebration to be held at House of Loom 11 pm - 2 am!

For six years loom manifested as a dance event where people of many colors, orientations and ages gathered in a peaceful assembly. From its monthly-first-Thursdays home-base of España Tapas Bar in Benson, to various one-offs at institutions such as the Joslyn Art Museum, Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts & Love's Jazz & Art Center, loom has served as a positive social medium for bringing people together. Event theme's have jumped continents and timelines, celebrating diversity across the board, including the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., Brazil's Carnival festival, Nigeria's Fela Kuti or various dance arts.

Last summer loom moved into House of Loom — a lounge & nightclub concept with a focus on music, dance, art & community located at 1012 South 10 Street.
