If you didn’t get the chance to catch the last Asia After Dark event at the Freer Gallery of Art, now is your chance to make it up by attending Bhangra Night on Thursday, July 15.

Spice up your summer and listen to “Bhangra’s Ambassador”, the internationally renowned DJ Rekha, and sample some delicious speciality cocktails – all the while also exploring the current exhibition, Arts of the Indian Subcontinent and the Himalayas.   All you have to do is follow the suggested attire (style, colors, and accessories of India) and purchase a ticket (available online or at the door).

You must be 21 years old and with a valid ID to attend.

The Freer Gallery of Art is located at 1050 Independence Avenue, SW.  For more information call 202-633-1000.

If you thought that our post on the Hirshhorn After Hours was interesting, then perhaps this event may find you well.  On Thursday night, the Freer and Sackler Galleries will be hosting a similar event called Asia After Dark, Tibetan Twilight.  You can enjoy music via DJ Chris Linux or see Tsewang Yangzom perform traditional Tibetan songs, while also taking in the artwork of Gonkar Gyatso with a drink in your hand.

Interesting note:  The suggested attire for the event is to wear blue, red, white, green, and yellow – all significant colors in Tibetan Buddhist culture.

Asia After Dark will be held at the Sackler Gallery on Thursday from 6:30 – 10:30 PM.
