Check your answering machine, read the flier, spread the word! Letter of Marque’s famous themed shindig is back from the future-past with a new play, a live game show, and pre/post analog dance beats. For free!

Experience a virtual New York City, 1988 in a subterranean avant-music club that’s packed to the pores with talent, grime, and performance party atmospherics!

You can “attend” the party by RSVP-ing with a free ticket or watch from afar on our live stream. Party outfits always encouraged!

Watch the live stream premier of LOM's newest play created with "Billy Martin" (Medeski Martin & Wood).

A story reflecting NYC’s boundary-pioneering “downtown” music and art scene and how the legacy echoes into present day. Written for a digital stage by Nolan Kennedy. Following the live performance, creator Billy Martin, the playwright, director, and cast will hold a brief Q&A with the zoom studio audience.

And, then, GAME SHOW! host by comedian, "Chris Duffy!"

A live competition for the coveted Swordraiser trophy sword! Yes, the winner of the night will be shipped a blade which only a lucky few have held the likes! Multiple rounds to determine the winner, plus an ongoing audience costume/zoom box parade. Prizes for the best dressed, best dance moves, and more from Alewife!

Then, DANCE your excitement into the night with a DJ set!

Wanna be a contestant in the live game show? When you reserve a free ticket to the party, you'll receive a link to a short Google form. Fill it out to throw your name into the hat! Contestants chosen on a first come basis! The fight for the sword is on! Will you be the next winner? Game registration ends June 8th. It’s now or sword-never!

Not only will you benefit, but donations will be given to TWO charities! We are benefitting a BK based company and an Atlanta based company. Giving love to both the north and the south.
