Last night culture buffs congregated at the New York City Opera for the L Mag’s second Act 4 event, featuring kick-ass indie pop musicians Active Child. A ticket to Strauss’ Intermezzo gave opera-goers access to our all-expenses-paid after party — that’s right, free booze, free concert.
Though the angelic vocals and delicate harp-strumming of these former choir boys are more Strauss’ style, Active Child’s 80’s synths turned the theater into a hopping after-hours spot. Partygoers enjoyed free cocktails as they lounged, shmoozed, and jammed out to some awesome harp-rock.
Unfortunately for you, this was the last Act 4 event of the decade. So if you missed this year’s events and love freebies (you already know we do), be sure to mark your calendars for March 24th, 2011, when the third installment will feature Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love followed by a special guest performance.
