Tango With the VPS

Posted By on Wed, Aug 26, 2009 at 1:11 PM


Ever feel a wee bit intimidated going to a Vinyl Preservation Society meeting? Like the copy of Rumours tucked under your arm surely isn’t going to impress anyone, let alone earn you any cred among VPS regulars?

Well, tonight the VPS is venturing into here-to-fore uncharted music nerd territory. They’re hosting a Latin night. Complete with Argentine tangoing.

While there will surely be some rare Joao Gilberto picks crackling on the record player, the fun part will be watching attendees attempt fancy footwork in their ratty Chucks.

Here’s the schedule:

7 to 7:30 p.m.—Social Gathering
7:30 to 8 p.m.—Argentine tango presentation by the Boise Tango Society
8 to 10 p.m.—Open Play: Latin Night

Bring any of your Latin or Latin-inspired records to the Modern Hotel Bar in the Linen District tonight and don't forget the rose to clutch in your teeth.
