Much like First Fridays, the ICA Boston lures us into their after-hours on other nights of the week with the promise of dancing, entertainment and long uninterrupted ogling opportunities of their artsy offerings. Upcoming includes live DJ sets for a series of soirees on the water featuring Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs, Beirut bassist Paul Collins, Shannon Funchess of Light Asylum and DJ Windows 98 AKA Win Butler of Arcade Fire.
