Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

The acronym in the name of this unconventional Loft District event space stands for “Mausoleum of Contemporary Art,” and it’s not some sort of hifalutin metaphor—this building actually served as a showroom for a family-owned tombstone/mausoleum-making business that operated until the 1960s. Nowadays it’s anything but dead. The building, which still boasts its original, slightly-unsettling-but-very-cool exterior, is proudly multipurpose, host to hundreds of events a year ranging from live music and film screenings to burlesque and poetry readings.
