If you thought the Occupy protests were a sight to behold, imagine living in 1789 Paris. Storming a prison to challenge the king’s reign makes public chanting and tent cities look awfully cordial by comparison. Tonight, we salute those riotous revolutionaries with the French Cultural Center (53 Marlborough Street, Boston, 617.912.0400), which is celebrating its 37th Bastille Day Party. From 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., the epic dance party will take over Back Bay’s Marlborough Street between Berkeley and Clarendon. Expect performances from lightning-fingered guitarist Diblo Dibala and Franco-funk band Sarazino, plus gourmet French munchies, beer, and wine. Reserve your tickets ($28) at frenchculturalcenter.org.
