So I haven't performed poetry in MONTHS. Yet somehow, I am booked to perform at two awesome events and venues this coming weekend!
On Saturday, March 3rd, I will be performing at Eastside Cafe
in El Sereno (eastside) for Sketches of Empowered Women
! Along with me will be performances and artwork by Lionness
, Irene Diaz, The Sirens, Las Jaroxicanas, Llamadilla, and Carolyn Cardoza. For more information, check out the Facebook Event page
On Sunday, March 4th, I will be performing at Beyond Baroque
in Venice with Abraham Greatson and Steve Abee, one of my favorite contemporary poets whom I owe $10 still for his books. For more information, check out the Facebook Event page
I actually have a piece called "Love This Because Steve Abee Inspired You To (And You Still Owe Him $10)"
. Maybe I'll perform it on Sunday in front of Steve Abee! It's inspired by a piece of his called "You Must Love This"
in his book Great Balls of Flowers
Anyway, hope you can make it to check out some of my spoken word this weekend!
Love and respect,
Sumiko aka soul.in.my.fist
Here's a new song I pieced together! Enjoy?
