Spine of Califas Poetry
Thurs- Oct 24 @ 7pm – ARTS 111
Your heart beats at the speed of the spoken word pulsing with the rhythm of California Interstates 5, 15, 405 and Route 78. You¹re on the road with Taco Shop Poets Adolfo Guzmán-López, Adrián Arancibia, and Tomás Riley as they rhyme and rap from San Diego and L.A. to San Francisco¹s Mission District, and then back south through the San Joaquin Valley to la linea/the border. Willie Herrón and Jesus Velo, better known as Los Illegals, the legendary East L.A. punk rock band will provide the music for the trip.
Changing faces, marching words, to brown skin brown eyes watering. The words by the numbers. The poems by the street. The freeway poems. Clashing lights.
The Spine of Califas.
Book and CD signing will follow the performance
