“Feel the Nosi” at the CSV

Come on out to the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center next Saturday for “Feel the Nosi,” an evening of poetry, performance, Nuyo-son and noise. Edwin Torres and myself will be celebrating our latest books, Yes Thing No Thing and Hi-Density Politics, and performing material from the books backed by the trademark soundscapes of Spanic Attack’s new in-house band Los Guapos Planetas.

WHEN: Sat. Jan. 29, 7pm

WHERE: Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, 2nd floor theater space
107 Suffolk Street (between Rivington and Delancey St.; F train to Delancey St.)
Lower East Side

WHAT ELSE: 5$ cover; cheap drinks, discounted books, great space, post-show revelry

This is the first of what will hopefully become a regular series of Spanic Attack events at the CSV. Do spread the word!

“See What I Mean” at Taller Boricua

Last Friday was the opening of the “See What I Mean” exhibit at the legendary Taller Boricua in El Barrio. I have two BlackBerry installations on display, one of which also appears in text-only version in my new book. I performed at the opening with the great Monxo López on guitar. Jorge Suberví skillfully accompanied Monxo on the pandero. Edwin Torres added improv choreography for that righteous Noricua kick. A great time was had by all.

The exhibit is up until mid-January, and I will also be reading January 13 as part of the Taller Boricua poetry series.
