I've been to the art walk in downtown LA a few times before, but this past Thursday was the first time I got to take my time and enjoy the experience. Out of respect to the artist, I didn't post any photo's of any art work (except for images of the protest). But from these photo's you can see that the art walk soon turned into the "ate walk" (as the dapper dames now call it , lol). Art walk goes down every second Thursday in downtown LA. Swing by next time, get inspired, meet new people and grab a bite to eat from one of the many food trucks! Check out the photo's, see you next month.....

I feel blessed to be surrounded with such talented people. Mayda del Valle, Def Poet & member the Rock Steady Crew (I told you, we're not just bboys & bgirls) will be performing an excerpt of her one woman show at the Greenway Court Theatre (544 N Fairfax Ave Los Angeles CA 90036); Not sure what the cost is, but I'm sure it won't be too expensive. Either way, it's a good to support! Show starts at 10:30pm Wednesday July 7th.

Salida is a work in progress that explores culture, traditions, memory, and the wounds and stories women inherit from their mothers. While trying to break free from her mother’s expectations and restrictions, a daughter uncovers their shared longing for a way out and establishes a healing connection to the grandmother she never met.

Fiesta Tropical

I met DJ Sloe Poke when I was 17 years old at the Bboy Summit in San Diego, since then we hit it off. When DJayin was just a dream, he believed and encouraged me since day one. We've seen each other grow artistically & personally. I love this dude, Happy Birthday DJ Sloe Poke!!! Come celebrate his bday/cd release party with us at the Rhythm Lounge in downtown Long Beach!
