We are a little behind on reflections but bear with us… (grr)
Almost a year ago in June when we were first starting out we featured at a Tuesday Night Show and it made our life. We had heard about TNP and were familiar with their history so featuring there felt like we were entering the big leagues. This year TNP invited us back to feature for National Poetry Month on April 17 and it made our lives again!
This was a special show for us because we were featured in celebration of National Poetry Month and that’s what we do! It felt good. Eddy and Stephanie performed “Are You Listening Now?”, Stephanie did “Chalk Days” which you can find in our chapbook, Mark did the classic “Realization” (on our CD), and we closed with our Asian American group piece which we have finally named! Curious as to what it’s called… come to a future show and talk to us!
Major props to the other poets, Cold Tofu, and Dawen who brought the music! Special shout out to Zulay and Allan. Their set was so cool and Zulay and I had a shouting contest after the show about who was more awesome. She totally rocked it with the sign language to Allan Aquino’s poetry. All in all a really good night… a night in which our lives were made.
Tuesday Night Project is a very, very, very cool open mic venue that takes place in the courtyard of a church converted into a theater. They always feature very talented Asian American folks so go to there. Actually, the next one, June 5th is going to be featuring common ground so I will be there fosho! Come out and support local talent and if you cannot go, stream them live online.
