I wanted to get in touch with yall and invite you out to participate in another Barrio Massive at Sam's Burger Joint on September 9th. Bombasta will be hosting the event again, this time we'll be joined onstage by Gonsemble (live hip hop soul de SA) and Rebel Crew (electro latino beats & rhymes de Houston/NYC). We'll also be joined by DJ Joe B (Houston) and breakdancing by Bboy Voodoo and crew (San Anto). So needless to say, this is gonna be a great show and I'm hoping everyone will be able to come out and participate.
I am currently reserving spots for any activists or vendors who would like to set up a table on the patio to either sell your wares or pass out information about your respective causes. As always, there is no house fee and two free admittance passes will be granted to each organization that attends. We've had great success in the past and this event has always served as a great opportunity for networking and making some money (vendors). For those of you who would like to participate, send me an email and we'll reserve a spot for your org. We only ask that you provide your own table, extension cord and arrive to set up at 8pm.
We are also inviting poets/spoken word artists who would like to participate onstage during the night's event. There are limited spots throughout the night- during breaks or ontop of the musical performances, where some spoken word consciousness would be greatly appreciated. If you are interested in participating, send me an email and we'll reserve a spot for you.
This is an open invitation to yourself or any other activist group, vendor or poet that would be interested in participating, so if you know of anyone who would be interested, please have them contact me. Barrio Massive is an attempt to bring us all together to celebrate art, music, life and resistance. We've had numerous people come to the shows in the past and the crowds have always proved to be very open minded and eager for change. I think this is a great opportunity for us all to come together and show some solidarity and celebrate La Vida Buena with friends, family and new collaborators. It's always a pleasure and honor to work with each and everyone of you; your attendance to these events is an important part of what we are trying to accomplish with Barrio Massive: Collaboration, Culture, Community and Activism!!!
