‘Y sigo mi vida con risas y penas”
the smoking lovely tour officially kicked off at 13 with a jammed packed crowd. recipe for an amazing evecing– combine free admission, free snacks, all star “closed” mic, and perdomo reading. for a second, you might have thought it was a lost episode of acentos with rich, flaco, anthony morales, jayme, & john rodriguez reading and willie featuring but not really… what i am tryin’ to say is that whenever there is a louderJAM it gets kinda mixed together with what synonymUS was… not with this show. acentos has its own personality and just having a bunch of latinos onstage at 13 doesnt turn it into an evening at the blue ox. just sayin’.
even better was the late night dance jam that followed which had me trippin’ down memory road to the good ol’ days (how lonmg have i been around this scene again?) of celebrating spoken word with some good foot stompin’.
