With the March event having been our most well-attended show thus far, SALA returns on Saturday April 10th with another marvelous lineup of literary, visual and musical artists!

It’s a heavyweight roster, including Favianna Rodriguez (art), Lorna Dee Cervantes and Richard Montoya with his father José Montoya–representing both the future and brilliant past of LA Chicanx poetry, respectively.

Additionally, since Earth Day falls in April, we’ve invited young climate activist Riddhi Patel (Sunrise Kern) to speak on the topic of climate change and environmental responsibility.

Musician Ángel Garcia, aka Mezklah, rounds out the roster of live performances with a short set featuring his signature ‘SpiderMonkey Beats’. All this jumps off before the always highly anticipated dance party with deejays Reyes and yours truly, Glenn Red, gets lit!

The Zoom virtual ‘doors’ open at 8pm with the full program beginning at 8:30pm. As always, it’s a FREE EVENT!

See you on Saturday night!
