setlist | artworx la ‘gala29’

Much love everyone who tuned in to the La Junta LA Instagram Live earlier tonight for my dance party set celebrating the Artworx LA Gala29 fundraiser! Hope you had the chance to boogie a bit!

After only one brief shutdown by the IG powers that be, we were able to save the last 22+ minutes of the rhythmic, high energy set. They took me down for playing a cover of Nina Simone‘s ‘See Line Woman’, shortened to just ‘See Line’ by Toli & the Femm Nameless [clenching fist!]. I’m bummed that two-thirds of the broadcast was lost, but at least we have the uptempo part still. Catch in on La Junta’s IG feed @lajuntala.

For the several folks that messaged me after my set, here’s my set list below. Thanks for asking and happy hunting!

ORIGINAL MURAL: AUDREY CHAN

Hey, Happy May!

If all goes well, our SALA events will hopefully begin to take place in real life, live and direct! For now, though, we still gotta play it safe, and so our virtual event returns on Zoom this coming Saturday, May 8th at 8:30pm.

It’s another stellar lineup of activists, visual artists, poets, thespians, musicians, and deejays coming together–as we have during much of the pandemic–to elevate your spirits while you socialize from home.

This month, our featured artists celebrate Mothers’ Day, International Workers’ Day, and Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, so invite those mamas out there to Zoom in!

  • JOLLENE LEVID (AF3IRM), Opening Remarks
  • AUDREY CHAN, Visual Art
  • IRIS DE ANDA, Poetry
  • SESSHU FOSTER & ARTURO ROMO, Fiction
  • PATTY CACHAPERO, Solo Performance
  • NANCY SANCHEZ, Live Musical Performance
  • GLENN RED & REYES, Resident Deejays

Plus, be sure to move that furniture and stick around for the dance party!

As always, it’s a FREE event…just visit our Facebook event page to grab the Zoom meeting link. Virtual ‘doors’ open at 8pm; full program beins at 8:30pm. See you on Saturday night in your salas!
