After dozens of amazing artists had performed, and following LA bands Quetzal and La Victoria, I got to share two poems and an excerpt from “Vete a la Chingada Party” at the first-ever South East Los Angeles River Arts Festival in South Gate, CA.
Over 2,000 people attended: babies, bike riders, punk bands, a tortoise, grandmas, my younger brother, and so many more beautiful beings.
