TJ to LA
Tonight at 826LA, you can hear LA Weekly blogger Joshua Bearman, Josh Kun (UC Riverside Prof and new music label head) and Salvadore Plascencia will read from their separate books and essays that, in some way, speak on the mixing, melding and clashing of cultures north and south of the border. Free refreshments from tu ciudad and photos by Yvonne Venegas are also on the menu! The reading begins at 7:30 PM and you can rsvp here.
