Your heart beats at the speed of the spoken word pulsing with the rhythm of California Interstates 5, 15, 405 and Route 78. You’re on the road with Taco Shop Poets Adolfo Guzmán-López, Adrián Arancibia, and Tomás Riley as they rhyme and rap from San Diego and L.A. to San Francisco’s Mission District, and then back south through the San Joaquin Valley to la linea/the border. Willie Herrón and Jesus Velo, members of Los Illegals, the legendary East L.A. punk rock band, will provide the music for the trip.
Book and CD signing to follow the performance.
Co-sponsored by the UCLA César E. Chávez Department of Chicana/o Studies, UCLA Department of English, UCLA Department of World Arts and Cultures, UCLA Division of the Humanities, UCLA Division of Social Sciences, MEChA de UCLA, and UCLA Library.
