Queer People of Color Duo Serve It Up for Cinco De Mayo: Spoken Word Meets FUNK

Posted By QWOC+ Boston on May 3rd, 2011

THE BASEMENT w/ London Bridgez and Live FUNK Band
Thursday May 5th | 7-11PM
19+ (no exceptions)
Church | 69 Kilmarnock Street, Boston MA

On Thursday May 5th, Spectra Events Basement Series, a monthly live music showcase of artists who push against boundaries (followed by a strictly non-mainstream international dance party), will feature London Bridgez, a nationally-touring local artist, who fuses music with poetry, and is embarking on a summer tour across the country. Many Boston-based artists jump ship to New York the minute they see traction, but London has remained loyal to her beantown fan base for years. It is no surprise that she chose Boston as the city to host her summer tour kickoff show, and a roster of talented local artists (including Micah Domingo, HipHop MC and the founder of Interseqtion, a newly launched networking platform for queer artists) to join the roster of performances.

While many Bostonians will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo with shots of Tequila, London Bridgez will be spitting poetry to live FUNK music at CHURCH, Kenmore square’s infamous live music venue. Known for her interactive performances, London is asking her fans to submit one-liners in response to the question, “What is Poetry”, during the ticket purchasing process, in order to create a one of a kind piece, “Poetry is…”, which she will perform during her show on Thursday.

The show is 19+ and starts promptly at 8PM. Tickets cost $12 in advance online at http://londonbridgezkickoff2011.eventbrite.com/ and $15 at the door. Group discounts are available for parties of 10 or more. Email spectra@spectra-events.com for more info.

A limited number of press passes are available for media professionals. Press inquiries can be forwarded to spectra@spectra-events.com, or call 617.682.6482.
