There were some doubters….

Monday, May 11th, 2009

when we made the call to go to Bossa
sun shining
but as the soaked stumbled in
we all just grinned.

Thanks to Bossa for the shelter and the special treat of being downstairs!!!

Laurie kicked us off with Hopi Elder words calling us all to be leaders.  Damian spun his rhythms waking up from the American Dream, while Lacy lived in the margins watching the empire collapse.  Jess, over 30 and f-ed, freestyled on train tracks, Sarah hung on by a fingernail in the much larger ocean of the universe, inspired by Jess’s train, Jessica found her light in the darkest places and talked to us about the Saartjie Project.  Brandon SCREAMED from the paper keeping his sh-t together like a stapler and Emily renovated the past knitting in patterns.  Princess of Controversy, the evening’s feature, brought self love into the conversation reminding us, you can’t press forward when you’re stuck on rewind.  Ted demanded justice for the windmills turning in Amy’s OPP mind, John and Gordon (aka Lucky Dub) brought us a little love via acoustic reggae complete with back up singers (catch their CD Release Party Friday 5/15 at Asylum).  Tiffany lamented the demise of her guard railed crush and Jackson Poleock dispensed everything he had inside —  killing the inner addict and letting the habit be the tablet.  Weaved throughout the entire evening were the sound stylings of our resident percussionist Ken Quam.

Gratitude and love to you all!  Now let’s hope for some f-ing sun in June!  Join us Dupont Circle, Monday, June 8!
