Reggae Bar: A Punk Story (tags)

Almost every often and awhile, from 2008 sometimes nervous that the restos would over-reserve, thinking that Pat Benatar or Screw Driver was boozing around the area where a reggae bar was located. Too many visitors and standbyers were around the vicinity, so cheering when some of them like unsocialized rapport or a crying baby in a city that never trust. Just like a night of the living dead when you turn on the radio and it’s not Friday, that you were deceived by a beggar. A lots of Germans come around here since last month and until now, near Remedios Circle in Malate Manila, beside that thirty-seven floor skyscraper along the road directing the mall to Padre Faura, abounding around the stretch of the avenue are some other foreigners of different nationalities. The reggae bar in the city, the wooden walls with native designs on it and the unleveled flooring gave the aspects of it the abberance but explicity and half open to the road as cars run by the front. The people are adjusted behaving very comely, drinking beer made in the Philippines or sometimes tequilla as it is served by shots, with toast’ regularly requested by New Zealanders and Iranians. Mito Paling, a German immigrant usually stopover babbling with his grandfather who used to wonder about him when esteeming for a hardcore band named Septic Tank and that saying “nevermind the Sex Pistols here comes Talkative Lampshades”. Hopped out from the taxi and staring from the pavement, bathed so lovely like a vicious hooker, Mito looked very agitated while seeking for a possible CNN reporter or some kind of cybercop volunteer that would fix his curiousity. More bourgeois men steps back and fourth on the thin concrete path, rocks around along, others overlooking from the left or from the right surveying empty tables and chairs. Some of them were malicious on women craving for thirst. Some are crustcore like Mito, accidentally or traditionally accessing to the scene where nobody ever knows or ever mentioned about the fad. The German ordered another round for his friends but his bonafide sincere conviction suggests a slamdance flicking gag that almost reminds of the 1986 rumored gigs, that he’s 42 years old.

Joshua Napier: Singer, Songwriter, Queer Activist Brings Passion to His Music (tags)

The first thing you’ll notice when you hear Joshua Napier sing is the sheer emotion and passion he projects with his music. Napier sings with an edgy intensity that makes you identify with him and his songs. What’s more, though he’s a political activist and writes topical songs, he has the knack of the best activist songwriters of combining the personal with the political and creating pieces that reflect his beliefs instead of hitting you over the head with them. Napier is equally passionate off-stage. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio and raised by a single mother, he was out as Gay in high school. One of the reasons he came to San Diego was to find an activist community with which he could work. Active as the membership chair of the San Diego Alliance for Marriage Equality (S.A.M.E.), he recently left that group’s board to join the board of Activist San Diego (ASD) because he wanted to work with a group that isn’t just focused on Queer issues. Catch him wherever you can — at fundraisers, coffeehouse gigs or the “Redfest” event of politically aware music he’s planning for this summer.

In fact dogmatic certitude that there is “one” significant way (my way or the highway) to interpret the debate is itself a red flag.

Through the Roof: A Play about New Orleans, California, and "Natural" Disaster (tags)

Through the Roof: A Natural History—A New Play with Music about "Natural” Disaster—will be performed on Monday, March 5th, at 7:00 p.m. in downtown Los Angeles, at the Central Library’s, Mark Taper Auditorium, at 630 W. 5th Street, Los Angeles. (Phone: 213-228-7000.) A professional staged-reading of a new play, with live music, by award-winning dramatist Rick Mitchell, directed by Hope Alexander, music by Max Kinberg. Through the Roof chronicles the adventures of two people who meet on a rooftop in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans while escaping rising floodwaters from Hurricane Katrina. The pair inadvertently travel back in history, to New Orleans and California, and discover that race, gender, and natural catastrophe are never far removed. The play is based, in part, on recent interviews with disaster survivors (especially of Katrina), as well as New Orleans and California history. An audience talk-back follows the show. Produced by the Central Library (Literature and Fiction Dept.) and the College of Humanities, California State University, Northridge. The play reading is part of a California Stories project entitled: “Natural Disaster: California, New Orleans, the World” (www.calhum.org), and the project is supported, in part, by a grant from the California Council for the Humanities. For further information contact: Stacia Black (818) 677-3441 (or stacia.black.86@csun.edu)
