The homies from the Royal Jokers Car Club here in the Yay Area are back again with their Spring/Summer Cruise Night! The first of this season will be this Friday March 5th at the Giant Burger @ 22nd and Telegraph in Downtown Oakland from 7-10pm. It's always fun to chill with the homies, eat a burger, drink some hyphy juice out of gas tanks, smoke a blunt, listen to some oldies, and look at dope ranflas. Come through if you're around the Oakland Art Murmur this friday night.

This coming up Wednesday March 3rd, 2010 will be the opening reception for the "Two Four Homegirls Circa 1980" art show at The Mission Cultural Center in the Mission District, San Francisco. I'm hella hella looking forward to it, for it reaffirms my decision to follow a career in curating. This is exactly the type of show I would love to put together... it's what I love, so I'm sure I could rock it curator steez! I grew up in the greater L.A. are and have been in the Mission since my late teens, so I definitely represent for La Mission. If you're around I definitely recommend you check this show out... it's gonna be hella firme! (details below)
The Tiny Locas, "You and I" dances, and the Low-rider cars represented rites of passage and the social scene for teenage girls in the 24th/Mission neighborhood of the early 1980's.
"Two-Four Home Girls" is curated by Clare Haggarty in collaboration with Sandy Cuadra and Vero Majaro. It features photographs by Sandy Cuadra- a former Tiny Loca who has lived in the Mission for over 30 years - with memories of dancing, cars, parties in the park, and tight friendships. In addition, footage from the Mission Film Archive further activates the world of Low-riders and the " You and I" dances. Vintage posters to promote those dances, made by Mitchell Salazar, also hang in the gallery, and complete this nostalgic look into a particular period in the Mission that speaks to the former teenager in all of us (Mission Cultural Center website).

My homegirl Amanda Lopez had her big solo show at Upper Playground Sacramento a few weeks ago, so the homies and I took the trip up there to support her, and experience it for our selves. Miss Amanda Lopez, We are so proud of you lady!!! and Yes, this is only the beginning girl!!! Sorry I didn't take any pictures, I was too excited, and Amanda had this bomb Almond Tequila that made me taking pictures pretty much impossible... but below is a dope lil video of the show. Congratulations Amanda!!!
