Good evening my lovely friends. I haven’t been up to blogging much over the past – oh – 8 months or so.
It’s been a steady fall, I’ve featured at Eggroll Cafe in Lowell and at the Asian American Center at Northeastern. And I’ve got a few more coming up, with info below. Many of these require tickets for entry, but you all are smart internets users, so if you’re interested in one of these shows, use the google to find your way in. You can also try hollering at me, but I don’t know much about anything ever anyway. So without further Bob McAdoo:

Asian Americans in New England Research Initiative
University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT
A lot of old and new friends are presenting at this conference, and I’ll be performing during a plenary in the afternoon. In additional highlight to me is that there’s a photo exhibit by The Terrible Child of Asian American poets up at UConn in which I am included, but I have never seen. Other faces in that exhibit are fellow verse/us heads Bao Phi and Kelly Tsai, as well as the great Regie Cabico and many others. So I’ll get a chance to peep that for the first time.

Beats, Rhymes & Rice
Boston College, Boston, MA
I think it’s me and Vudoo Soul back together again. We go way back. Dude sang at my wedding. He stumbled up drizz to my apartment the day he got his record deal. We saw Prince in concert together. More memories to be created this night.

“Got Shorts?” program at Boston Asian American Film Festival
Paramount Theater, Boston, MA
I star in a short film about a spoken word poet who is much less talented than he thinks he is. So it’s basically about me in real life. It’s called the Humberville Poetry Slam and will be playing as part of the Boston Asian American Film Festival “Got Shorts?” program this night. I’m going to be participating in a Q&A session immediately following the program.
Friday, November 19
Loyola University, New Orleans, LA
Loyola brought me, Bao and Kelly there last year for a verse/us show, and I guess we rocked it because they want to bring us back once again! Never one to pass up a trip to one of the greatest cities in the country, we’ll be doing it up N’awlins-style one mo gin.
A couple more are in the works. So keep your eyes peeled, and we’ll see you on the other side of this!
