From the weblog of Luis J. Rodriguez, March 26, 2007:
I’m glad to invite everyone to the grand opening of Tia Chucha’s Centro Cultural this Saturday, March 31, from 4 to 8 PM. It will be at the new space that we’ve finally painted and organized after we were forced to vacate our old store/center in Sylmar (the new location is only 10 minutes away from there).
This will be an easy-going evening of food, poetry, raffles, and presentations by our instructors and some of their students from our various workshops, including Son Jarocho Mexican traditional music, Guitar, African Drumming, DJing, Reiki Healing, Danza Azteca, Mexikayotl Indigenous Cosmology, and more. Books will also be on sale as well as sign-ups for our events and workshops.
Your humble servant will be your host.
We will also be starting our regular schedule for “Noche Bohemias” (guitar, song, and poetry, mostly for our Spanish-speaking community), Open Mic (poetry, Hip Hop, Song for anyone), Film, and more (this schedule will be available on Saturday).
The new space is nice and clean, located at 10258 Foothill Blvd., Lake View Terrace, CA 91340 (on the corner of Foothill and Wheatland, in front of the Number 91 Bustop). Our new phone number is 818-896-1479.
Please join us as we try to re-weave the amazing tapestry of song, dance, words, theater, art, and ideas that temporarily unraveled with our move. However, we have the regenerative power as community to start anew, to continue our important work, and to prepare for better days ahead. You’ll love our new space.
