Tonight The Brass House will host a fundraiser for Barrio Writers, an organization that consists of free workshops & additional “Café Hours” (one-on-one tutoring) throughout the academic summer break & monthly cultural arts events during the school year for teens.. The fundraiser entitled, “Día de los Vivos: A Fundraiser for Barrio Writers” is themed with the unique quote, “Pray for the dead, and fight like hell for the living,” by Mother Jones. The event is open to the public and a suggested donation of $5 per individual at the door tonight.
The event will feature live music from Como Las Movies, Leticia Rodriguez, MiTrova and OmarrAwake from 8 p.m.- midnight. The evening event will also include special guest appearances by local artists presenting youth readings on behalf of the published youth.
The Brass House is located at 115 San Jacinto Blvd. The proceeds of this event will go towards the Spring publication and Summer 2015 writing workshops. This event is sponsored and co-hosted by by Barrio Writers, Red Salmon Arts, Brass House and Omarr Awake.
