2nd Annual PALABRAZOS Festival of Literary Performance - Friday, May 1st - FW, Tejas

The upcoming PALABRAZOS Festival of Literary Performance
will be taking place this coming Friday, May 1st, 2009,
at Embargo Bar - 210 E. 8th Street - downtown Fort Worth.

Free and Open to the Public.

This is the SECOND annual PALABRAZOS, and we are no less excited this year to present some of the most compelling performing poets of Texas and beyond.

Natasha Carrizosa and Joaquin Zihuatanejo, both based in the DFW Metroplex, will kick off the Festival with their poignant and riveting tales of bicultural life and urban tribulations.

We will also be featuring two poets from Santa Fe, New Mexico: Mary Melisse Mier and Angelo Jaramillo. They are both theater artists, playwrights, and poets.

As well, we are excited to be hosting Da'Shade Moonbeam, an award-winning nationally-ranked slam poet and hiphop performing artist.

Three video poems, by artists from San Antonio and Santa Fe, will be screened as part of the Festival.

We hope you will join us in this exciting display of contemporary performance literature.
