2012 was great. A few things to look forward to at the top of 2013:
a song with Joe, a song with Crescent Moon, and a song over a Lazerbeak beat for a Doomtree contest. They're a special collection of artists, and it should be a great show. It'll also likely sell out, so get your tickets now.
Brave New Voices youth poetry festival. If you're a teen poet between the ages of 13-19, you can show up to ANY or ALL of the prelim slams, share a couple of poems, and get a chance to advance to semis. The dates and locations are on the flyer above, and there's more info at our Facebook page. Additionally, if you are a teacher, youth worker, or just know people who might be interested, please spread the word.
3. A random note: Guante & Big Cats were selected by Reddit users as a "Best of 2012" spotlight artist. I only occasionally use Reddit, but it can be a very powerful tool. If you're on there, we appreciate any upvotes or posts or whatever. It was a great way to cap off the first phase of our promotional push.
4. I'm not particularly interested in releasing any album-scale musical projects any time soon, but I HAVE been making songs with Dem Atlas, Lydia Hoglund of Bomba de Luz, the Rube and Katrah-Quey. Something to look forward to.
5. I have a ton of Spring college gigs all over the country being processed right now. If you want to bring me to your school as a poet, rapper, workshop facilitator, lecturer or whatever, definitely get in touch. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and hopefully we can work something out.
