Support Equilibrium, lyrics essay, See More Perspective, random news

1. Hey-- first of all, you can donate to Equilibrium here.  If you don't know, EQ is one of the best spoken-word shows in town.  Creating a space for spoken-word artists-of-color, EQ has won all kinds of awards and consistently puts on a great show.  In these rough economic times, they need support.  Check out this video too:

2.  Our show last night at Honey went really, really well.  It was beautiful to see so many people from so many different scenes and communities come together.  Hopefully, there'll be some photos up soon at MN Mic.

3. I wrote a point/counterpoint on the importance of lyrics over at Reviler.  Guess which side I'm on.  You can read it here.

4. Friend and label-mate See More Perspective if FINALLY releasing his album, "Architextual Design."  The release show is scheduled for Hell's Kitchen in Minneapolis on December 3 and I can honestly say that it's going to be one of the best shows we've ever put on.  Not announcing the lineup or sponsors just yet, but please mark you calendars.  The album is phenomenal, and this show is really going to be something special.

In the meantime, check out some FREE stuff that See More has released at the Boombox Emporium.

5.  There is just SO MUCH going on right now.  I'm involved in a dozen different projects, between music and poetry and activism and youth work and residency stuff and just life in general.  For more up-the-minute updates, follow me on Twitter or get at me on Facebook.  Thanks!
