Show at Yale and Congrats to Giles!

This is a quick post. I'm doing a show at Yale this evening to bring awareness to mental issues in the Asian American community. Hopefully the roads are not too crazy and I will make it there in one piece. if you are in the area, please come by to 44 Broadway New Haven CT. Here is the flyer:

Also I wanted to wish on behalf of Yellow Rage our friend Giles a happy congratulations on the birth of his twins with his wife Sopheak. When we were up at Tufts we got a chance to hang out and take pictures with Giles for a little bit at his workplace at the Community Center near Chinatown.
He looked exactly like an expectant father - but in a good way - and nonetheless was doing well, and we were glad to see what it is he does on a day-to-day basis when not writing or performing poetry. Congrats Giles!

Under Construction and Next Shows

Hey beautiful peoples!

If you're on the East Coast, hope yall are staying safe and warm through our second blizzard in a week! And if you've been trying to pass the time by checking out the latest in Yellow Rage news, you probably noticed that we got a new look for our website--'bout time, huh?

Yeah, so as we start pulling things together and finalizing our pages and features, please be patient with us, and we hope you'll keep checking back to see what we've added. The goal is to make the site more user friendly and to keep info, including pics and events, current and accessible.

Anyway, here's some updated pics from recent events. First pics from our show at Columbia College Chicago back in Oct '09.

Special thank you to Laila Alchaar for emailing these pics the other day.

Also, I went to check out Harvest last week, and they posted photos of me (along with other folks who got on the mic--including Lindo from my poetry fam) on their website: Here's one of Lindo:

Special thank you to Spoken Soul 215, including Just Greg and Lyrispect, but most especially Vision for always making me feel so welcome at Harvest and always offering me a spot on the mic.

Here's one of the photos they posted of me. The lighting is a little funny, but it turned out ok.

Damn, I look pissed, huh? :) Anyway, if you'll be in Philly next month, Tues, 3/2, Harvest will be celebrating their anniversary at World Cafe Live.

Next events for Yellow Rage:
