The Party Pix - TNKAT

Kudos to the Tuesday Night Cafe Project and everyone who worked the 10th anniversary celebration of THE PARTY last Saturday night at the JACCC Noguchi Plaza in Little Tokyo. Big props to Traci Kato-Kiriyama, woman extraordinaire, Mama Kat, for her dedication to the project for the past 10 years.

Having attended fairly regularly in the early days, even sharing some of my own poetry back in the day, it was nice to go a few weeks ago to see that they are still community minded, fun and talented group of artists, activists, and young folks really committed to community artists and sharing an arts space that continues to be relevant, cutting edge, irreverent (I saw Kristina Wong streaming from home last month) and cultural (I went to see Emily Lawsin a few weeks ago for my first time back at Tuesday Nite in over a year). Anyways, here's a piece written about the event in the Pacific Citizen and some pictures from the evening's fundraiser and celebration.
