10 top things that kick ass (in no particular order)
1. Sol Fest at Macarthur Park- it is peace to see so many people in the artist movement in one place! Vendors selling dope art, organizations passing out information about what is going on in our communities, families, hip hop heads, hippies, activists, actors, artists, musicians, graff artists, bboys/bgirls, the rasta van with the mobile dj, spoken word, elotes, vegan food, tamales, cotton candies, children “kissing” people with gerber daisies… ugh, I can go on and on. PEACE TO: balagtasan collective, faith santilla, native guns, kmb, fil-am arts, mr.grizzly from woolies,, meadow, Elijah, james from deity, Daniel and Mario from anahuak clothing, the moreton brothers, sutol clothing, evolve clothing, strich 9, medusa and feline science, and the dude who ran the elotes cart!
