For this month’s talk on CHAOS we are proud to host @xicana.brava as our speaker! Join us on September 28th 💥
Michelle Cruz Gonzales, drummer and lyricist of the all-woman punk band, Spitboy (1990-1995), featured in Green Day’s Turn It Around: Story of East Bay Punk, is the author of The Spitboy Rule: Tales of a Xicana in a Female Punk Band. She is also an English professor at Las Positas College where she specializes in ethnic and dystopian literature, and teaches composition, literature, and creative writing. In addition to the Spitboy Rule on PM Press, she has published in magazines, anthologies, and most recently at Latino Rebels where she asserted that Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird is largely plagiarized from the 2002 Latina penned film, Real Women Have Curves.

In the shadow of the senseless murder of #NiaWilson, a faction of white supremacists thought they was gonna gather in downtown #Oakland…only folks who showed up were counter protesters, artists in solidarity, and this BIG ass banner… #LoveOverRules — view on Instagram

#Oakland! 🎉 Set an intention to join us next Friday, we have the incredible Ensemble @miknawooj speaking on the theme of #cmINTENTION, at our host this month #EBMUD. 🎟 Tickets are up on Monday at 11am, don’t miss em! 🎟
Want a sneak peek of #EnsembleMikNawooj? They’re performing Thursday night (tomorrow!) 6-7pm at @lathamsquare! 🎶 See you there!
Led by composer/pianist, JooWan Kim, Hip Hop Orchestra Ensemble Mik Nawooj (EMN) creates New Concert Music by sampling principles of Hip-Hop and Classical. Executed with MCs/lyricists Do D.A.T. and Sandman, a lyric soprano, flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano, drums and bass, the music is rigorous, nuanced, accessible, and free from the dogmas of Western European concert music aesthetic.  The result is seamless tête-à-tête with “textures swimming through the sound…like the world’s fastest ping-pong game” (Pitchfork) and is considered the “cutting edge of hip-hop” (Huffington Post). .

Attention #Oakland! July’s theme is #CMintention! It was chosen by @nashville_cm and illustrated by @nikdaum
This month it’s all about seeing closely the intention behind every action, project, or even a sassy tweet. How do we get better at turning our intentions into actions? 🤔

Come explore with us on July 27th! 🙌🏼 — view on Instagram
