I have been working from Tucson this week, as my parents help me celebrate clients Flam Chen on the opening night of The Fisher’s Wife: A Pyrotechnic Fish Tale at Mercado San Agustin Annex Festival Grounds (just being finished as I type this)!
If you go
What: Flam Chen’s The Fisher’s Wife: A Pyrotechnic Fish Tale
When: Doors open at 7 p.m. Show begins at 8 p.m. April 19, 20, 26-28
Where: Mercado San Agustin Annex Festival Grounds, 267 Avenida del Convento
Cost: $25 each or $45 for two tickets, $10 for children at the door. VIP seating is available for $50 a person.
This is an exciting time for my hometown. The market district is an expansion of the Mercado San Agustin, led by Kira Dixon-Weinstein, executive director of Mercado San Agustin at the Gadsden Co. they are bringing 13 new locally owned businesses such as Hermosa Coffee, Beaut Burger and Westbound housed entirely in modified shipping containers. The festival grounds will provide a versatile new venue for concerts, festivals and community events. I am happy to say this means more Tucson I my future!
Another event that was new to me was the Tucson Poetry Festival. I attended a workshop and made a new friend who introduced me to his friend, Jake Feinberg. Jake hosts a radio the show Powertalk 1210 which revolves around the 4 L’s (Leadership, Love, Life and Lineage). As you may know these are 4 words I hold near and dear. I learned that Jake has interviewed many of my friends, clients past and present and many others I admire. My turn in the chair is Thursday April 19.
The Henry Gross interview provides great opportunity to hear Jake show off his love of music, life and lineage. My client Henry, like all of the artists I admire has quite a charmed past. Listen below to hear for yourself.
