Join us and maybe perform your own poetry, theatre, music! We are searching for original music, songs, poetry, spoken word, story-telling, drag, and all forms of performance in celebration of Lower East Side History Month. All languages, backgrounds, and identities are welcome! The LES History Open Salon will feature a band made up primarily of musicians with a history of performance in the LES who have had an important impact on LES culture. The salon will be lightly curated with featured artists who have a history of performing on the LES and/or are from the LES as well as artists who develop work that explores and engages with Asian American history.
All folks interested in performing may sign up, preference will be given to folks with personal connections to the Lower East Side (from 14th Street to Canal, from Bowery to the East River) and with Asian American history.
