INSTALL WeHo: I’m Performing New Material With Apt 3F at Queer Pop Up Art Village

 What are emerging artists emerging from?
I’ll be reading out of the back of Apt 3F’s U-Hall truck with my
friends Hank Henderson and Ryka De La Cruz. No, I don’t have a new girlfriend, the U-Hall’s will serve as our whacky pop-up stages. It will be just like a hipster food truck festival except that instead of Korean Mediterranean fusion wraps we’ll be serving up oily paper plates piled high with the genius of emerging artists!
Please come out as it’s sure to be a fabulous show and also I could really use your help figuring out what emerging artists are emerging from.
I’ll be opening up the show at 12:15p on the Apt 3F stage.
