Sun Dec 13: "Watch Your (Mestizo) Mouth"

As part of Albuquerque Now: Fall, the Albuquerque Museum (2000 Mountain NW, see links below) hosts Mestizo Mouth on Sunday at 2 p.m., showcasing the best slam poets and spoken word artists this side of the Rio Grande. Actually, make that both sides.

Lobo SlamIf you show up to the museum between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., admission is free. After that, the cost is $4 adults, $3 New Mexico residents.

Mestizo Mouth is a mutli-voice collaboration of Albuquerque-based performance poets – Hakim Bellamy, Carlos Contreras, Cuffee, Damien Flores, Lee Francis IV, Jessica Lopez and Kenn Rodriguez.

Mestizo Mouth is an outgrowth of these seven poets’ work as part of both the championship Albuquerque Poetry Slam team and the University of New Mexico’s LoboSlam Collegiate poetry slam teams.

Mestizo Mouth is dedicated to creating spoken word and performance poetry that expands the boundaries of both while working from a platform where poets expand the idea of what performance poetry looks and sounds like. 

Their current untitled show “ABQ Now” is their first collaboration as a large group
