Border Crosser 

Wednesday, Jan 14 2009
John Gibler, the author of Mexico Unconquered, has spent years writing and reporting on social justice issues in Latin America and the U.S. for news outlets like KPFA, Znet, and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. So he knows his stuff. The new book focuses on our neighbors to the south and what they've been up to in the past few years; specifically Zapatistas, Oaxacans, and electoral-fraud protesters in Mexico City. He reads from the book tonight, and shows photographs as well. Joining him are Flamenco-influenced band LoCura and singer-songwriter Valerie Orth.

The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
