Wednesday, May 21 2008
For eight years, native speakers and other people who can hold up their end of a literary conversation in Spanish have gathered at the end of every month, in the back room of the Mission District's famous workers-collective bookstore.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
