I am always looking for something fresh, something different to do on a Friday night.
Trust me, my days of clubbing until the wee hours of the morning are way behind me. And that’s only because my body punishes me HARD the next day. ????
I have discovered something beyond amazing though, and you MUST check it out.
The best thing about this show is that it’s local, one man, and FULL of sick beats, witty humor, and so much talent- it can barely all fit in the room.
Where Did WE Sit On the Bus is written and performed by Chicago’s very own David Quijada.
The premise is this: during a third grade lesson on the Civil Rights movement and Rosa Parks, a Latino boy raises his hand to ask “Where did we sit on the bus?” and his teacher can’t answer the question. Told through rap, hip-hop, spoken word and live looping, the piece examines what it means to be Latino in America.
The show began as a compilation of songs and poems recited at the Nuyorican Poets Café in NYC and has been developed on stages such as Victory Gardens in Chicago and The Millennium Stage at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
Looking for something “out of the box” to wow your next date? This is it.

If you like poetry, hip hop, and just an all-over feel great experience… this is right up your alley.
Enjoy and have a great weekend, little loves! ???? xoxxx Mel
