open mic night @ milagros

this week is hunger education week here at la puente and we've been super busy with activities and events to raise awareness about the issues of hunger and malnutrition. the culmination of the week will be the crop walk at cole park to raise money for the food bank network of the san luis valley.
last night was open mic night at milagros coffeehouse. it was pretty much one of the best nights ever. we had an awesome turn out and some really great performances. who knew there was so much talent right here in the SLV?

some photo documentation:

donovan and his band, the popcorn trees, played a number of sweet of jams. milagros has never been so rockin.

the ever so talented eric shiveley was generous enough to provide sound equipment and manage all the sound needs for the event. after some cajoling we were able to get him up on stage. his sweet, smooth voice delivered the classic patsy cline 'crazy'. eric's documentary everyone but you just premiered at the oxford film festival in ohio and will be at the colorado springs indie spirit festival tonight.

more open mic night photos to come . . .
