My journey to Granada Hills was rewarding, not only did I have the opportunity meet a plethora of local residents but I also had the pleasure of reacquainting myself with the various owners of the food trucks that were present– I had met several vendors at the San Fernando Food Truck night. In any case I enjoyed the evening, lots of people, photos, a full set was played, and of course Deicy and Frank, of Graffiteria LA, showed their support for the Artcard project, hosted by LA-Artist.
SAVE THE DATES!!!
LA-Artist & Michael Ray De Los Angeles will be at the 5th annual Anarchist Book Fair on December 7th.
Graffiteria LA will be at the Wild Bunch Car Club Van Nuys 5th Annual Toy Drive & Cruise In on December 8th .
As an musician, I still feel that I am still working on my song transitions, and stage performance–even after all these years together, me and my Yamaha (featured above) are still finding ways to get closer to one another.

This is a bit of a side note, but I really want to include it:
I want to take a moment to acknowledge that yesterday was Black Friday. The post turkey day festivity often includes large scale consumerism. Here in the valley, the celebration of consumerism could be found at places like the Walmart in Panorama City. So what did it look like??? See for yourself: The line starts here.
Happy Saturday one and all.
