Beats, Rhymes, and Life-THIS Thursday night in Houston

Just a gentle reminder that it’s still on like Donkey Kong:

Houston has many South Asian artists, musicians, and other creative individuals who never seem to get the type of attention that their counterparts in New York, L.A., and D.C. receive. This summer it’s time to change all that. Join us on Thursday, July 19th from 8:30-11:00 p.m. at the new downtown venue “Bar Bollywood” (basement of the Butterfly High Lounge) for a FREE night of Spoken Word, Live Music, and Visual Arts. DJ Raj Swift will also be on hand to lay down the backbeat.

If you are an artist of any kind and want to perform (especially a spoken word, literary, or dance piece) or just want more information, then email abhi [at] ASAP.

Although this event is meant to spotlight South Asian artists, ALL are welcome and encouraged to attend. Spread the word.

Finally, Roopa Vasan will be on hand to cheek swab people for the South Asian Bone Marrow Registry in hopes of finding a match to save her cousin Vinay’s life.

We’ve also added a stand-up comic to the line-up. If you are still interested in performing please email me (and keep spreading the word)!

  1. Hey Abhi… This night sounds like a lot of fun and I really wish I could make it… but my first visit to Houston is starting the next day on Friday. I’m in College Station for the summer and I’m meeting up with my crazy uncle from Manhattan for two nights. How are Fridays/Saturday nights at Bar Bollywood? Would it be possible for Roopa to be there on any of the other two nights, so we can get swabbed? Best of luck on Thursday… I’m sure it will be a rousing success!

  2. I am so looking fwd to a nice chillout evening :) Kudos to Abhi and everyone else involved for putting this effort together. Thanks to one of the earlier marrow donor requests on SM, I did get myself on the donor registry a few months ago. Keep the good work going, folks.

  3. last night was off the hook….the bar has been raised. mad love to Abhi, and his group of friends for putting together a PHENOMENAL night. mad love.

  4. Anything special coming up this weekend at Bar Bollywood? Its funny I work right next block from Bar Bollywood, but saw it yesterday during lunch at Yatra…. Anything for tomorrow or this weekend?
