Had a terrific time at…

Had a terrific time at Subcontinental Drift tonight, even though I was SO exhausted (so buzzed about the book pre-orders going out yesterday that I had trouble sleeping!). It seems to have evolved more towards music and comedy and less spoken word than the last time I attended -- it's also gotten better.

Exciting to see so much desi arts talent in the city, especially since it's an entirely different set of people than my old crowd. Chicago is big -- it should be big enough to support a ton of different arts groups. But I hope we can cross-pollinate and support each other too. Thanks especially to Bidisha for having me out! She has an amazing voice. Gosh, I wish I could sing.

  1. Hi,

    It was nice to have a different art form tonight – it’s inspiring coming from the desi community. My friend Grish and I are planning to attend the reading next month!

  2. Hi, Lesley! It’s so nice of you to stop by here, and yes, I hope you can make the reading. I’m sorry — there were so many new people last night I didn’t know; were you one of the performers? A ton of terrific musical / comedic talent last night!
