Rhythm and Autism Preview at La Strada Chalk Art Festival Side Street!
The La Strada dei Pastelli Chalk Art Festival is a huge event in which East Main Street in downtown Hillsboro is closed off for 4 blocks so that brilliant chalk artists can create gorgeous art right there on the spot, before your very eyes! There will be also crafts and live performances at the Plaza and also on the side streets, and the latter is where I will be, in front of Puppernickel Bakery. I will be preceded there by Henry Kaiser and his 12-string beast (from 12-2 PM), Rob Cork and his fantastic tie-dyed cinematic tuneage (from 2-4 PM), and then me. No props or scenery or AV stuff here, just me with my backing tracks, guitar, and live percussion loops, mixing spoken word/comedy and singing my piece about growing up autistic amid the pop culture cheese of the 1960s and 1970s and how it made me who I am today. Eeeeeee!
