It’s never too late to pick up a book! Or to see the last performance of a great local talent that is now leaving us for good. Derrick Brown has been a staple in the Long Beach art & music scene and I remember the first time I heard him speak. It was at Summer And Music 3 years ago right before Delta Spirit was to take the stage as he read from a short poem he had written on the road with the DS guys. Someone from the crowd shouted they didn’t want to hear his bullshit poem and Derrick retorted back with a super fierce diss. That was when I knew this guy was the real deal…

Tonight will be his last Long Beach show before he packs it up for Austin, the city Long Beach should be modeling itself after. You can pick up a copy of his new book “Strange Light” and perhaps if you swear your allegiance to keep writing bloody in the streets of Long Beach he might just sign your copy. This FREE show will feature the music of Long Beach locals Two Guns, ex-members of 60 Watt Kid, new work from Write Bloody authors, and a mini screening of ‘YOU BELONG EVERYWHERE’.
