The Open Stage: October 5, 2012
Everett presents The Open Stage, a monthly event for young performers featuring house dance troupe Case Closed! and hosted by Everett’s Sokeo Ros & Bianca Morris. The Open Stage happens on the first Friday of each month from 8 to 9:30 p.m., immediately following the Friday Night Live comedy show at 7 p.m.
The aim is to give local youth performers a forum to show their talents in front of a live audience. Each show will feature a different headliner and local hip hop theater troupe Case Closed! Audience members will have the opportunity to sign up for a 5-minute performance slot before each show.
This month our headliner is Erik Andrade, a spoken word artist and community activist from Providence Rhode Island living in New Bedford, MA. He has opened up for major recording artists such as Mos Def, Dead Prez, Wise Intelligent, Masta Ace, Jean Grae, ED OG, Killah Priest and 9th Prince of Wu-Tang. Erik currently works with New Bedford youth through People Acting in Community Endeavor (PACE), YouthBuild New Bedford, as the AmeriCorps Program Coordinator and co-facilitator of the Sustainability, Leadership Development and Social Justice Workshops. Erik is also the founding member of La Soul Renaissance and the Overflowing Cup Project. La Soul Renaissance is a local spoken word and hip hop venue which focuses on social justice issues and spirituality. The Overflowing Cup Project is an artist circle that works to encourage, recover and inspire creativity through a collective process. Erik is also a radio personality on www.musicfeen.com on 3rd Society Radio from 8pm-10pm.
