This past Monday was a night to remember at SOB's in NYC and here's what went down.
The FRESH, BOLD and SO DEF showcase was brought together by Martha Diaz,AF3IRM, FusicologyandNati Linares. Circa '95 attended the event to show support to all the artists doing amazing work! To our suprise Patty Dukes ended up being asked to sit on the Panel, host the show and perform!

The evening went on as scheduled and the concert began. The night was a celebration and the guest of honor was our friend ANA TIJOUX from Chile. She brought her entire band with her. Their first time in North America and let me tell you they were amazing! Guess what, with only $400 Ana recorded her album in Chile and ended up being nominated for aGRAMMY! So don't give up - anything is possible if you believe!
Shout Outs go to @SupaEngineer for holding down the sound at SOB's. Vee Bravo and Yvette for coming thru.
