Signmark @ RIT /Gally weekend Brickfest

heye all –

me pumped!  why?  Signmark (finish Deaf rap artist) will be in ROCKchester  for the RIT /Gally Brickfest!!!!!

(more info on RIT/Gally weekend here)

lecture on Sat 1 pm in CSD Student Development Center 1300/1310 (see cool SignmarkFlyer)

performance Sat 10 pm – 3 am in the Field House

tickets are $5 online or $10 at the door – $$ goes to Deaf Japanese victims of the earth quake and tsunami

YEP – Deaf artists ROCK.  i have not met a more generous groups of souls in me life.  they think of their people all over the globe and they share and love etc (yes of course there are a few selfish ones in the lot but those r usually the ones whose artistry is kinda lame and they are overcompensating so just walk on by me think.  By and large – Deaf natural signed language poets, storytellers, actors, writers, visual artists, filmmakers, rappers, etc r GOOD SOULS – “doing it for our people” big time)

don’t know who Signmark is – shame on u!!!!

see their official site for more info: http://www.signmark.biz/site/en/home

don’t like anything that has to do with sound or music – no problem.  that is ur right.  we just be grooving over here – u can stay over there.

open to see seeing what works for all of us and what don’t – as bob baker would say, “come on down”

the thing i love the most about  Signmark is that the lyrics r VERY Deaf centered – very
