The CALA Alliance will be hosting the fifth edition of Crossfade Lab on Friday, October 27 from 7pm to 9pm. The event will take place at the Crescent Ballroom (308 N 2nd Ave, Phoenix, Arizona 85003), and doors will open at 6:30pm.
This edition of Crossfade Lab features a conversation between acclaimed Arizona Mojave poet Natalie Diaz and two time Latin Grammy award-winning Mexican songwriter and musician (and former Phoenix local) Carla Morrison. Josh Kun, the CALA Crossfade Lab co-curator and 2016 MacArthur Fellow, will moderate the evening’s discussion. The CALA Alliance teases that the night will involve “an experimental mix of words and music, exploring the connections between themes central to both Diaz and Morrison: desire and love, land and family, and traditions that bend, bear witness, and sometimes break.”
