MICHAEL FRANTI AND SPEARHEAD

Past Event

Michael Franti & Spearhead

At some point, lyrics can become poetry, and that’s a goal that Michael Franti has achieved, writing songs with numerous ensembles, the most successful being his group Spearhead. He first earned notice in the early ‘90s with Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy, whose tours opening for rock bands introduced teens to hip-hop grooves unimagined beyond Blondie’s “Rapture” and Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way” mashup with Run DMC. He formed Spearhead in 1994, moving away from political songs in favor of funk, island, and jazz accents.

THE ORIGINAL SIAMESE TWINS

Past Event

Inseparable: The Original Siamese Twins

  • Sunday, June 10, 2018, 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
  • D.G. Wills Books, 7461 Girard Avenue, San Diego
  • Free

Yunte Huang will read from and discuss his new book Inseparable: The Original Siamese Twins and Their Rendezvous with American History. Chang and Eng Bunker (1811–1874), twins conjoined at the sternum by a band of cartilage and a fused liver, were “discovered” in Siam by a British merchant in 1824. Huang depicts the twins, arriving in Boston in 1829, first as museum exhibits but later as savvy showmen who gained their freedom and traveled rural America to bring “entertainment” to the Jacksonian mobs. They owned slaves and married two white sisters, resulting in twenty-one children.
