Re CAP: BONDFIRE Concert Series art work created with Andre T. which was sold.. was cool

What a night! Every BONDFIRE Concert series has been getting better and more live as I participate at their monthly shows, at the Bowery Poetry Club in Manhattan. The open mic has many audience on their edge of their seats, as also Tasty Keish and Bronx Uber Villain introduces the many amazing talents on stage... Breath taken. This particular night was one of the best, and special to me, I don't know how to even word it, but it was beyond gratification, the tremendous and overwhelming feeling I had at midpoint at this show. The lights went low, as when Conscious also know as Bronx Uber Villain, talks to the audience and points to the slow lowering of the projector screen. As it was set, a footage and words that said the following: "The Artist Process"

Stunned and frozen, as I stood there, and also I was a bit confused, " The artist process hasn't been edited yet, how in the world they got this running? " The audience viewed the short filmed in complete silence, and I was nervous seeing how I was talking in this film, cuz I am not as good in the speech department, (but am training on it). The film comes to a close, and I was speechless, teary eyed and in complete surprise. The BONDFIRE Concert series family/team did a tremendous great job in the way the film was edited! So professional so well thought of, so appreciated, by me... The audience cheered and clapped, as I stood there all geedy...

What top the night away was that my friend Andre T, (an Art Battles regular), and I did a collaborative piece at the event, and an awesome guy was motivated in buying he told us that he will leave shortly and return to purchase our art work, how cool is that! Then the night was getting better and the concert was going under way with some cool chica on stage with a violin.... Hip Hop meets classical ... still in awe by the whole night...

Meet some new friends and reunite with some of my folks, what a great night! and thank you BONDFIRE family!
