'And We Will Sing In The Tall Grass Again' / Sidro Saturdays
Visual Art, Music, Food

If you haven't checked out the ambitious group show on view at The Front gallery in San Ysidro, now's your chance during the new, monthly Sidro Saturdays festival taking place this Saturday.

"And We Will Sing Again in the Tall Grass: Postcolonial Futurities at the End of Gender" opened at the beginning of July. The works — by thirteen Southern California and border artists — include film, painting, photography and video works, even seeds planted in a profound dirt graveyard.

I spoke to the curators last month, and it's a really thoughtful and off-the-beaten path option during Pride weekend.

There's also plenty more to hit up while in San Ysidro: music, more art and food.

Details: Sidro Saturdays runs July 17 from 5-10 p.m.; The Front is open from 5-8 p.m. 147 W. San Ysidro Blvd., San Ysidro. Free.

At The Front, we will be featuring a variety of art vendors, vintage curations, vinyl collectors, poetry readings & more.

Then, a few steps away, we welcome you to our all new Living Rooms At The Border, a new performing arts center where you’ll meet with organic harvests, plant vendors, and ceramic works.

In partnership with The FRONT Art Gallery, Living Rooms at The Border, BLK Box Gallery [@blkboxgallery], El Rincon Restaurant [@elrincon.sanysidro], San Ysidro Music School, San Ysidro’s own tap houses, Hoppy Daze [@hoppydazesd] & South Bay Tap House [@southbaytaphouse].
