There's a lot more uphill walking than I'd remembered at the Ford - but not as much as at the Bowl!

Based on the old Mexican variedades (variety show) format, the show evokes the “progressive” era of early 20th century Los Angeles, where activists gathered at the Old Plaza in Downtown and faced off with their political nemeses: the Los Angeles Times and the LAPD. Slated to perform is Rubén Martínez, Raquel Gutiérrez, Quetzal, Ceci Bastida, Josh Kun, Marisoul Hernandez, Chicano Son, The Martínez Del Río Band, Yuri Batres-Estévez and Joe Grimm. The performance will be taped for broadcast on KCET as part of its “Live @ the Ford” series.
