Saturday Night at the MOCA with Beau Sia
My first time seeing one of Beau's performance was at the Def Poetry Jam's performance on Broadway. He is well known for being a spoken word artist.
Although the venue at the MOCA was definitely smaller than the Broadway stage, it gave way to a much more intimate and spontaneous performance.
Beau's performances mostly have to do with issues of race and cultural identity within America. His words are very moving and thought provoking.
A friend and myself were able to enjoy Beau's show for $5 a piece. It would've been even cheaper if we were MOCA members, which we have and are planning on becoming.

Note: I would not recommend this performance for young children because of adult language.
