Appease the ancestors

The 10 bucks to get in to this event should be more than worth it to experience this ambitious marriage of performance and the paranormal. Día de los Muertos at the KiMo Theatre promises to provide auspicious offerings to the ancestors through myriad forms of self-expression. Once you walk in the doors, poet Jimmy Santiago Baca, hip-hop artist Myrlin Hepworth, artist Eric Christo Martinez and accordionist Kiko Glenn, among many others, will all be onhand to channel your senses toward those who have passed. An official after-party at ArtBar (119 Gold SW) will keep the spirits flowing.
