I’ve been out of town for the part two weeks seeing family and exploring the South. Saturday’s Montavilla town hall on homelessness has been postponed.

The African American Alliance for Homeownership presents “A Taste of Lents”.

Including vendors, local resources and homeownership opportunities, and youth activities include blow up basketball, water slide arts and crafts. Free and open to the public.

Live music from: Erotic City Prince Tribute Band, Fito Roberts featuring Canacul, 2 for 30, and Ice Cold Blue. I couldn’t find anything about the other bands, but Erotic City is amazing. The lead singer used to have a vintage shop up on Alberta Street full of velvety, fuzzy, and of course purple, Prince-like clothes.

Lents Park 92nd & SE Holgate * noon – 6 pm
