Tonight at the Laboratory of Art and Ideas, 404 South Upham Street in Lakewood's Belmar, The Rantings of a MAMA (Middle Aged Mexican-American) is a mixed-bag peek into Garcias world. The show, which begins at 6 p.m., includes everything from skits to "acoustic commentaries" to stories. "We're just going up there to play for a while," says Garcia. "For example, one skit is called 'I Think I'm Turning Mexican,' and it's about a black guy who starts speaking Spanish and watching soccer. The idea is, his neighborhood is changing, and he's changing along with it."
Tickets are $5 for members, $10 for non-members. For information, call 303-934-1777 or go to www.belmarlab.org.
