Subject: Subversity interviews organizers of Rock-A-Mole Live and unity rally

Irvine -- KUCI's public affairs interview program, Subversity, focuses on 
street art, music, and "gang" youth unity as the show presents a live 
interview with Lee Ballinger and Dewayne Holmes, who are organizing two 
in S. California to bring together street and "gang" youth.  The show 
airs Tuesday, March 19, from 5-6 p.m. on KUCI, 88.9 FM in Orange County.

Ballinger, an associate editor of "Rock and Rap Confidential", is 
one of the organizers of "Rock-A-Mole Live! #2," an April 12 festival in 
Los Angeles (at 7 p.m.) that will present live music (Ozomatli plus D.O.P.E. 
Mob/Strokely/Ernie Perez), a street art show (art by homeless, inmates and 
at-risk youth), and dynamic poetry from diverse voices from the streets.  

Holmes, who organized the gang truce in Watts, is arranging an April 27 
"unity rally" in at Will Rogers Park in Watts to bring together "gang" 
youth in a demonstration of unity among youth of color.  Both Ballinger 
and Holmes hope to penetrate the Orange Curtain that separates people 
here from our neighbors in Los Angeles.

Listeners can call the show at (714) 824-KUCI to chat with the guests.
