Back in July I traveled to Oaxaca Mexico with The Date Famers to help setup the Hecho en Oaxaca Group Art Exhibition at MACO – Museum of Contemporary Art of Oaxaca.  The exhibition featured art by Dr. Lakra, Date Farmers, How & Nosm, Retna, Saner, Swoon, Yeska, Vhils, MOMO, Nunca,  and StenLex.

My week in Oaxaca included drinking Mezcal, searching for rare cumbia records, eating Tlayudas at 4am, and staying at a haunted hotel. It was an awesome trip. Looking forward to heading back to Oaxaca. Shout out to all the artist that helped make the Hecho en Oaxaca show a success.
