Students from the University of Brownsville, with CONCA in attendance, engaged in poetic discourse Thursday, May 7, 2015. The location was El Hueso de Fraile, a local coffee house/sandwich shop that transforms into a live music destination where those in attendance are allowed to bring in their own drinks after hours. In their own words stated on their Facebook page:

“El Hueso De Fraile is a family run, culture preservation center, which offers a unique atmosphere in south Texas. A delicious coffee or organic tea, a made from scratch, family recipe sandwich, and some delightful music and art from all cultures create the perfect lunch. Later, at night, the place embodies a candle light, warm, ambiance full of entertainment, and positive energy, where music of all kinds and and people of all ages and life paths coexist.”
More and more our region is being populated with a diverse mix of people with discerning tastes and critical minds who seek to exercise their creative talent on stage. We seek to help spur on this development of the arts along the U.S. – Mexico border and ask that others join us in support of the arts.
