We’re celebrating 17 years of A Mic and Dimlights with a takeover by Bess Kepp, the host & JB, the DJ! A Mic & Dimlights is the longest running event in Downtown Pomona celebrating free speech with an open mic every Thursday. AMDL is now a monthly and the two Nor-Cal boys, turned IE OGs are mentoring the next gen to keep this community outlet moving forward. JB plays the mids and Bess Kepp takes us out with the infamous Dim Lights (outro).
AMDL Alumni Leeclaybang reunites with the fam. Formerly known as Brother Dvooa, the poet-emcee, dancer, now a producer gone dj, yes he’s covering all elements. He opens the show with a dj set, the crew talks about memories at Dim Lights, the early days, its many venues and what’s to come. Gabe Real, also having worked within the community over the same timespan contributes to the conversation and delivers a closing mix.
