You're Being Ridiculous is super excited to kick of 2019 with a return to Steppenwolf as part of their LookOut Series -- a performance series that presents the work of artists and companies across genre and form. We're delighted to welcome Lupe Nuñez to YBR to share a story with us ... learn a little about Lupe here and get your tickets!
Lupe is a proud husband and father, first generation Mexican-Chicagoan who makes video games by day and tells stories by night. Born and raised in Chicago, he's spent the last few years bringing his style of storytelling to many shows and venues all across the city and suburbs. Lupe is a lifelong hip hop head, former emcee, and avid record collector which influences and inspires a lot of his writing and storytelling. Lupe is also inspired by his role as a #22q (Google it) and Homeschool Dad. As life's responsibilities and obligations grew over the years, Lupe felt a lot of the creative outlets were slipping away. He's turned to storytelling to fill the void, fell in love w/ making a connection and sharing special moments w/ an audience, and never looked back. He looks forwards to growing and cultivating his storytelling as a craft and taking it to other levels and mediums.
What are your wishes for 2019?
* A healthy, financially improved, loving, happy 2019 for my family and I. We're making some strides in positive directions, I hope we can stay on track and make the most of our goals and plans.
* I wish and hope that real music that takes on the world and society head-on will emerge again. We need it, the kids need it.
* A taco wish: that all of the carne asada is flame-grilled and all of the al pastor is spit-roasted.
