Popwagon Production Meeting

Last Sunday, a group of us met at the Popwagon to go over the details for our big grand opening. In honor of  CicLAvia, (which was on the same day) curator Paloma Parfrey, musician Oscar Mantos and performance artist  Lila de Magalhaes rode their bikes from Silverlake and covered the entirety of the Expo line.

The grand opening will take place on April 28,2012 as part of the inaugural celebration for the Metro Expo line. More details to come.
