Mark Guerrero with Los Illegals
"Piecemeal Too"
MacArthur Park
Los Angeles, California
March 23, 1986

     "Piecemeal Too" was an avant garde show involving five performance art groups.  It was a multi-cultural mix of groups including African-American, Asian-American, Anglo-American, and Mexican-American (that would be us).  Our piece ran about twenty five minutes and involved music, an Aztec dance, film and photographic projections, spoken word, costumes, a set built on scaffolding, lighting and sound effects, and more.  The Alienz, who consisted of a female dancer, a sax player, and other performance artists, were part of our piece.  "Piecemeal Too" was performed four times.  Thursday, Friday and Saturday night it was performed at City Space, a gigantic downtown Los Angeles warehouse.  On Sunday, it was performed outdoors at MacArthur Park, also in downtown L.A.  The clip below is a ten minute clip of the finale song, "Victory."  The quality of the video is not the greatest (it's somewhat dark) but it captures part of our piece and idea and spirit of what went on that night back in 1985 that would otherwise be lost to the mists of time.  About half way into the song, all the performers from the other groups, along with some random people from the audience, come on stage and dance to the music.

Musicians Mark Guerrero (lead vocal, acoustic guitar), Willie Herrón (lead vocal), Manuel Valdez (lead guitar), Mike Tovar (bass), Bill Reyes (timbales), and Mario Flores (sax).
