Yo NYers! Come check out this very special edition of Sulu Series – curated by yours truly. Sulu is a monthly showcase of established and up-and-coming APA artists – and this installment will also be a fundraiser the incredible pan-Asian children’s advocacy organization the Coalition for Asian American Children and Families (CACF).
At the risk of sounding immodest, the event will feature a blow-your-bowels lineup — with spoken word queen Kelly Tsai, rapper Koba, singer-songwriter/emcee Taiyo Na, comedian Ali Wong, and many more amazing talents — peep the flyer above. Jams spun by the one-and-only DJ Boo (dance party afterwards if you bum rush the floor!)
While I’m leaving the mc’ing in the capable hands of Taiyo so I don’t utterly destroy the evening, I will need to hop up briefly for an announcement about CACF – meaning you’ll still have a chance to see me blank out, mumble incoherently, offend the audience, and/or trip and fall off the stage. That alone is worth your $8! And the chances of making an ass of myself are in direct and positive correlation with the number of drinks you buy me. Just a heads up.
And yes, I know it’s a Sunday night, but think of the children! If you don’t come, consider yourself personally responsible for their squalor and deprivation. RUDE! Avoid the guilt and shame and get that juicy booty to Sulu.
