I've been schlepping around Los Angeles this past week working on one thing or another and thought I'd drop a line before I head back up to the Bay Area today.
While I've been in town, a friend informed me of the Asian Hip Hop Summit going on this Saturday, October 16th. I'm bummed that I'm not going to be here for it, but if any of you are in the area, I'd say it'd be worth your five bucks to check out the billion performers they have listed. Granted, this is a Hip Hop Summit, so there's going to be rhyming and breaking aplenty. But if, like me, you aren't exactly what people would call a "hip hop head," fear not: one of the three areas of the Los Angeles Leadership Academy (where the Summit's taking place) will be dedicated to rock/pop, where the likes of Ken Oak and Putnam Hall are slated to perform. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Jeet Kune Flow Open Mic for Asians.
So check out the online flier, tell your friends, and haul ass to LA's K-town if you get the chance. As for myself...I must now scoot off to the Bay. Happy Friday!
