Tonight we welcome a new voice to APEX, Sierra Lee who daylights at the Center for Asian American Media.
- Salima Hamarani talks with Hyun Lee with Working Group on Peace and Demilitarization in Asia and the Pacific and Arnie Saiki with the Moana Nui Action Alliance speaking about the potential impact of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense System on US-East Asia relations.
- We talk with artist Sita Kuratomi Bhaumik about her upcoming exhibit Estamos contra el muro: We Are Against the Wall at Southern Exposure where you can pummel a wall of piñatas that represents Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico.
- And we flashback to 2006 when local punk band La Plebe was embarking on its biggest tour yet–to Eastern Europe.
La Plebe’s final shows are this Friday in Watsonville, Saturday at Gilman, October 14 at Bottom of the Hill, and October 15 at El Rio.
On Saturday, at 7 p.m. spend your evening with the indie, action, Filipino vampire film, Vampiriah! It screens at San Francisco Chinatown’s Historic Great Star Theater at 7 p.m.
And next Thursday, don’t miss out! Mass Bass is playing at 12:30 at the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival! You thought they broke up, you thought that frontman Kiwi left the country! Be there on August 8. It may be your last chance to catch this seven-piece radical hip-hop soul collective from Oakland.
Next Thursday after 5 p.m. is “Kristina Night” at the Asian Art Museum! Comedian Kristina Wong joins filmmaker Jeff Adachi, performer Khmera Rouge, and other local artists and museum docents to reinterpret famous pieces of performance art from Yoko Ono, Shia Lebeouf and more. You won’t want to miss this hilarious, one-night only takeover.
