Benefit concert at Gallery Nucleus to celebrate Asian-Pacific Heritage Month

Location

Gallery Nucleus

210 East Main Street
Alhambra , CA 91801 United States

As May winds down, so does Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month, but it's not leaving without a sendoff.Streetwear company Akufuncture will be at Gallery Nucleus this Saturday to present Osmosis, a benefit concert showcasing musical acts of Asian and Pacific Islander decent. According to organizer Samuel Wang, co-founder of Akufuncture, it's not just a evening of live music, but also a celebration of Asian-American culture in the 21st century."With Osmosis, we're trying to convey the idea of preserving your own culture while living in the American society," Wang said. "We're telling people that the term 'Asian-American' is two words, but you don't have to pick one. You don't have to reject one or the other — you can be both."The night's lineup includes beat-boxer Vincent Bantasan, rap-rockers afterschoolspecial, and acoustic-pop crooners Dawen and Kevin Lien. Brothers Andrew and David Fung, billed as rap acts, will serve as a pair of comic MCs as well.

Wang expects to develop Osmosis into an ongoing series of concerts. Each concert will be directed as a service to the community — proceeds from Saturday's event will go to the educational fund at the Chinese American Museum. The events also set the stage for budding Asian-American artists to build an audience, Wang said. Plans for "Osmosis 2," which Wang says will be grander in scale, are already taking shape for December.Osmosis will run from 7:30pm to 10:00pm at Gallery Nucleus on 210 East Main Street. Pre-sale tickets are $7 at the Akufuncture website. Day-of tickets will be $10 at the door.
