Hapa Happy

Friday, December 18, 2009

A quick post on a cool event that's happening tonight - and if you're in the Philadelphia area (and you happened to beat down some Asian kids and were thinking maybe that wasn't such a good idea and want to do something for the community) - you may just want to go.

"Family Style," the Asian Arts Initiative's monthly open-mike night, 7:30 tonight at 1219 Vine St. This month's theme is "Hapa Happy: Celebrating All That Is Mixed and Multi." Anyone who wants to perform can e-mail michelle@yellowrage.com or sign up 30 minutes before showtime. The show also will feature slam poet Thaddeus Rutkowski and a showing of Anomaly, a film by Jessica Chen Drammeh. Admission: $5 to $10. Information: 215- 557-0455, http://asianartsinitiative.org
