There are a couple annual music events with an Asian focus but it’s always good to see more, especially ones that target a different angle. The Asian Music Festival is bringing some of the illest acts from out of Korea including Verbal Jint, an OG in the game who’s been killin it the past few years, and Beenzino, who’s been shaking up the game since he popped up (only in LA). If you don’t understand Korean, please believe they got local Asian American heroes like Philly’s Danny Chung aka Decipher who always tear it down. It goes down starting this Thursday and continues on through the weekend.
New York – Thursday, May 22 at the B.B. King Blues Club
Seattle – Friday, May 23 at The Showbox
Los Angeles – May 25 at the Belasco Theater
