TN-On-Tour @ UCLA!


Join us for Tuesday-Night-On-Tour @ UCLA next Tuesday, May 29 from 6:30 – 8:30 in Sunset Village Plaza!

Tuesday Night Project maintains a passionate, positive space with a focus on new work from Asian American/Pacific Islander communities and from the Greater Los Angeles area. TNP constantly introduces its audiences to new artists and organizations and the amazing work they do all over the city. TN Project’s purpose is to build space for people to connect through the artistic expression of the API and L.A. communities and to provide time for cultural, social, and political awareness with opportunities for involvement, collaboration, real relationship-building and action.

TN-On-Tour brings all of the community, art, and vibes of TNC to college campuses, allowing us to keep building our bridges across generations and spaces.

Next week’s lineup includes:

Cara Van Le

Durwood –
Golda Inquito and Gertie Meza are the singing-songwriting duo Durwood. Durwood blends rich harmonies with bright sounds, unforgettable melodies and impassioned lyrics. Native Los Angelenos, Durwood was born of the diverse influences of their community, the Los Angeles rapid transportation district, the records played on repeat during dinners and weekends by their music enthusiast family members, the inspiring and unassuming heroes of their youth and the sheer desire to get out of their parent’s house.

18 Mighty Mountain Warriors –
Quite possibly the world’s most psychotic Asian American Theatrical Comedy group, the Warriors have been together since 1994 and in that time have created 12 all-new material feature shows, 3 original collaborations with Culture Clash, Campo Santo and Latina Theatre Lab, and performed in New York City, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Chicago, Houston, and Phoenix, among other cities. Inspired by groups such as Monty Python’s Flying Circus, Culture Clash, SNL, and Kids in the Hall, their irreverent style of skit comedy ranges from slapstick to political and takes no prisoners.

Drawing from each of her experiences and environments, she articulates herself through the music she creates, and captivates her audiences with raw honesty and humor. Skim mixes revolutionary visions and fiery rap lyrics with her sultry singing, while strumming a guitar. Her rhythm and percussion flows with the passion of her Corean ancestry. Raised in New York City and presented in Los Angeles, she fuses the consciousness of third world peoples with the urban streets of U.S. cities.

SKIM convinces ears to listen, bodies to dance, and hearts to open.

Andrew Figueroa Chiang and The Blazing Rays Of The Sun –

Andrew Figueroa Chiang is every bit an entertainer. A sweet-voiced, soul-pop songwriter with a genuine love of performing, Andrew has the unique ability to transform any space into a joyful one. His disarming charm, off-the-cuff comedy, and heartfelt delivery make his shows both moving and fun.

This year, Andrew released his first EP!

The self-titled, acoustic record is full of earnest performances, energetic arrangements, and big harmonies. An independent undertaking, the EP was produced by Brendan McCreary and mastered by Carl Saff. Take a listen here!

Andrew is currently playing solo and with his band – the Blazing Rays of the Sun. He thinks it would be very nice to meet you.

New voters can now find help in 7 different languages!

Voting is one of the most important things we do as citizens in a democracy. As California’s chief elections officer, Secretary of State Debra Bowen encourages every eligible citizen to register to vote and participate in elections. To help meet the needs of new citizens and others who prefer to vote in Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Tagalog or Vietnamese, the Secretary has introduced a set of “New Voters” web pages in all these languages, plus English. There, you will find a voter registration form, advice on what to bring with you when you go to vote, instructions on how to vote by mail, and other useful voter information.

To learn more about voting and elections, visit the “New Voters” page at, or call the Secretary of State’s Voter Hotline:

English (800) 345-VOTE (8683)
中文 / Chinese (800) 339-2857
Tagalog / Tagalog (800) 339-2957

APA Legal Center needs Poll Monitor Volunteers needed for June 5 Primary Election

This is a great volunteer opportunity for those interested in civic engagement work within the AANHPI community!
APALC’s Voting Rights team plans to conduct poll monitoring for the June 5 primary. We rely on volunteers for this effort.
The polls open at 7:00am, and we mainly need volunteers to monitor for the first couple of hours so that problems can fixed early on.

Translated election materials must be provided at targeted polls. Oral assistance must also be provided.
The covered Asian languages are Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Tagalog, Vietnamese, Hindi, Khmer, and Thai.
This is the first time LA County will be providing translated materials in the last three languages.
We know the LA County Registrar’s office is trying to get everything in order, but with the new language requirements, there are bound to be slip ups.

If you’re interested or know someone who might be, just shoot an email to our Civic Engagement Coordinator, Rhommel Canare at

Hope to see you there!

Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
A film version of the one woman Stage Play by Kristina Wong

ABOUT: After touring Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest across the country for five years in over 40 live engagements, Wong’s critically acclaimed one woman show is finally captured in her first ever concert film through the dynamic direction of Michael Closson. An unforgettable tour de force performance. Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is Kristina Wong’s raucous and whip-smart take on the high rates of depression and suicide among Asian American women. She sets out to single-handedly save them all by the end of her 80 minute show! She fails fantastically, creating hysterical laughter and a sobering coda. It’s one hell of a roller coaster ride! But don’t worry… it’s all fiction.

WHERE: UCLA CAMPUS, Public Affairs Building 2343
WHEN: Tuesday, May 15 12pm-2pm

* Excerpts from the Film
* Discussion and Q&A with Kristina
* Lunch will be provided!
