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 – durwoodmusic.net
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 – www.18mmw.com
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.
SKIM – skimvillage.wordpress.com
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 – andrewandthebrots.com
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.
