Legions of Boom: Panel & Party

Legions of Boom: Panel & Party
Celebrating the Fil-Am mobile DJ crews of the Bay Area!

Presented by Bindlestiff and API Cultural Center as part of its 19th annual United States of Asian America Festival 2016.

When: May 13 - 14; 8p
Location: 185 6th St. San Francisco, CA

Buy tickets: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2520158

The panel discussion on May 13th, moderated by Oliver Wang, will highlight aspects of his book with special attention given to USAAF's theme of Civil Dis(place)ment. Live DJ demonstrations from artists mentioned in the book, like Gary Millare aka DJ Genie G, formerly of Ultimate Creations.

The Party on May 14th will re-create the kind of event that mobile DJ crews would rock. The Bindlestiff Players will perform an interactive play revolving around a family party that a rival DJ
crew crashes in order to settle a score. Audiences members are encouraged to dress in late 80s fashion as they fill their roles as the play's party-goers. Think big hair, pegged pants, and pagers.

Food and drink included with admission.
