In their latest piece for LA Weekly, music editor Brett Callwood reports on an upcoming event on Thursday, Nov. 2, at the Intercrew restaurant in Los Angeles in conjunction with the Pacific Bridge Arts Foundation. Called “A Night to Remember: A Celebration of Asian Americans in Music,” this private event will honor students set to receive the night’s scholarships, as well as Asian American artists on the whole.
“Kevin Nishimura is a cofounder of the Pacific Bridge Arts Foundation, which provides ‘a platform to support and celebrate Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders in arts and culture’ (according to their website). He’s also a member of the pioneering electronic/hip-hop outfit, the Far East Movement,” explains Callwood. “That group no longer performs, having switched to the business side of the industry, but they’ll be hosting this event.”
