Last week, I had the opportunity to show my support of ethnic print media by attending KoreAm Journal’s Benefit Show at the Laugh Factory in Long Beach, Calif. The benefit was coordinated as an SOS effort to keep KoreAm afloat amidst the harsh economic times. Despite the short amount of planning time, the event managed top garner an impressive turnout.
The event’s performers included headlining comedians Kevin Shea, Eliot Chang, Randall Park, Walter Hong, Andy Hur and PK, the event coordinator and Kollaboration executive director. Note to self: bring an extra pair of pants in the future to avoid pissing yourself again. That’s how funny they all were. Just kidding, I didn’t really pee in my pants. Don’t want to relive any traumatic childhood memories, now.
Event headliner rapper Dumbfoundead wowed us with his performance of “She Don’t Care” (a song about ‘brokediggers,’ not golddiggers) and witty spoken word piece, “Internet Pimp.” He’s informed us of a huge AA battle taking place soon. Singer/songwriter Sam Kang performed a heart-wrenching “So Beautiful” song at the event. It was as you guessed it — so beautiful. Kang has a CD release party coming up Friday, Dec. 19 at the Vision Art Hall in Los Angeles. Check his official site for details.
We chatted up Far*East Movement’s KevNish and Prohgress after the show. The guys of Far*East Movement are gearing up to unleash their new album entitled, “Animal” this week with a radio tour. In Southern California? Request Far*East Movement at Power 106! Not in California? Request them anyway!
Overall, I had a stellar time at this event. I urge you all to flock to KoreAm Journal and show your support.
