SULU Series

Philadelphia, here I come.
DC, here I come.
New York, here I come.
Beam me up, Scottie.

The Sulu Series is named after Sulu of Star Trek, the first Asian American character to venture into the uknown galactic quadrant, and a remote island in the Philiphines.

Sulu DC is an underground, grassroots network for Asian American and/or Pacific Islander American (AAPI) artists, fostering relationships with local and national activist organizations, nurtures the artistic development of emerging AAPI artists and builds inter-generational alliances with cities across North America in preparation for the biennial APIA Spoken Word & Poetry Summit which will be held in the TWIN CITIES, MN this year!!
Once a month, they host a performance showcase of emerging and established AAPI artists in music, spoken word, video, and multidisciplinary performances. There's a three-city East Coast performance circuit that includes: DC, Philadelphia, and NYC.

3rd Fridays in Philadelphia: "Family Style Open Mic" hosted by Yellow Rage
3rd Saturdays in DC: hosted by Regie Cabico, Brian Wang, Simone Jacobson, and Jenny C. Lares
3rd Sundays in NYC: hosted by Taiyo Na and DJ Boo

September marks the 5th year anniversary of Sulu Series, and it also marks the last monthly show NYC will be doing. After this month, they will be closing their doors (for now). September's showcase will be a benefit for the 2011 APIA SPOKEN WORD & POETRY SUMMIT in the Twin Cities.
