In its third phase, moonroom continues to lead the way in celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. #APAHM PHASE, an #AAPI alternative arts series, moves forward with its third season of showcases highlighting AAPI artists and AAPI-fronted bands across Southern California in celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
This year’s theme is Confluence as we look to continue improving and reconstructing representation of Asian Americans in Western culture. Over the last 2 years, PHASE has quickly become a singular force for the AAPI community showcasing more than 80 AAPI artists across more than 20 music and performance arts showcases from Los Angeles to San Diego. 2019 expands with an even more diverse slate of programmers, events, and participating artists.
GUM is lucky to once again join the not-for-profit community organization, moonroom, in association with Jellyhead Collective to bring APAHM to Pomona, Thursday May 23rd at 8 p.m. at DBA Bar & Gallery. The night is set to be a dreamy, indie-pop slew with art and visuals to celebrate the occasion.
Featuring Orange County lo-fi loop local, krost, SGV hometown funk-gaze heroes, Moon Ensemble, LA’s MOMS and the ever rising dream-pop collective, Talk Time, Pomona is proud to host the talented acts. The event is open to the public, ages 21+ and over, and will feature a slew of surprises.
