One of the nice things about LA is that, as one of the largest cities in the US, we’re often able to get in on the ground floor of various types of cultural happenings. One example of that is the series of concerts put together in recent years by International Secret Agents, who describe themselves as “a concert events company which aims to showcase the brightest and most talented rising artists of this Internet Generation to a diverse, international audience.” Their LA festival this year is taking place in Long Beach, and here’s some of the information from the press release:
YouTube sensations Ryan Higa (aka NigaHiga), behind the 2nd most subscribed YouTube channel of all time, along with the 9th most subscribed YouTube comedian Kevin Wu (aka Kev Jumba) and singer Cathy Nguyen will host the event that aims to inspire and empower both performers and spectators.
The show will include performances from America’s Best Dance Crew 2011 champions I.aM.mE, Sundance and Cannes filmmakers Wong Fu Productions, 7th most subscribed musician on YouTube, David Choi, and rising musical stars Kina Grannis and New Heights.
Far East Movement and Wong Fu Productions set out to make this grassroots movement not only an active participant in the international entertainment landscape, but also a helping hand for non-profits and community-based organizations. 4C the Power is one of those organizations, providing professional training to youth in the arts to increase academic engagement and high school graduation rates. ISA gives spectators a chance to engage with the arts and their community.
So there you have it: an exciting lineup of creative youth coming together to share in the arts and give back to the community. Who wouldn’t want to support that? Now’s your chance: there are still some tickets available for purchase through the ISA website. VIP tickets and backstage passes are already sold out, so don’t delay.
We here at Blogging.LA have one pair of tickets to give away to a lucky commenter. Simply chime in below by 11:59pm on Thursday the 29th and the winner will be chosen at random. Good luck!
