The event that you've all been waiting for is finally here! cultureSHOCK is AAA's annual charity performance showcase and fashion show that highlights Asian American talent and art through music, spoken word, dance, and fashion. The theme of this year's show is "evolution," signifying the continuously developing Asian American identity and experience.
If you don't recognize many of the names in our lineup this year, don't worry. The aim of cultureSHOCK is to showcase the talents of up-and-coming Asian American performers and fashion designers, who may not get enough attention in mainstream American media. In addition to student performances by J-Tang & W.I.L.F., Onyx, Melaku, Lambda Phi Epsilon, and CU Generation, our headliners this year are Mitchell Grey, Brownstar Revolution, Aesthetics Crew, Hari Kondabolu, and Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai.
We invite you to join us for an unforgettable night of dinner, performances, and fashion on Saturday, February 4th, from 7 - 10 PM in Roone Arledge Auditorium in Lerner Hall (doors open at 6:45 PM, show starts at 7:30 PM). Tickets are $10 each and can be bought from the AAA table on the Lerner ramps from 12 PM - 5 PM on January 23rd to February 4th or online at this link: https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pe/9591145
The first 100 guests to arrive will receive $5 McDonald's gift cards, so get here early! All guests will be treated to a buffet-style dinner in addition to drinks and snacks provided by PopChips, New Leaf, and DreamWater. We will also have some surprise giveaways from our corporate sponsors that you don't want to miss out on!
All the proceeds from cultureSHOCK will be donated to the Committee Against Anti-Asian Violence (CAAAV), which is a community-based grassroots organization that organizes initiatives for justice for Asian Americans in New York City, specifically those from immigrant, working-class, or refugee backgrounds. By attending cultureSHOCK, you are also supporting CAAAV’s initiatives and thus giving back to the Asian American community.
But wait, cultureSHOCK is only the beginning! We invite you to join us for afterSHOCK, the official cultureSHOCK after-party, at M Lounge in Tribeca. Bring your cultureSHOCK ticket stub for discounted pricing, and be prepared for a special night with the members of AAA that worked relentlessly on all the details of the show.
