DJ PHATRICK & NOEL LOPEZ BIRTHDAY PARTY
+ SESSIONS LA FUNDRAISER!
I don’t usually publicly celebrate my birthday, but I figure this’ll be a good way to get the homies together, listen to some of my favorite DJs, and raise some much needed funds for our youth program, SESSIONS LA. The party starts at 9pm BUT, if you come to The Blu Monkey a little earlier, we’ll be showing a certain sporting “main event” [wink, wink]!
$5-$20 Suggested Donation
(No one will be turned away for lack of funds.)
ALL PROCEEDS BENEFIT SESSIONS LA!
9pm-2am (Bar Open At 6pm For “Main Event”)
THE BLU MONKEY BAR & LOUNGE
5521 Hollywood Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90028

On the eve of the 20th anniversary of the LA Rebellion, my youth program, SESSIONS LA is releasing the MY LA theme song. MY LA is the multi-media theatre production by the Heart & Soul Arts Collective at Inner-City Arts which portrays a vignette of LA from the perspective of its diverse youth residents. Sessions LA provided several music pieces for the show including this theme song, which closes out the show in a grand finale.
MY LA is features Sessions LA emcees Tripz, Samuel Hernandez, & RemGee. The music was produced by RemGee.
Please help support keeping music and art alive for our youth: donate what you can to download the track. If you don’t have any spare funds, you can download it for free by naming the price of “$0”.

Sometime late in June of 2011, I received an email from a USC film student named Faroukh Virani. He was a part special course called the Global Exchange Workshop where 7 USC film students were paired with 7 students the Communications University of China in Beijing. Him and his partner, Bobbi Dai, were interested in making a short documentary addressing issues of race and identity in Asian American Hip Hop. Their plan was to interview as many Asian Americans involved with Hip Hop as possible. Long story short, they ended up focusing the documentary on me and my passions as a DJ & educator. I am really happy with the outcome as it gives me a chance to rave about being Chinese American, about being a Chinese American DJ, & about why I’ve chosen education as my main priority in life.
Our youth program, SESSIONS LA, is featured in this video alot…we are trying to save it right now. If you like what I do with the youth, please please please donate to our SAVE SESSIONS IndieGoGo campaign:

As of October 1st 2011, Sessions LA has no more funding. Sessions LA is the youth music program that I help coordinate & instruct.
Due to the recession and acts of nature beyond our control, we have not yet been able to receive any new grants from public or private funders to continue the amazing work that we offer to the Los Angeles youth. Therefore we need YOU, the community, to help us survive through this drought while we continue to search for philanthropic support.
Please donate to our SAVE SESSIONS IndieGoGo Campaign. Any amount helps! There are many levels of sponsorship, which come with, what we hope are, worthwhile incentives.
