LA Chinatown parties never seem to fail. Out of all the summer events and pool parties, KCRW presents Summer Nights has been my favorite Chinatown event all year. There’s something about the lights and smells of that small Chinatown square that make me feel like I’m on vacation somewhere farther away. KCRW Summer Nights features live cooking demonstrations, hands-on Chinese cultural activities, food trucks, authentic Chinese restaurants, and KCRW DJs rockin’ the dance floor. Video projections of vintage chinese movies covered the large backside of a building directly across from the Grand Star Jazz Club, creating the perfect setting for any dance party. You know when you party in Chinatown, there are going to be some sick dancers. At the last event there was some amazing voguing going on and definitely some house cats up in the place.
This Saturday September 10th will be the last of the two KCRW Summer Nights events so if you didn’t catch it last week, you can’t miss this one. KCRW DJs Anthony Valadez and Aaron Byrd will be spinning in Central Plaza from 9p-12a. This free event officially starts at 5pm with art shows, vendors and food demonstrations.
