TEASER PARTY: Hyphen Magazine // May 7 @ 9:30 p.m.

For the first time since Hyphen was founded, we’re going to be hosting our very
first LA issue teaser party for our upcoming Bittersweet issue on Saturday, May
7th from 9:30 pm – 2 am at Chop Suey in Little Tokyo. This is extremely exciting
for us, as we’ve been wanting to connect with our LA readership in person for a

Dawen, Jane Lui, Sam Kang + Band, and SKIM are all slated to perform that night.
We will have live beats all night, together with live art and great giveaways.

Founded in 2003, Hyphen is a nonprofit news and culture magazine and blog that
illuminates Asian America through hard-hitting investigative features on the
cultural and political trends shaping the fastest-growing ethnic population in
the country. We offer in-depth profiles of change-makers in our community and a
window into the world of artists and writers who are re-envisioning and
rewriting what it means to be Asian American. Through balanced and incisive
reporting and sometimes irreverent commentary, we relate the enormous richness,
contradiction, and vitality that defines the Asian American experience to
stimulate debate, raise awareness, and build bridges within and beyond our own
community. Based in San Francisco, Hyphen is recognized nationwide as an
authority on contemporary Asian American identity. Since its inception, Hyphen
has been touted in print, online and on camera. Hyphen has been featured or
quoted in media outlets such as Yahoo, ESPN, San Francisco Chronicle, Boston
Globe, Houston Chronicle, Utne, Flavorpill, Gothamist
