Lestat’s – Kina Grannis/David Choi/Jane Lui

I’m in Normal Heights in San Diego.. (a bit of a sketchy area… the shop next door surrounded  by people dressed in goth) but I’d risk it to check out David Choi, Kina Grannis, and Jane Lui live at Lestat’s Coffee House in San Diego. My first time here too.


The line went 5 stores down and continuing. I hope everyone gets in. I hope I get in. I’ll update this through the night so you can check my blog on wordpress to get updates.

Btw, I know I’m at the right place cause all the asians… One guy was talking about physics and I just heard a power ranger ringtone go off… oh asians.


Update: Just got into the venue. It’s CRAZY. The house is packed and I mean, no standing room/no sitting room/no sitting on the ground room. I’m sitting up in the front in the aisle (exit path & bathroom path) between seat sections. If there’s a fire we’re screwed.

Update: Okay I was just asked if I wanted to sit on stage because they are out of room. So of course I said yes. This is funny cause I came 15 min before the show and not just the best seat in the house but on the actual stage. Crazy.


Kina poses for a picture from backstage.

Kina, Jane, and David collab on each other’s songs.

Update: I’ll upload videos at the bottom later on.

… Okay it’s getting really hot up here cause of the intense spot lights. but still worth it.


Jane surrounded by her instruments… keyboard, music box, and… other instrument.

Kina and her socks… someone shouted “Costco socks!” lol.

It was an awesome show! Amazingly talented artists with such charisma. It’s rare (at least for me) to get a chance to watch popular Asian-American musicians perform live.

If you feel the same way, please help out by supporting my event called LUMINANCE @ The Loft – UC San Diego hosting popular Asian American artists in San Diego. To read more about the event, please click HERE. Hopefully, I can work with these awesome artists sometime in the near future.

Some videos I recorded (on my new Canon 790 IS camera! I think Jane had the same one) from tonight are below, enjoy!

Thanks for the awesome footage. I was there but unfortunately I couldn’t get any pics or video. The batteries died in my camera :( I would love to help support your event or upcoming events thereafter. But I don’t know how. =/

(I hope I didn’t get post this twice by accident)
