Yo Gabba Gabba! in LA and Vincent Who? on DVD

Sometimes you just have to do a post geared toward the youngsters.

The good folks at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center in Los Angeles and Visual Communications are putting on a free outdoor screening of Yo Gabba Gabba! and Ultraman at the JACCC Plaza in Little Tokyo, this Friday June, 25th at 6:30 pm.

244 S. San Pedro St.
Little Tokyo, Downtown LA

If you get in line early, you and your kiddies (please don’t say it’s just you…) can meet Muno, Brobee and Plex from Yo Gabba Gabba! until 8:30.

Adults can enjoy DJ Ultraman spinning a set in between your trips to the Lomo Arigato Peruvian/Japanese food truck.

This week mark’s the DVD release of Tony Lam’s documentary Vincent Who? which gauges the progress (or lack thereof) of Asian America decades after the brutal murder of Vincent Chin in Detroit and the unjust acquittal of his killer, a laid-off auto worker who had mistaken the Chinese American engineer for someone of Japanese descent.

As someone who didn’t know about Vincent Chin’s murder until adulthood (despite growing up in the next state over from the site of the murder), I believe Vincent Who? — along with Christine Choy and Renee Tajima-Pena’s Oscar-nominated Who Killed Vincent Chin? — should be required viewing for everyone, young and old, Asian American or otherwise.

The DVD is now available for purchase on the film’s official website.
