APEX Express

Tonight, we dedicate a whole hour on a musical genre that is near and dear to our hearts: punk rock. This is an often misunderstood music form associated with disgruntled suburban white kids, but tonight, you’ll learn how punk rock has been an important part of liberation for Asian and Pacific Islanders here and abroad.

Next week, Aklasan Records presents an amazing Filipino punk showcase in San Francisco. We’ll hear from Josh Castro and Rupert Estanislao who run the label with a lot of passion. You’ll also hear from APEX Contributor Puck Lo who interviewed Yumi Lee, a one-time avid zine maker who is now the guitarist for punk band In School from New York.
