Jason's Going Away Summer Pow-WoW for Charity
Saturday, June 15, 2013 at 9:00 PM - Sunday, June 16, 2013 at 2:00 AM (PDT)
It's time to say goodbye...
The last two years in LA have been nothing short of amazing, and I'm grateful for your friendship and all the good times. Sadly, I'll be leaving LA for Chicago to attend grad school for the next two years, and would love to hang and see you one last time before I venture out to the Windy City.
*5 Reasons You should not miss this party:
1/ The evening will feature a fun and curated experience of live-art and DJ's performing everything from soul, motown and funk to hip-hop, electro and house
2/ For a good cause - proceeds from donations and party will be benefiting the non-profit, Sessions LA, a music writing, production, recording and DJ'ing after-school program that uses hip-hop culture to mentor at-risk youth in Los Angeles
3/ You went to my Birthday Party for Charity and you're ready to rage again for Round 2
4/ Maybe the last time you'll get to see me DJ :0
5/ Party with Jason one last time!
What this Party is about: Going away + "The Pulse Collective" Cause
For those of you that know me well, one of my passions is building community - bringing people together and creating a fun and unique experience. I recently formed The Pulse Collective (a group of artists and DJ's bonded by their passion for creativity, self-expression and impact) to provide a forum...
- for Artists to share their talents
- for Fans to have a safe-haven and avenue in Los Angeles to explore new music
- for Non-Profits in the Los Angeles area to be positively impacted by our work
Put simply, The Pulse Collective aims to host bi-monthly DJ and Art shows, with proceeds benefitting local charities.
I couldn't think of a more perfect opportunity to launch the Pulse Collective Series, than my going away party, and to get things started, I have decided to work with the non-profit, Sessions LA, a music writing, production, recording and DJ'ing program for at-risk youth in Los Angeles. Their mission is to promote youth development, nurture critical thinking and foster community building through the process of creating music.
***All donations made on this eventbrite page, as well as that from the party, including proceeds from the bar will go directly to fund the programming of Sessions LA.

So why is this so important to me???
I believe that music can be a force for change because I would not be the same person I am today without it. Growing up as a SUPER shy child, I used music as my sheild for anything that life would throw at me. Learning about music and experimenting with the drums, guitar, piano, violin and eventually turntables was a huge confidence builder and engendered a sense of happiness through creativity and challenge that carried over to the other areas of my life. Music is now, a part of my DNA - I live it, create it, breathe it, and obsess over it. Despite the ups and downs of my life, music has been a constant, providing me a safe-haven to create and to self-express - a gift that has translated into the confidence I now carry into my professional career. As such, I feel it's my mission to share this gift with others and allow others to have the same opportunities.
JASON'S GOING AWAY SUMMER POW-WOW FOR CHARITY
+ THE PULSE COLLECTIVE LAUNCH PARTY + SESSIONS LA CHARITY SUPPORT
I wouldn't usually publicly celebrate a going away party for myself, but I figure this’ll be a good way to get the homies together, listen to some of my favorite DJs, and raise some much needed funds for a program I believe in - SESSIONS LA.
