Got the opportunity to go to ECAASU 2012. Now for all my westcoast head, you may wonder what that is, since I am also from the westcoast and have never really heard what it is, but honestly glad I found out. Its a conference for the asian american college students in the east coast. One of the coolest random thing is that there was a good amount of non-asians in these clubs.
Joseph was invited to be the featured performer at Duke University for about 900 students from organizations up and down the east coast. Upon arriving I didn’t have much though except that I was taking a crapload of layovers because lets be quite frank. North Carolina isn’t exactly the “poppin’” place to visit. Nonetheless we arrived and we got to explore what Duke University was about. Apparently the guy who started Duke University was trying to buy Princeton, and they wouldn’t let him so dude just make a exact replica. Hahah straight bootleg city!
Being from the east with so much more history the area felt rich with history. The campus was quite beautiful with its greenary. Got to explore into the Gardens. Also they do this thing called Tenting where they tent out for a month to wait for these tickets for the Duke vs North Carolina basketball game.
I love southern food. Shits just good. I love fried chicken. So when I heard about this spot called Dame’s Chicken & Waffles. I HAD TO GO.
This was delicious. It was very much like the Roscoes over out here in LA. Tons of black people, and sprinkles of white & asians trying to “TRY NEW THINGS”
All in all the trip was quite eventful. Joseph got to meet a widespread of his fans and excited for the chance to perform for more of the schools out there, especially when his ALBUM TOUR happens! :)
I’ve been fairly business the past couple weeks getting read to plan this album for Joseph and keeping him busy. We got some big projects coming out, and I really can’t wait for you guys to listen to the stuff he’s been recording in the studio. Things have been nuts!
