matcha: drunken fist, august 7

All right, Bay Area friends. Once again, it's time for MATCHA, the Asian Art Museum's monthly art/music/mixer series. This is the one I've been waiting for: Drunken Fist, featuring a martial arts demonstration from international champions Philip Wong and Zhang Hong Mei, the museum's summer exhibition Power and Glory: Court Arts of
China's Ming Dynasty
, and fresh tunes from DJ Phatrick. Here are the details:
MATCHA: Drunken Fist
Thursday, August 7, 5:00-9:00 pm
$5 Admission
Asian Art Museum

You've seen Jet Li do it in movies---now watch international champions Philip Wong and Zhang Hong Mei lead members of their martial arts school Pacific Wushu in an electrifying jaw-dropping performance of fierce fighting infused with complex movements, speed, and artistic expression.

View our summer exhibition Power & Glory: Court Arts of China's Ming Dynasty, jump on guided gallery tours of Asian weaponry, make a rank badge or brush painting, tune in to a talk on shaolin martial arts, drop in on a tai chi demonstration (or try it yourself), sip on a cocktail with friends, and "kick it" with DJ Phatrick (of APEX Express and Native Guns) who'll be spinning a fresh mix of hip hop, funk, and soul.

MATCHA is the perfect way to get your monthly arts and culture fix. Watch performances, stroll the galleries, create art, mingle over cocktails, and enjoy music.
