Asian Persuasion All Stars

5:08pm - 6:08pm

Asian Persuasion All Stars is a collective of Vancouver-based Asian and non-Asian indie rock musicians. We joined forces together as a way to combat the rise in Anti-Asian racism in Metro Vancouver during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have recently released our cover of the ska classic, “Racist Friend,” originally by the Special AKA in 1984, which is available for download from Bandcamp and can be heard on all streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, etc. All proceeds from downloads and streams will go toward supporting Elimin8hate (, a Vancouver organization working to interrupt, dismantle and eliminate anti-Asian racism at all levels through an approach that affects change via education, media representation, policy changes and community organizing.

Asian Persuasion All Stars will be releasing a video for “Racist Friend” ( on Friday, August 20 at noon, and will be making their live performance debut at LanaLou’s on Sunday, September 19, 7pm. Also on the bill will be China Syndrome, Norine Braun and Alice Fraser, Swimming Hammers, and the Hathaway Brothers. Advance tickets for the show are available at
