UPDATE: Due to unforeseen circumstances, ISA New York and Boston have been cancelled. All tickets will be refunded through Ticketmaster and the respective concert venues. Donations can still be made to 4c The Power here.
This year’s International Secret Agents concert series is heading to New York City! The show, run by 4C The Power, takes place in cities all around the United States and allows different branches of creativity, such as film-making, DJing, dance, and artistry, to shine in a unique setting.
ISA’s New York debut took place in the city’s most historic venue – Webster Hall, and had nothing short of a packed house. Fans lined up from the early afternoon hours to secure a spot in the venue as their own peers were setting up for the show inside.
You heard me correctly – peers. For this event, 4C The Power allows a unique opportunity to young adults to volunteer to work at the event. Whether they’ll be handling ticket sales, ticket collecting at the door, merch sales, or handling promotional materials – just to name a few – the concert is nearly completely run by volunteers.
However, that’s not the only opportunity 4C The Power offers these young adults. Along with the aforementioned opportunity, the charity runs workshops along with the show’s headliners to mirror the professional side of the arts world. In 2010, Far East Movement showed the volunteers the ropes on how to write hip hop music. Wong Fu Productions taught them a few things about film making, and Lydia Paek of Quest Crew even taught a dance clinic. This year’s workshops will include Far East Movement’s hip hop music workshop, Poreotics’ dance workshop, a singing/instrumental workshop with AJ Raphael, and a comedy and acting workshop by youtube-famous KevJumba.
It’s only 5 days until ISA takes over the Big Apple. Are you ready, New York?!
If you are not in the New York City area, don’t worry! ISA will be hitting several cities in the U.S. For more info, visit http://www.internationalsecretagents.com
