cool things at the porter exhange  
I was asked to give a reminder about my porter exchange taiko gig tonight. I figured I could also use this post to tell people about the other cool things happening there today.

1:00 & 3:00 pm - Live Koto and Shamisen music complimented with a dancing performance by Sumie Kaneko and Michiko Kurata
2:00 pm - Aikido show by Yasu Itoh
4:00 pm - Origami demonstration by Brian Chan
5:00 pm - Wadaiko - live Japanese Drum ensemble performance by Odaiko New England

With on-going festival events throughout the day, including:
- Water Balloon Fishing (Yo-yo Tsuri)
- Juggling (Otedama)
- Brush and Ink Calligraphy (Shuuji)
- Tea Tasting
- Fortune Telling
- Raffle Ticket event

I would be that wadaiko stuff at 5pm. Were playing 3 songs and audience participation. We are very loud, so if you are at least bit sound sensitive, I'd suggest bringing hearing protection.

I'm busy all afternoon, but I appreciate being told about such things.

(sorry for poor english, I'm russian)

Was it realy Origami demonstration by Brian Chan there? did you see it? how much people have vizitede you show? I just like to new all in the world and interesting in all the things.
I new also that a drummer is the most impotant person in group, becouse if a lider or singer makes a fall -- people can think that was an improvisation, but a mistake of the drummer crashes all the miracle of rithm.

I didn't get a chance to see too many of the other events.

We're almost all being drummers, so the dynamic is different. We had a good sized crowd, given the limited space. ~30 people is my guess. I've played for more, but it was a good audience.

Kyoko told me about the gig and I was thinking about going, but the jet lag has gotten to me and I don't think I can get out of bed to go outside >< I hope it goes awesome!
