Good in Gardena garage sale

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

In the GVJCI lobby, I’ll be holding a musician’s garage sale featuring musical instruments and other things we love. The sale will include the koto on which On Ensemble composed and first performed Gengakki (for $175!), a great-condition IBM Selectric typewriter, and a host of other satisfying home and work items.

Good in Gardena miracle berries arrived!

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

For those of you attending the meet-the-performers lunch, I’m pleased to let you know our shipment of miracle berry samples has arrived! The extract from these berries is formed into a pill that you dissolve on your tongue and that makes sour things taste sweet. We’ll have a variety of foods for tasting (apparently lemons are incredible)!

Sawada Seijyuuro, the award-winning tsugaru-shamisen player, will be playing a song or two for us at the lunch. He performed at an event we organized in Tehachapi yesterday. It was great! He’s got an amazing dynamic range; from tiny, technical, plucking, to all-out bashing. You’re in for a real treat!

Advance-sale concert tickets are available through midnight tonight! If you’re planning to come, ordering your ticket today makes our job a little easier. Thank you!
