Makoto Taiko: Miyake @ 10th Anniversary Concert
Miyake Daiko is an energetic style of Taiko characterized by a driving beat with the drums positioned horizontally and set on very low stands. This style of drumming originated on Miyake Island, which is located out in the Pacific Ocean, south of Tokyo, with an active volcano situated in the middle of it. The piece is unique in the way the drummers must position themselves to play the drums. It is a beautiful playing style to watch, in which the drums are completely free to resonate.
Performed at Makoto Taiko’s 10th Anniversary Concert at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse on August 22, 2009.
Sound lags in the beginning, but starts to sync up after 2 minutes.
That awkward moment when I rip my shorts because I have to get into a low stance to practice a piece with my taiko group. >.<

"I did not lose my passion for the entertainment industry, so, for my fans, there’s a lot of great things in the works…
So hang in there.”
Group hug, everyone.
Also, when Jessica paused and noticed that the fans were singing ‘At Least I Still Have You’, I legit cried T___T Her Chinese fans are the best <3

"Live At The Smell" is a DVD to be released by ColdHandsVideo that captures 10 of the most vital bands to perform at the Smell, downtown LA’s essential all-ages venue. With over 2 hours of live performance footage, this is an essential video document for the alternative / indie / noise-rock fan.
From the hyper-active intro by The Mae Shi, through the heavy moods of Gowns, the precise thrash of HEALTH, to the dark techno distopia of Captain Ahab, Live at the Smell presents a showcase of the excellent music that the community-oriented venue presents on any given day of the week, without booking agents, backroom deals, bouncers, velvet ropes, ID checks, schmoozing, or hype. All footage was shot from Sept-Oct 2008. (featuring: The Mae Shi, Foot Village, Ponytail, Abe Vigoda, High Places, Gowns, Barr, No Age, Health, Captain Ahab.)
