Sakura Taiko Fest: Japanese Drumming Performance
Date/Time: April 9th, 12 noon-2:00 pm
Location: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, Dekelboum Hall, University of Maryland
Website: Sakura Taiko Fest
The fifth annual Sakura Taiko Fest is a free event which features Japanese drumming performances from a collection of East Coast taiko groups. As a part of the National Cherry Blossom Festival, this energizing family-friendly show explores a range of different drumming styles, and celebrates Japanese cultural and artistic traditions from professional, community, and Buddhist taiko groups.
The Sakura Taiko Fest has grown each year, which we hope to continue this year in a beautiful new theater at the University of Maryland’s Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Last year five taiko groups traveled from up and down the east coast and played over two hours of traditional and modern taiko. One group brought in an electric guitar for a heavy metal version of a classic song, while other groups came together to play community favorites. Guests also had the opportunity to try taiko themselves and meet the drummers.
The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center is located at the College Park campus of the University of Maryland. Parking is free in select lots on the weekends and public transport is also available to campus through metro busses, and the #104 campus shuttle from the metro station. Full directions and parking details are available here: http://theclarice.umd.edu/parking-and-directions

I am Damian Kidd and I am running against Jason Chafffetz to represent Utah’s third congressional district. I will be available to meet with D.C. residents for a meet and greet/town hall event on Friday evening(3/17) from 5-8pm at the Key Bridge Marriott, 1401 Lee Highway, Arlington, VA Virginia
Mr. Chaffetz is losing credibility and support at home and in Washington, D.C. He has ignored the principles of limiting federal government in local affairs and local self-determination. We embrace these principles here in Utah.
When in Congress I pledge to never meddle in DC affairs and to be vocal against any congressman/woman who does.

Can someone recommend movers for a very small (1-2 hour) job? We have a couch in storage that we want moved to our house. We want it placed upstairs, and it’s a tricky space that I expect will be difficult. Because of that, I’d prefer to use movers that are licensed and insured (as opposed to Task Rabbit, etc.) Thanks for any ideas!

It’s official people: we live in the post-truth era. Look it up, I’ll wait. So how do you determine what’s real and what isn’t? How do you sift through the information overload? Well, here’s a good place to start. We’ve got six highly knowledgeable and funny people. Each of them is going to inform you a little bit on ten different topics. You, the audience, decide what’s reality and what’s horse bologna. If you guess correctly, they have to face the consequences. And you can bet the stakes will be high.

We live in Brookland and only have access to street parking in front of our house. I’d like to buy a little electric car like a Nissan Leaf, but I’m not sure how I’d charge it. Is anyone aware of a city program to make car charging easier? Does anyone have an electric car and charge it somewhere other than through their garage?
