Goshiki Sanran Aftermath!

As promised, here is a massive post with some images and the pieces from our “Goshiki Sanran” concerts. It was a wonderful experience, although most of my memories are of furiously practicing either in at my house in Japan or in the hotel in Korea. Please forgive a little bit of roughness in the performance.

Below are mp3s taken from both concerts, and the pictures are from our 3/23 concert in Kitakami.

I’ll post the final newspaper article from the Nichi-Nichi as a comment after I scan it this afternoon.

    So.. what does the article say?

    Wow.

    Seriously.

    It’s kinda interesting, too, how the background of the newspaper photo looks red, white, and blue. You think the Nichi-Nichi’s got some overseas funding?!

    Congratulations, man. Very impressive. I haven’t had a chance to listen yet, but I’m looking forward to it.

    For the sake of space, I had to take down some of the mp3s of the show. I’ve just left up my pieces for now, but I might have to some more cuts, so download them while you can!
