HFS at the Knitting Factory, 5/9

May 21, 2008

Check out all the videos on youtube from our Knitting Factory gig. There was only one sound-guy working the show, so we filled up the dead time with an impromptu session of unplugged Okinawan tunes. Thanks, JC, for the cool night-vision shots and for posting everything!!!

HAPPYFUNSMILE in April and May

May 13, 2008

HAPPYFUNSMILE had a very busy month of April. We drove over to Washington DC to participate in their annual Sakura Matsuri (4/12). Back home in NYC, we performed at the Columbia University Sakura Matsuri (4/18), and then a few of us played with Gaijin a Go Go at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden Sakura Matsuri (5/4). HAPPYFUNSMILE performed with Ladybug, Love Etc, and Zan at the Knitting Factory (5/9). Our next performance will be at the New York Buddhist Church, where we are raising money for our upcoming summer Obon Tour in California!
