Special invitation to a free concert on Memorial Day by Ms. Kana Uemura of â€œToire no Kamisamaâ€ fame! That song was a â€œdai-hittoâ€ in 2010 in Japanand is probably responsible for causing more tears than even wasabi caused. Â She is on vacation & travelling solo in the USto recharge and learn more about the roots of American music. A beautiful person inside & out with pure talent.Date: Monday, May 28, 2012 Time: 8:00pm Location: Dominieâ€™s Bar at34-07 30thÂ Avenue,Astoria,Queensb/w 34thÂ &35thÂ Street Subway: N/Q to30thÂ Ave.is close; or M/R toSteinway St.
TV JAPAN a.k.a. NHK America, will be there to capture the concert on video for broadcasting on TV JAPAN so dress-up if you like, youâ€™ll be on TV! Should be a wonderful show! Ms. Uemura has a great voice and writes all of her own music too.
