The Happening – Coming to Tokyo April 11, 2008

My world-roaming friend Will, (from the Surf Gallery down in Laguna), has been at it again.

Besides the art gallery he puts on these really groovy art/music/film festivals that are called “The Happening”. They just finished up one show down in Australia, at Bondi, (near Sydney)…and it looked like it was a very good time.

Will even sent me some video of the event that he had posted on YouTube. Check it out when you get a chance…they have a hot girl (Kassia Meador) MC’ing the video, which makes it even easier to watch.

Anyway Will says that they are off to Japan for the next stop on The Happening Tour

If you happen to be going to Japan, or are in Japan and looking at Southern California Surf Forecasts for some reason…maybe you will be able to make it to the show.

Here are the artists involved

Wolfgang Bloch, Jenny Bowers, Thomas Campbell, Jeff Canham, Joe Curren, Harry Daily, Andy Davis, Ned Evans, Herbie Fletcher, Julie Goldstein, Yusuke Hanai, Ryan Heywood, Andrew Holder, Robin Kegel, Andrew Kidman, Alex Knost, Alex Kopps, Greg LaMarche, David Lloyd, Emmett Malloy, John McCambridge, Jason Murray, Randy Noborikwa, Scott Richards, Scott Soens, Mark Sutherland, Kate Sutton, Koji Toyoda, Patrick Trefz, Tyler Warren, Peter Webb, Alex Weinstein and more.

Wow that is awesome, I remember going to the first one Will organized down in Laguna about 4 or 5 years ago. I'ts an amazing good time, great music, great art, and always a good vibe. If anyone has a chance to check one of the Happenings out, I highly recommend it!
