Southern California Ukulele Showcase

Do you know what summer means in Little Tokyo?

That's right, free outdoor concerts at the Japanese American National Museum! Last night was the kickoff event for this year's "First & Central Summer Concerts" series. The concert featured one of my favorite instruments, the ukulele. The evening's artists were: Paula Fuga, Brittni Paiva, Abe Lagrimas, Moana, The Moonlighters, and King Kukulele.

Here's a short video of Brittni Paiva from the concert:

There are four more concerts scheduled for the summer. So don't say there's nothing to do in Little Tokyo - bring some friends and enjoy a nice Thursday evening in Little Tokyo with good music. And be sure to check out the museum too - it's free on Thursdays from 5-8pm.
