Open Mic Night
From time to time, the JETs in Tokushima do an "Open Mic Night." This past weekend, I had the opportunity to host what will probably be the last of these events. With the July departure of fellow Seattlelite and "Open Mic Night" creator, Anthony Uno, this probably marks the end of a 3-year Tokushima tradition. These events spotlight the good, bad and ugly of hidden talents some JETs have or think they have in the ken. "Open Mic Night" brings out attempts at playing musical instruments, singing, dancing, and even some stand-up comedy. Whether the performances are good or bad, the overall evening is usually very entertaining with aid of a few beers.
