SATURDAY: TOWN DAY
After experiencing the best that Arlington has to offer at Town Day, head over to GARAGE BAND, an After-Party organized by Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture (ArtsArlington.org) and hosted by Arlington Service Station. Bring your dancing shoes to fully enjoy a diverse program of swing, Latin, and Japanese musical traditions performed by master musicians in the town's hippest new open-air venue for the arts - an old-time neighborhood garage covered with polka dots! With:
* ODAIKO NEW ENGLAND - Dynamic ensemble performing and preserving a traditional Japanese form of drumming
* DAN FOX FOXTET - Arlington band leader, educator and captain of the Morningside Music School brings a swing band dedicated to getting folks on the dance floor!
* GRUPO FANTASIA - This panoply of Latin/Caribbean styles is the brainchild of Dominican multi-instrumentalist Angel Wagner, blending styles including merengue, salsa, Latin jazz, cumbia, bachata and vallenato
