So I finally made it to the First Friday Drum Circle last night and had a pretty good time. I ended up sitting next to a guy who had a ton of various drum instruments so I was playing all sorts of stuff all night.

This was only about a third of the people who were there, and there were belly dancers rotating in and out of the middle and off to the side there were some fire dancers off in the street doing some crazy stuff.
I must have had a good time; this morning I was browsing for drum equipment. Just so you know my interest, here is a photo from high school:
Please pay attention to the drums (making my point) and IGNORE the feathered hair and cheesy moustache.
