A friend of mine is part of the organizing committee of this awesome
soccer/cultural event happening in Lowell this summer. They are looking
for vendors (so if you know some, pass this on), and folks to perform
during the weekend. I'm going to organize a volunteer crew of folks to
go dance/drum so if you want to join me, please get in touch at
erichludwig [at] yahoo dot com. Thanks! We'll drum during games, and
maybe even perform on field at halftime of some games.
If you enjoy sport and community, come on out! The ONE Lowell World Cup
