(viewed 644 times)
The fringe concerts at Earth Celebration are free public affairs, which is why we've got lots of pictures and video of them.

But here's a sneaky snap of some of the audience.

First picture of the brewery itself by The BBG: second picture of one of its products by me. Robert de Niro is a big fan of Hokusetsu sake, hence the photo of his obviously drunk face on the front of the bottle.
