"Has your djembe been collecting dust? Have you been thinking of getting into percussion, but you're unsure where to start? We'll have local musicians playing their tunes and covers for us to jam along with. All types of percussion are welcome, or you can play anything that Index Drum makes," says Landon Miller at Rhino Coffee.

All ages, free admission, BYOB. And Rhino will have pizza and drinks available.

"Everything we sell is handmade in our workshop in Louisiana," says Paul F King, proprietor of Index Drums. "The drums are built in small batches, and special care is taken to ensure that no two are exactly alike. Our drums have been played in live shows, house parties, church services, belly dance performances, and countless drum circles. They play well with traditional drums, and the variety of tones possible from each drum will not disappoint. Since the first run of cajons, we have been constantly experimenting with new forms of instruments, amplification, and manufacturing processes."
