In Brief: rare Samurai weaponry and The Parkas

And they said
he was the last samurai...

Forget Tom Cruise. Beginning Saturday, Apr. 10, Museum London will be host to the exhibit Samurai: The Warrior Class in Japan.

Owned by the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the collection will include 75 wood block prints and scroll paintings that illustrate the battles of these warriors, as well as rare artifacts of Samurai weaponry for those who get a rise out of seeing swords, daggers and armoury.

The opening reception takes place on Friday, Apr. 16, and Museum London will be showing Akira Kurosawa’s classic film Seven Samurai on Sunday, Apr. 25 to coincide with the exhibit.

Parkas set to tour
The Parkas will offer a few more southern Ontario dates before embarking on a Cross-Canada Spring Breakout Tour in late April.

Tomorrow, The Parkas will perform with The Flints at the El Mocambo in Toronto, before travelling to The Atria in Oshawa on Apr. 10. The Parkas will end their brief southern trip with a “going-away party” on Saturday, Apr. 17; The Parkas will open up for Raising the Fawn at the Horseshoe Tavern, in Toronto.
