To our thoughtful contributors, our stunning performers, and, of course, our awesome readers, a million thanks from the Kami Team for coming out to PINE BROOKLYN last weekend and letting your HAIR down! We couldn't and wouldn't have done it without you all. Can't wait to see you this summer for issue 4, Yorimichi!
