Friday Foto: Rose Parade

This New Year’s Day, I woke up early and went to Padadena for the 123rd Tournament of Roses Parade. Of the many marching bands, this was my favorite:

That’s a Japanese high-school band, almost all girls, from Kyoto Tachibana. Aside from their general awesomeness, they sounded different from American marching bands, which made them stand out from the lumpenband effect. Similarly cool: the Royal Swedish Navy Cadet Band.
