Celebrating Japanese culture and community in Vancouver, the 36th annual Powell Street Festival runs Aug. 4 to 5 in various Downtown Eastside locations and features live music, theatre, food, film, martial arts demonstrations, walking tours and visual arts. On Aug. 4, 8 p.m., the festival presents Triple Threat, featuring jazz pianist/vocalist Emi Meyer, folk singer Ana Miura, and local theatre favourite Maiko Bae Yamamoto and singer-songwriter Veda Hille performing something called Veda Hille’s Karate Theatre of Earth. We’re already intrigued. It all goes at the World Arts Centre at the Goldcorp Centre for the Arts (149 West Hastings). Tickets at brownpapertickets.com/event/259399 or at door.
