    Hi Jesse,This looks like a great set! Thank you for working with CN to decide the set in advance; personally, I think it saves a lot of time so the group can focus on the most important part--the dancing! We did Kako Kolan last year, but it was in the middle of the set...and I think that set had a very different overall "feel," so I think it's fine to do it again (we did it as three duets last year, so maybe we can do something different this time just to mix it up a bit). Plus, it's just a really playful mid-tempo song, so it'll be fun as an opener. We've got a great set and a great performance time...now I just have to hope my back gets better in a hurry!

    Thanks Jesse, I'm really enjoying this set.Out of curiosity, I looked up the lyrics for "Kako Kolan" and "Lacul."  Thought I'd share what I found:Kako Kolan -- http://omniumrecords.com/balkans/lyrics.html (scroll to bottom)This appears to be the same song, but with a slightly longer title.  Just for fun, here is a more Balkan brass-sounding recording: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8fDoIj88qALacul - https://soundcloud.com/augusthoerr/laculApparently, the lyrics are a late 19th-century Romanian poem.

    Thursdays before Level 3 generally work for me.  I know for sure that I wouldn't be able to do the 28th.Also, is it too early to start coordinating rides?  I think the venue is BART-able, but I would prefer not to be on public transportation in my ATS finery ...
