Picks: KODO

[MUSIC] FRIDAY, FEB. 1

Crash course in what you’ll see at a Japanese taiko drumming performance: An ensemble of percussionists playing drums that range in size from bedside table to studio apartment, often in a manner once used to rally troops in feudal Japan — the sort of thing you’d want to hear before getting in a fight. KODO is one of the biggest and best groups of Japanese taiko drummers, coming to Las Vegas to perform “Legend” — the Stomp! of feudal Japan. 7:30 p.m.; Reynolds Hall at The Smith Center, 362 Symphony Park Drive, 749-2012, $29-$89
