Tokyo Day 7: Gyoza Party!!

Ryotaro called me and let me know his band’s playing tonite down the street from my hotel. So I’ll be checking out Kulu Kulu Garden @ Shinjuku Motion before heading to Shimokita ERA for the gyoza party with susquatch, uhnellys and sgt. Kubota (MOTFD manager) said they might not be able to make it due […]

Tokyo Day 2: family reunion

I decided to take it easy during the day. I caught up on some much needed sleep, wrote a blog entry about the show last night, validated my 3-week JR pass, scored reserve tickets for NATSUMEN’s Endless Summer Jam one-man show (12/21) @ SHELTER (which I thought would be sold out for sure), went to […]

Pocket Aces (pt1 ft Natsuko Miyamoto)

When it comes to Dope Female Bassists, you won’t get a more attractive pair than: In an unlikely pairing, MOTFD performed with BASE BALL BEAR during the latter’s LIVE MATHEMATICS TOUR 09. The matchup isn’t actually that surprising since both bands are signed to EMI (though at the time MOTFD were technically still with Avocado […]
