Sayonara Goto-san and best wishes to all of ミドリ

後藤まりこ, ミドリは最高なバンドでした。 さよなら、ありごとうと宜しく! I’m an idiot. I knew about Midori’s concert on Dec 30 and bought a ticket for it over a week ago without knowing the significance of the event. (Due to the fact I can’t read kanji well at all!) I had met and talked with Mariko Goto in October and she was […]

Tokyo Day 13: haisuinonasa / Cromatic 10 goku / hehishimism

Went to 3 shows in one night. Sorry I’m so behind in my posts/show reviews. The posts take a long time to write up (since I include pics and upload/add youtube clips). I’m really busy so the editting of posts with full show reviews will take time to finish. (Don’t want to spend too much […]

Tokyo Day 12: Summer in Tokyo in December

The Natsumen show @ Shelter was one of the greatest shows I’ve ever been to. I might be nuts but I asked them to come to Canada in October and they (including the manager) were esctatic. 7 band members + 1 manager = 8 people. Instead of paying for flights for every member I might […]

Tokyo Day 11: toe, LOSTAGE, AS MEIAS @ O-east and meet up with MOTFD, sgt. & uhnellys

Tickets for the toe/LOSTAGE show weren’t actually sold out so I bought one yestarday in case noone actually put me on the guest list. MOTFD’s manager called me today and said we’d meet with sgt at the show then head to Ruby Room to watch uhnellys. He said I was an idiot for buying a […]

Tokyo Day 10: 4 shows (almost 6) in one day.

Started the day off at Shibuya O-nest to watch uhnellys and tacobonds @ the Fujii Yoshie (Garorins) tribute. Almost went to Tamachi with Ian to watch MIR but had to go to Sangenjaya Heaven’s Door to watch and talk with Bugy Craxone. Ian is pissed and laid a massive guilt trip on me. Went to […]

Tokyo Day 9: Lagitagida vs kowloon….. vs kuruucrew & ooioo

I’ll be going to watch Lagitagida vs Kowloon at Shimokita ERA tonight. Keisaku Nakamura whom I met in Osaka as the support keyboardist for sgt (and toe) normally plays for the bands Kowloon, stim and Hotel New Tokyo. (Damn, he’s in alot of bands!) Both LGT and Kowloon are on Perfect Music Records. And even […]

Tokyo Day 8: 38YolzNoboAz… and Young = Nisenjuunennomondai

I’m headed off to Basement Bar to watch SuiseiNoboAz; 385; and Young; Yolz in the Sky. Then after that there’s an all-night club event @ Roppongi Eleven where nisennenmondai will be performing (hopefully not too late after midnight since I don’t plan on staying for the whole thing.) The best part is the show costs […]

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 5: ジンand Tonic

Day 4 of my trip to Japan was a bit of a write off since I was up drinking til 4am with sgt, MAS, Clean of Core, middle9, talking dead goats, oaqk, and fans at an all-you-can-drink Izakaya. (It was all you can drink for about $22 but you had a 2 hr time limit […]

Tokyo Day 3: Penguins Attack Osaka

On the 12th, I took the shinkansen (bullet train) from Tokyo to Osaka. It’s a 3 hour train ride if you take take the limited express. This particular train was about to leave in 2min but I had to get some food for the ride before I boarded. I bought 2 bento boxes more or […]
