We’re with the band…

By admin • July 6th, 2017

I apologize for being so late in getting these photos up but NMFT11 is happening soon in October 2017 and finalizing the line-up took priority.
We started taking photos of the audience and bands with NMFT4. It was an idea I stole from Chatmonchy. Obviously Chatmonchy wasn’t the first band to ever take a group photo with their audience but they did it at the end of every show and would always post the photos up in their web blog.
Back then very few bands took such photos but now everyone’s doing it so the novelty’s worn off and I admit that we haven’t been putting as much effort into doing these group shots anymore.
The group photos don’t look as iconic and badass as previous years which is a shame since NMFT10 was arguably the best tour ever. So the bad news is the quality of the photos is not up to par with previous years because in the past we used nice DSLR cameras and this time most of the shots are from Bryan’s cellphone. The good news is I plan to bring The Taupe, Yubisaki Nohaku, Bakyun the everyday and YSTZ back to Canada for NMFT12 in May 2018. They’ll be joined by the awesome Elephant Gym from Taiwan and will take even better photos then. 🙂

Yup. That’s it. We only remembered to take a group photo with The Taupe.

2017.05.20 Lee’s Palace

2017.05.22 Divan Orange

2017.05.24 Biltmore Cabaret

Thanks to Bryan for shooting the photos! Pretty damn good for a cellphone.
Vincent took the photos at Lee’s Palace. He used a mirrorless camera and the higher quality is noticeable.
Stay tuned for video footage from Vincent because shooting video is his main forte and I’ll put a bunch of his videos in the tour recap post.
Once again, thanks Bryan and Vincent!

Spread the love

Also, as I can’t edit my previous comment:

NMFT 12 WILL BE AMAZING!? May 2018 is so close, yet so far! I’m (of course) really excited to see my beloved Tsurezure again, but having all of my favorites from NMFT 10 is a blessing!

It’s all good news from the NMFT headquarters today. I just saw on Twitter that 午前3時と退屈 might return for Vol 11?!
Speaking of a “tour recap post” – I’d love if you could also round up some links where we can buy music from the bands. (If not itunes, Bakyun the Everyday and Nengu are on Bandcamp, etc.)

Holy fucking shit! I know it doesn’t say so here, but I see that you got Charan-Po-Rantan for NMFT 11! I’ve wanted to see them forever. In fact, I was just watching a new live video of theirs on Youtube and I just Googled them to see what they’ve been up to. The first result was the link to this site.

I can’t wait until October. I don’t even know who else is playing since I can’t seem to find it anywhere on the site, but I already know this is going to be the best NMFT yet.

Ahhhh wait. I think I fucked up. The first result says Next Music From Tokyo Vol. 11, but I think the page is just up there from the last time they played. That’s a bummer. 🙁

It’s too bad about the Rivoli photos but the others look pretty good. I can’t wait to see the video as well. Speaking of the Rivoli I hope you’ll continue to use it for future editions. Lee’s is a great venue but I’d say the sound and lighting were even better at the Rivoli show. Anyway I look forward to NMFT 11 and 12!
