I'm currently at the Air Canada Lounge killing time until I board my flight to Narita/Tokyo.It's going to be a short trip of 7 nights duration. My shortest trip to Tokyo was 2 nights where I went specifically to watch Akiko Fukuoka (Chatmonchy) DJ @ Shibuya LUSH and viridian / Mudy on the 昨晩 play in Kyoto. That was nuts. I didn't even have time to develop jetlag.
The reason I have to go to Japan is to be there for the "unofficial" Next Music from Tokyo Vol 2 tour finale on Feb 22. Uhnellys have their "recohatsu" (new album release) concert and sgt., susquatch and Natsuko (MOTFD) will be performing along with others (eg cumulonimbus). It'll be a kick-ass event with lots going on aside from music.
