Played an event called Cross Road tonight at Wasted Time in Shibuya. Much thanks to the organizer, the venue, the other artitsts, and of course to everybody who came out to listen.
The artists on the bill...
First: Otete. Two pianists playing jazz-flavored instrumentals. A cheerful mood. Their site is here.
Third: a four-piece jam band called TimeCamp. Sound seems influenced by The Boom, etc. One of the guitarists played up on a (step-)ladder. Their site is here.
Fourth: a three-piece with male-female vocals called Pines Mines. Energetic and cheerful, with 60s British pop etc. influences. A stirring performance. Their site is here.
Fifth: a female piano singer-songwriter called Asuka Aoya. A buoyant singing style, featuring songs like the Sazae-san theme. Her site is here.
The next two hashigo shows are on 7/29 at UHU in Shizuoka, and on 8/25 at Ongaku no Jikan in Mitaka. The 8/25 show is a hashigo event, coinciding with the release of our two new EPs. Details are here.
Oh, yeah. The new EPs. Today we got Ayako Uchida and Iori Shiranui from dodo to join us in recording a song for one of the new EPs. dodo! Too adorable for words. If we could fit them in our pockets, we'd risk jail time to shoplift them.
(Or does that sound creepy?)
