la hart au col
hashigo played a show a couple of days ago at Wasted Time in Shibuya. thanks a lot to everybody who came to listen. it's always nice to play in front of a pretty full house.
the show was a double record release by Mikihito Nakahira and a band called Strings Club. thanks a lot to them for having us, and to everybody at the venue.
our set list:
- kanashimi ha chishiki de aru
- inshu sanpo
- ato no matsuri
without realizing it, i think we put together a pretty pop-heavy set list. sort of.
the other artists
Mikihito Nakahira is the gravelliest-voiced representative of Japanese blues we've ever heard. his site: http://www.kemusi-blues.com/
Strings Club is a fun, energetic group who also had a CD to release on the same day. Their site: http://ameblo.jp/strings-club-k/
New Tokyo Smart Ballers is an instrumental band with violin, accordion, clarinet, etc. Their site: http://about.me/newtokyosmartballers
and there were two DJs on hand, rotating wax: Machida Rongai & Gomisshi. an extravagant lineup, huh?
what about the next hashigo show?
thanks for asking. we're playing on Oct. 1 at Ongaku No Jikan in Mitaka, as part of the venues three-year anniversary series of shows. anybody who doesn't come is a loser.
