‘Tis a Halloween night and Japan’s Goth-Daddy Genet is busy celebrating his 25th year in the business. His baby and Tokyo’s biggest Goth event is on. The hardest industrial group in Japan is on the flyer. Insanity is the only word to describe this, but you would be mad to miss it.
Yes, Tokyo Dark Castle is heading to dominate Shibuya once again, with the special Halloween edition. TDC #13 (review) was the perfect event, now TDC #14 is set to shred it to pieces. This is the next evolution and the second-to-last event of the year.
Starting early @ 10 p.m. with the now-traditional Shibuya Goth Parade, followed by a night featuring some of Japan’s best underground bands with some hot DJing and VJing going on in between.
So get dressed to kill and ready to thrill as you trip the night fantastic at TDC #14!
If you want to book tickets beforehand to save some cash or afford another drink, you can usually jump to one of the bands’ sites and send a mail to reserve. If you can’t deal with the Japanese, pick a band with some English on the site (the more, the better) and let them know things like name, phone number, number of people. After that, when you get to the gig, you give your name and which band you booked with (they check the lists). Doing this not only saves you a bit of money, but helps the bands at the end of the night when the numbers are tallied up for the payout.
