Man, I’m wrecked after Tokyo Dark Castle (awesome night, I’ll get a report out this week). Anyway… The Damned are hitting Japan this week. Igor was dreaming of heading out to see Mister Vanian, Captain Sensible and crew on Sunday July 3rd.

Alas, it is not to be :-( . Igor will be going on a ramen tour with a few friends as part of a reunion tradition in Tochigi’s Sano city – one of the noodle mecca’s in Japan. I’m a bit sad, but it is not a bad cop. In the words of Neo, great noodles.

While The Damned are electrifying Tokyo I’ll be driving back to Tokyo after enjoying the fine ramen and gyouza of Tokano ramen shop. I heard that the first Tokyo show is sold out, but there might be some tickets for other shows. Igor might plant himself outside the Monday place just to get a glimpse of the stars. If you see a forlorn gaijin salaryman skulking about the place, it’ll probably be me dreaming of scoping a glimpse of the legends.

Anyway, here’s the details of the events in case you want to see if any tix are available…

Wed., June 29: The Damned @ Club Quattro Hiroshima
Thu., June 30: The Damned @ Club Quattro Shinsaibaishi, Osaka
Fri., July 1: The Damned @ Club Quattro Nagoya
Sun., July 3: The Damned @ Club Quattro Shibuya, Tokyo
Mon., July 4: The Damned @ Liquid Room Ebisu, Tokyo
