Welt Buhne is a new event featuring Mushi (imagine an eastern bloc mix of Alice Cooper and Marilyn Manson) and Pineal (a sultry horned-grocker with continental flavorings plus a hot ax-working femme). Mushi and Pineal make a good combination and this show seems to be playing towards their strengths with an underlying theme of old-world darkness.

You can book tix beforehand by jumping to one of the bands’ sites and sending a mail to reserve (or going to the Loppi Station @ your local Lawson – see code above). If you can’t deal with sites in Japanese, pick a band with some English on the site – 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.
