Tonight I decided not to go to a really hot-looking event in Ikebukuro Chop which included, among others, Jet Pepper Tower and Speed-ID. It is kind of depressing being here in my tower missing out on these things. Hopefully there will be another wild night at Chop or Urga that I can go to.

Actually tomorrow night there will be a good event at Urga with bands like Nicht and (drool) Destruct System. Hmm, maybe I will have the energy to go there.

A late announcement for an event that has a good dose of Goth going down. All artists Musu Bore, Psydoll, Shingguapoura and Nicht have connections to the Goth and underground scene so this is looking like a very good night indeed.

I haven’t got out much this year due to ongoing health issues (or unhealth issues – take your pick), but have seen a few interesting shows where I can, like the one at Design Festa in May. Design Festa is the biggest art festival in Asia (according to the PR), but I really wasn’t looking for art… However it also has an outdoor stage where you can catch quite a few local indy bands, which is much more figgable to a miscreant like me. More importantly, it had an industrial-Goth band, Nicht, doing a set, which I had to see. The plan was to get out there, see Nicht (at 1 p.m!), and get out of Dodge ASAP. As we all know, all plans go to hell. One band led to another and I wound up enjoying a lot of great loud stuff from hard rock to metal to blackcore and more. It rocked and I got quite a number of pixies… So take a look at part 1…
