British Bonenkai: 12月12日(金)Tokyo Salon 神宮前 8pm

paul smithYou might be wondering why we have a picture of a multi-coloured mini. Well, we’ve been invited to perform a special acoustic set at a British Bonenkai event hosted by InterFm DJ Guy Perryman. Held at Tokyo Salon in Aoyama, it’s gonna be a brilliantly British evening celebrating connections between Japan and the UK with futuristic J-Pop band Neko Punch coming all the way from London town, a special fashion show screening of the latest Paul Smith collection, raffle prizes from Paul Smith and Mini (hence the picture), and loads of other great DJs spinning British hits: Ashley Harvey  (Visit Britain Japan Manager), Mike Burns (HMS Control DJ Crew) and Duck Rock (British Music Maniac). We’ll be doing our indie folk pop thing at about 10pm. Sounds cool right? More info. 日本とイギリスのエベントに是非遊びに来てください。いい音楽を聴きながら、素敵な場所でフィッシュアンドチップスを食べようね! //o-o\\

Balcony TV Appearance

Calling all Watanabes’ fans! Great news. We performed for Balcony TV and we’ve been featured on their official homepage. Bad news. We are currently in 11,746th place, and severely lagging behind the likes of Ed Sheeran and Mumford and Sons. We desperately need your help! Do us a big favour and click us into the Top 10. Or at least… the Top 10 thousand! ;) 助けてください!このビデオを見てくれるとす~ごく感謝しますよ。よろしくお願いします。

Metro-Ongen Presents: Jamming10 (11月23日)

Metro Ongen Presents Can’t wait to share the stage with our talented friends Metro-Ongen and Kate Sikora this coming Sunday night at Cafe&Bar U-ha in Koenji. Despite our contrasting sounds, we all work with the same producer, David Naughton, who likes to think of us as “musical brothers and sisters!” We couldn’t agree more with our indie father! It’s gonna be a fun night. Hope to see you there.

Have you heard of PechaKucha? It’s a simple presentation format: You take 20 images and talk about each one for 20 seconds. After almost 10 years of musical adventures in Japan, we decided to give it a shot ourselves, and were fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to present at the home of PechaKucha, Tokyo! Recorded live in front of a lively crowd at SuperDeluxe, we bring you “The Triumphs, Trials and Tribulations of a Tokyo Indie Rock Band. Enjoy!
