played a solo show tonight at wasted time in shibuya. lots of friendly people were there and came up to talk after the show. thanks. and much gratitude to the venue and other artists too.
first to play was a male singer-songwriter on guitar called Halu. old-school folk and pop sometimes with english lyrics, and guitar instrumentals. his site is here.
next was and RAVEL ("and" being part of the name), a male guitar-piano duo singing lots of harmonies. enthusiastic pop of the sort the kids love these days. the lead vocalist's blog is here.
then me. the set list:
new song "kusekisha" being a radiohead ripoff, right after the show somebody came up and said "that was a radiohead ripoff, wasn't it?" the truth will out.
well. this show was my only one in july. if business remains this slow, i'll have to lay off some of my staff. on 8/8 i've got another solo show at wasted time, and then on 8/9 i'm playing a show with nozomi iwashima (pf). i'm looking forward to it and believe you should also.
finally, a few songs for your consideration.
