Japanese culture is ubiquitous in major cities across Canada with its popularity apparent in areas such as food/cuisine, fashion, video games and technology. But Japanese music gets little to no recognition at all, which is unfortunate since Tokyo secretly harbors what is arguably the most exciting music scene in the world. Compared to their North American counterparts Japanese musicians tend to be more adventurous when it comes to song-writing and especially in live performances. Females also play a much more prominent role on-stage, in the audience and as sound technicians. Tokyo's independent and underground music scene has an ebullient energy and freshness that is highly addictive and without peer.
Tickets are only $8 in advance, and are available at Red Cat, Zulu, Highlife, Neptoon Records and the Waldorf Hotel, or online at http://tktwb.tw/IafsmS
