Digitalism Rocking It Hard At Shibuya AX February 20, 2008

As I said before, I’m really really lucky: Currently some of my favorite music acts are touring Japan! After seeing Justice and Busy P playing at Warehouse Club, now I also had the chance to see the famous German electro formation Digitalism perform live at the Shibuya AX venue. I went there with a guy from Orange County, California, whom I met on Last.FM. He’s really cool.

Their performance was simply terrific and the crowd went completely wild. But, see for yourself…

See more videos.

Unfortunately they only played for an hour or something, so at 9 pm we already found ourselves heading to Shibuya station. Since it was so early, we decided to catch the next train and go to a small, cozy Hookah bar to relax a little. We met another guy from the States there who is currently in Japan for writing a book about Japanese horror flicks or something. Weird!

Next week it’s Boys Noize @ WOMB! Can’t wait!

Et Justice pour tous!

Yay! Getting the chance to see Busy P and Justice of Paris based Ed Banger Records performing live in Tokyo I hadn’t expected. Music and crowd were awesome, the location was rather mediocre though, a small to mid-size club near Roppongi Hills without any noteworthy layout or deco. But hey, it’s about the music and the people, right.


I shot some videos, but the quality is terrible (what can you expect, it was dark and crowded of course). Watch the videos here. I heard Boys Noize is coming to Tokyo at the End of February, too. I’ll be there!
