Switched On! Christmas Party (December 26th)

Tokyo's finest new wave/electro/technopop party Switched On! has its annual Christmas party again tonight back at its original venue, the old Bar Drop. Although the venue officially closed last year, the place is still there and the owners invited us back to do a show, so it should be a homecoming spectacular for all concerned. For all, that is, except our special guests Tika Tika from Nagoya, and N'toko from Slovenia, both of whom will be adding some of their own spice and glamour to procedings.

C.A.R. stuff on teh Internets Part 3

Nippon Rock has an interview with me on their web site now, augmented by a gloriously fuzzy photo that I took of myself in a mirror at Akihabara Club Goodman using my iPhone. Go there and marvel at what I look like when I'm dangerously drunk and mirror-reversed (also check out the 90s retro Aston Villa away shirt I'm hiding under my jacket in anticipation of the Villans' historic win over Manchester United later that same evening!)

Fashion Crisis (December 2009)

The last Fashion Crisis of 2009 is coming up next Monday, so be sure to cancel all appointments and get on down to Koenji for the undoubted extravaganza that the event will surely be. Along with the familiar faces of Candles will be special live guest Kiyokazu Onozaki from indie/folk/neo-acoustic tunesmiths the Andersens. Also, making regular DJs Ian and James look like the hopeless amateurs they are, will be Slovenian electro/hip hop/experimental superstar N'toko.

Time: 7:30 P.M.
Place: Koenji Bar One
Cost: FREE
Live: Candles / Kiyokazu Onozaki (from the Andersens)
