Busy July at CAR Records

The Kyushu x Nagoya Electric Pop Festival was a blast. Huge crowds on both days and some stunning performances. I'm not going to pick out best or favourite bands because it's really unfair on everyone else who was awesome as well, but I will say a special well done to Kobayashi Dorori, Hakuchi, Chainsaw TV and Odd Eyes, who made a great impression on a lot of first-time audience.
