N'toko / Jebiotto! / Kaki - Kyushu tour July 20th-22nd 2012

Call And Response are on tour in Kyushu this weekend, with three dates featuring N'toko including one with Kaki and two with Jebiotto!, as well as a couple with Ian DJing. The Fukuoka date also features isLAICHELS, the new band of Shuichi Inoue of Folk Enough, RIM, a tribute band to Call And Response legends Mir, old friends Fake Girl Nott, electronic noiseniks Deltas, and discopop duo Amorphous. A whole lot of new faces will join us in Kitakyushu, including Hynouma, who seem fascinating in a messed-up Amon Duul II art-psych sort of way, while Cultos from Kumamoto, a new band featuring a couple of old pals I'm excited to see, will join us for the final date.

Any Kyushu people around at this time, come and check out our shit, man.

Telephone Club (Friday, July 13th)

July is birthday month at Call And Response, with Ian, N'toko and Zana Caroline all celebrating their special days at round the same time. This party also counts as a sort of tour opener with N'toko and Jebiotto! heading off to Kyushu the following weekend for some shochu and mentaiko-fuelled adventures.

The A and B studios will feature live acts while the G studio will be staffed by CAR's good friends from Youth is Wasted. It's OK to bring in your own drinks, or you can buy them from the studio staff pretty cheaply anyway, so come along and enjoy!
