Dancing After 1AM gets some love from Tsutaya

Yukari from Kobayashi Dorori found this display in her local branch of the video and CD store Tsutaya in Kumamoto, so thanks to them for pushing it like that. It looks like the other albums on the display are Drugorbaseball by MacManaman, who also feature on DA1AM, and 51 Records' compilation/split album Underrated, featuring Lillies & Remains, Sekaitekina Band and Purple. All in all rather nice company to be in.

Fashion Crisis (November 2012)

Helping Fashion Crisis ease its way into the coming winter, our psychedelic friends Soh from new wave noise merchants Hysteric Picnic and Xiroh from kraut-blues groove panthers Buddy Girl and Mechanic will be joining the regular team to weave their sensual spectral sonic soundscapes. Join us.

Date: November 2nd (Fri)
Place: Koenji One
Time: 8:00pm-last train
