Next Music from Tokyo is a one-of-a-kind tour taking the audience on a virtual trip to a gig in Tokyo’s fascinating underground music scene. Vol 2 of the NMFT tour was named Montreal’s best concert of 2010 by multiple writers in the year end issue of the Montreal Mirror.

For more information:

NATSUMEN Legendary eight-member super-group playing experimental hardcore jazz with face-melting power and precision.

チーナ (chee-na) Freakishly talented pop band blending elements of classical, jazz and folk with soulfully sublime female vocals.

赤い公園 (Akai Kou-en; translation: “red park”) Four girls aged 18-20 citing the Boredoms as one of their favourite bands. This explains why their deliciously melodic pop can veer off into darkly ferocious noise. Cute, gorgeous, creepy and intense… all at the same time with mind-blowing musicianship that belies their age. Their music, video footage and CDs cannot be found on the internet. The only way to experience them is to see them live.

百蚊 (hyakka) Fronted by one of the wildest most charismatic female guitarists around. Hyacca’s music is a sonic maelstrom of lightning speed-punk with shoegaze soundscapes, krautrock rhythms and mathy, angular riffs. So powerful and catchy even the most introverted wallflowers will turn into unabashed dancing machines.

Joining these bands are local favourites SSRI’s who will show the folks from Japan that Vancouver is no slouch when it comes to innovative, energetic music of the awesome variety.
