TODAY!: Gagakirise in-store 4pm

Tonight - Free in-store with Gagakirise!! The show is going on at the loft at 4pm. From the underground of the capitol city of Japan: Tokyo, two long-black-hair (and skinny) dudes are trying to break something with full-contact karate guitar riffs and unstoppable drums.

The two met in 2008 and realized they both hate moths. The band was named Gagakirise, meaning "We hate moths." As soon as the volcanic sounds sprang from a tiny but cozy space, they started gaining attention of indie music fans in Tokyo. Then it spread out all over Japan and Gagakirise received an invitation for SXSW in 2009. In Japan, Gagakirise has played with many great bands/musicians like Juiceboxxx, Vivian Girls and My Disco. Also, they have released splits with Juiceboxxx and Fiasco.

They hit the US twice, including SXSW 2009 and 2010, and now they are going to meet Californians. This may get many people surprised and tell them, only the tip of an iceberg though, what current Japanese music is like. 
Gagakirise will tell you how fun music is.
Definitely make it out to OV today if you're in the mood for some Japanese noise rock! See you then.
