Minnesota Voodoo Men 
The style gurus at Young Soul Rebels in Kichijoji always throw great parties, and there is another one coming up this Saturday! On stage will be the always amazing 60s-based overdrive of the The Minnesota Voodoo Men, plus Soulcrap, who are guaranteed to get everybody dancing with their swinging soul-funk. Ichibee Dining has great food and best of all, entrance is free!

Also on Saturday, surf's up at Shinjuku 9 Spices where The Hum Hums celebrate a new record release together with likeminded sunny bands from the Waterslide label, including Pelotan and Osaka surf legends Wimpy's.

Supersnazz at Green Apple
There's a fantastic line-up of bands at Hatagaya Heavy Sick this Sunday, including power pop from Tweezers (with singer Fifi of Poor Cow fame), Tokyo legends Supersnazz (sounding great with two new guitarists), flat-out rock-n-roll from Thunderroads, and more! Plus, two DJs all the way from Australia: Bruce Milne of Born Bad Records, and Frank Cotterell of the legendary Waterfront Records!

Start: 18.00
Charge: Advance ¥2000 / door ¥2500, plus one drink 


Of course I also have to make a plug for my own event! Got To Have Pop presents another DJ session with special guests from the Simply Thrilling label: Label owner Miles himself, plus Koji of Baby Blue and Tacka-Sicks of Nervous Hearts. Be one of the first five to arrive (it won't be hard, believe us) and you will get a Simply Thrilling goody bag!
