Mata ne! Superchunk Heads East
Superchunk heads to Japan on Monday for a tour of that fine island nation -- Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Nagoya -- our first since 2001, an adventure covered a bit in our Quest for Sleep movie...
Looking forward to the shows, the people, the food...
Meanwhile End-of-Year and End-of-Decade lists abound...i'm not quite there yet but here's a list of some of my favorite Japanese artists...will definitely be rocking some Aki Tsuyuko on the plane trip over there...this list is off the top of my head so i'm sure i'm forgetting some things i love:
Boredoms (plus related such as UFO or Die, OOIOO)
also list-related, this person has kindly included Bright Ideas in the top 100 albums of the last decade! nice.
