Superchunk at O-West, Tokyo

Last night was the first show of our Japan tour and the crowd was insane and great. We had typical first night of tour foul-ups that hopefully no one noticed but us, and the show ended up a good one, sold out and sweaty. Excellent crowd participation on handclaps for the entire duration of Tiny Bombs, a first. Another first, covering Telekinesis's perhaps slightly too appropriate song "Tokyo"...

Throwing Things
Learned to Surf
I Guess I Remembered It Wrong
Art Class (Song for Yayoi Kusama)
For Tension
Punch Me Harder
Hello Hawk
Crossed Wires
Tiny Bombs
First Part

Tokyo (Telekinesis)
Cast Iron
Hyper Enough

followed by late-night sushi for some of us...see Jim above showing our friend Hideki the proper way to use chopsticks.
tonight's show at the smaller O-Nest club upstairs will incorporate an acoustic portion of the set at the beginning...we'll see how that goes!

currently listening to Chuck Kaiton call the 'Canes-Devils game, 9.30 in the morning Tokyo time, i love technology. wish i could say the same about the way the defense is playing.

I like the fact that
a) Superchunk is playing live and
b) Japan gets to see Superchunk playing live.

I hope that this leads to
c) an awesome record in 2010 and
d) an awesome tour and/or lots of shows in Carrboro/Triangle.
