Japan Underground: One Year Anniversary
19 November, 2011 Leave a comment
We can’t believe it’s been over a year since the very first Japan Underground event. Since then we’ve gone on to meet so many fantastic people, with your help raised £10,000 for Japanese charities, toured England, recieved support from the likes of Suga Shikao and Rie fu, opened for Shonen Knife and Doping Panda, worked with everyone from J-pop stars (Yuki Koyanagi, Ayako Nakanomori, Mari Natsuki) to upcoming indie stars (HITT, HONDALADY, Tokyo Pinsalocks, iMMa) and just had an all round amazing time. Not to mention loads of press coverage, including being reccomended by Time Out London as an alternative night out, got a page in The Independent and featured on Kerrang! and Absolute Radio. We have some massive plans for the year ahead, and our revamped website – now including UK exclusive news and features – is just a small part of them. Thank you to you all, and keep spreading the word.
