ナスと豚肉のパテ ドライキーマカレー Brooklyn Parlor Sunday Bake Shop

Music events: I saw Cibo Matto! Twice!! The first time was a free DJ event at Brooklyn Parlor, where Yuka and Miho DJ'd while guests enjoyed a meal or drinks. There was a merch table where they sold the new album and T-shirts. I got an autograph and a photo with them, and a cool new T-shirt! :)

The 2nd time I saw them was for a free in-store event at Tower Records Shinjuku on a rainy evening. The place was quite packed nevertheless! They played "Sugar Water", "Check In" and "10th Floor Ghost Girl"! The new album is really amazing, I love it! Now I can't wait to see a full show of theirs, and May 20 should be the day, hopefully! They'll play at Liquidroom in Ebisu. I also heard that they'll play at Blue Note in August.

Art event: I dropped by Volcom in Harajuku for "DYZ featured ARTIST TEE release EXHIBITION". There was an event with live painting by ESOW, HITOTZUKI, DISKAH, MADSAKI and Naomi Kazama. The shop had a skateboard ramp setup inside, and the artists progressively layered their work on the wall behind. T-shirts by each of the artists are also being sold at the shop.

What style of music did Yuka and Miho play while they DJ'ed? I'm curious and know it would be good stuff.

Sorry I had missed this comment.

They played mostly stuff I didn't know at all, of all genres, and it was all very good! So there's not much more I can say. :) Now I wish I would have Shazam'd all of those songs.
