Music events: - On Sunday August 10 I went to the World Happiness festival, organized by members of YMO. Unfortunately, it happened that there was a typhoon passing above Japan on that day, which gave for a lot of rain and wind. The festival went on, leaving many performers (and the crowd) very wet, but it was a lot of fun anyway. The event featured Puffy, Takahashi Yukihiro with In Phase (feat. James Iha, Horie Hirohisa, etc.), Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, Pokaskajan, Quruli, cero, Hosono Haruomi, No Lie-Sense, Denki Groove, Kimyo Reitaro Travel Swing Orchestra, and Takahashi Yukihiro & Metafive (feat. Oyamada Keigo, Towa Tei, Sunahara Yoshinori, etc.), among others.

- And on Monday evening, I went to a free DJ event by Cibo Matto at Brooklyn Parlor in Shinjuku. We got much better seats than last time! Had a great time listening to all good music (almost none that I know) while chatting with friends with many similar tastes. :)
