Weekly revue: 2014 week #33 (August 9 to 15)
Food: - Had some of the best meat ever! Grilled dry aged Tajima beef, at Uchi - Nakasei, Myōgadani
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.
Some set lists:
Puffy: Basket Case (Green Day cover) / ai no shirushi / watashitachi no ikiru michi / nagisa ni matsuwaru Et Cetera / Asia no junshin (and more)

- 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. :)
Some tracks that were played: YMO "Cosmic Surfin" (some remix?) / Missy Elliott "Work It" / Beenie Man "Dancehall Queen" / Inner City "Good Life" / Digital Underground "The Humpty Dance" / Tem Blessed "Whale Song" / Mystikal "Shake Ya Ass"
- Also watched a live DJ set by Noel & Gallagher (= DJ Noel & Konishi Yasuharu!) on Dommune. You too can watch it here. Dommune streams live through YouTube, so I used Chromecast to watch it in HD on my TV, that was great!

Playlist: Jintana & Emeralds, Emerson Kitamura, Buffalo Daughter, hitomitoi, etc.
