Music event: I went to event "City Pop Connection" held at Kabuki Lounge, in Kabukichō, Shinjuku. Mainly a DJ event feat. DJs Ikegami Takashi, Gō, and Kanazawa Yoshikazu (selector/supervisor of "Light Mellow" compilation series), there was also a mini-live of singer Wakita Monari (ex-Especia)! The small venue was very crowded, so much that it was sometimes a bit difficult to walk around, but it was definitely a fun event with many friendly people. Monari did a set of her own songs, including the great unreleased "est est est", plus a cover of Count Joke, and later she sang a Japanese cover of Kylie Minogue's "I should be so lucky" (as sung by Wada Kanako in 1988). That was great! The show also served as a demo of the "Lyric Speaker", a cool device that shows lyrics as songs are played.
Wakita Monari set list: LED (original by Count Joke aka jōdan hakushaku) / est est est / akai Skirt / In the City / anone / Boy Friend
& later: Lucky Love (Japanese cover of Kylie Minogue's "I should be so lucky")
