Weekly revue: 2017 week #39 (September 23 to 29)
Food: - Fish & chicken curries at Indo Fujiko, Kōenji
- Soft serve ice cream at Fukushimaya, Akihabara
Music events: - I went to see SOLEIL's in-store mini-live at HMV record shop Shinjuku Alta, following the release of first single "Pinky Fluffy"! Singer Soleil, bassist & producer Sally Kubota (Sally Soul Stew, Les 5-4-3-2-1, ex-Phantom Gift) and guitarist Nakamori Yasuhiro (Hicksville, Sally Soul Stew) performed on stage. The first played "Pinky Fluffy" (music by Takanami K-taro) and then "Breakout" (cover of Swing Out Sister), which was followed by an encore of "Pinky Fluffy" one more time. I bought the single there and got autographs by all three members. Yay!! :)
A release party will be held on October 15 at Shinjuku Red Cloth from 17:00. I can't wait!
- I went to "Delica Lab" at Batica in Ebisu, a regular event organized by Nakatsuka Takeshi (Qypthone). This time the other bands playing were Somethiing New (piano + trumpet duo), it's Me. (the recent unit of Ookawara Izumi and Hossy) and Small Circle of Friends! All were great! As always the event's schedule is quite busy, with 20-minute live sets on the 2nd floor in-between which there are 20-minute DJ sets on the 1st floor. Lots of good music!
On the way out I got Studio75 (aka SCOF)'s "Coffee Shop Card" CD, which comes packed in a coffee pouch. It contains 30 different beats made with 30 of their favorite coffee shops (and bars, etc.) in mind. The two, Azuma and Satsuki, were very nice to autograph it for me!
Nakatsuka Takeshi set list: niji o mita kai / Rhythm / Prism / toki no kiseki
Music release news: Pizzicato Five, kataomoi
