Live From Tokyo—West Coast Premiere Tonight

November 12, 2010

I don’t like posting about events I have no way of attending, but I’ll make an exception for Live From Tokyo.  In 2008 filmmaker Lewis Rapkin and his crew traveled the backstreets of Tokyo to highlight some of the most innovative musicians of the scene.  The film includes interviews and performances from artists such as Shugo Tokumaru, Uhnellys, and Tenniscoats.

Live From Tokyo will be shown at the Viz Cinema theatre in San Francisco at 7:15PM.  Following the film, there will be a Q & A with the filmmakers and LIVE webcasts from Kirihito, Sajjanu, Yudaya Jazz, and Onnacodomo in Tokyo.  Ticket and location info can be found here.  If you can’t make it you can watch tons of raw concert footage on the documentary’s YouTube page.  I’ll be slowly going through them and post my favorites the next time substantial news (DVD release?) of the film is announced.
