First stop yesterday, the Tokyo Takarazuka Theatre to pick up shopping for people……… never before have I seen a place filled with that many middle aged women all wearing the same jacket, lol. Managed to somehow make it out alive, which was a bonus. Then off to Akiba to recover…
Walking around and we accidentally found a mini-event going on in that Belle Salle building. New eroge being sold, and a couple of mini-live performances. And just by chance guess who turned out to be there…
…the other half of UNDER17, now playing in a group called Ultra-Prism.
After that we were off to Chiba to watch a street performance from a kinda crazy band… Puffy Shoes. Their website said they’d be performing on the street outside the station first, before going to some kind of bar later. When we arrived after a little walk around it wasn’t too hard to find them……. follow the loud drums/guitar, lol.
After they’d finished up the street live everyone was given a copy of their CD and name tags and asked to follow them to a recording studio type place. There was then a mini-live performance in the studio… gotta say fitting 15 or so people into one of those tiny rooms was a challenge, lol, but funny nontheless. It all felt very Beatles-like.
Then off to the bar! The sort of place that has lots of local bands playing there. Very packed, but everyone managed to squeeze in for their final performance of the day (I should point out that the drummer had been swigging from a bottle of whiskey all afternoon, lol).
Grabbed a few more beers, and fish and chips + onion rings before everyone left and we went home. (at which point we managed to get on the wrong train 3 times… each time going in the opposite direction to tokyo, before eventually finding the correct one, lol, drunk much?)
