Jan. 31st: Harajuku AstroHall: The Shins
My wife and I met Big Mike (who isn't even all that big anymore) and his roomie Mike D at the AstroHall in Harajuku for a night of musical bliss a la the Shins. Also met a girl, her name is Jill, that I went to the University of Alberta with there. It was serendipitous to say the least. Found out she actually taught my cousins Amy, Tia, Jenna and Chelsea phys. ed. at the school in Smith, Alberta. My world immediately got that much smaller.

The opening act was a 4 piece from right here in Japan called Sparta Locals. I liked 2 of their songs, but the rest of their set was a little too much on the trying-to-sound-like-the-new-new-wave-of-British-bands side of things for this cat.

The Shins came out a half hour later or so and non-stop rocked the pants off of each and everyone in the room. The set consisted of almost all of the music from their latest album Chutes Too Narrow, a number of songs off of Oh, Inverted World, an old one off an EP and maybe some new ones that I haven't heard (?) or some from the Orange County soundtrack or whatever. Doesn't really matter, they were all good. The keyboard player was hamming it up with the audience asking if there really was anything to do in Tokyo etc. Good for a larf and it kept the mood all light as a feather with helium being pumped under it. One encore was supplied avec le masques d'horrible! Masks liven up any environment and this was no exception as a pig, frog, tiger and monkey made up the new Shins for 2 more little ditties before the lights came up and we made our way out into a bitterly cold street and a overly crowded train home. Good times.
