Minna No Senkan

While waiting the new album, we have chance to see Hikashu among other new acts in February.

It's an event called "Minna No Senkan," [Everybody's Battleship] held on February 11-12 in Shinjuku, Tokyo. It's a sort of showcase gig, the 24 bands will appear. What interesting is that most of the bands booked are emerging, post-two-thousands musicians, and Hikashu is the only act from 1970s (or even 1980s). We think this means something.

And the venue is also interesting - a cabaret called "New Japan" in Shinjuku. Cabaret used to be very popular and influential place for socializing in post-WWII Japan, but the culture dwindled after 1980s. Shinjuku New Japan was one of the most famous, and one of the few surviving spot today. Although now it is no longer a "cabaret," its facility is still intact and the atmosphere of the golden period is well-preserved. Experience the good old days of Showa retro at Shinjuku New Japan.
