Having already announced here, Hikashu will perform in North America next month. And just recently it came to our attention that Toronto and New York City gigs are added. So the dates are as follows:
Hikashu Canada Tour 2013
May 14, 2013 - The Garrison, Toronto www.garrisontoronto.com
May 15, 2013 - National Arts Centre, AB Series, Ottawa* abseries.squarespace.com
May 17, 2013 - Festival des Musiques du Création, Jonquière www.sagamie.org
May 18, 2013 - Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville, Victoriaville fimav.qc.ca
May 23, 2013 - Muchmore's, Brooklyn, New York City http://www.facebook.com/pages/Muchmores/125356810924312
May 24, 2013 - Pianos, Manhattan, New York City www.pianosnyc.com
* Preceding the band's gig in Ottawa, there is a Theremin demonstration by Makigami in the afternoon. The admission is free. The detail is here.
In the midst of the tour, the band will hold a recording session at EastSide Sound in New York City for next album.
This is the first time for them to play in Canada. And the first time in New York City since 2011.
Remember, Hikashu is a live band in the first place. CDs are great but it's live performances where they really shine. Be ready to be shocked - they're not like anything what you've ever seen before.
And this is a rare treat. These days it's becoming harder and harder for indie act from overseas playing in America, especially New York City. That means it's unlikely that they play again in US near future. So, for audiences in NYC - and America - last but not least you Canadians too - Do not miss it.
