Hikashu has been holding a special concert in every December since 2008. And this year, the things really get bigger - two days (22 and 23 of December), with lots of guest artists, including the Plastics, with the original line-up.
The first date has lots of guests, and its roster is quite impressive. Charan Po Rantan, Marianne Shinonome (from Kinoco Hotel), veretan avant-garde reedman Sakata Akira, Kera (from a renowned new-wave band, Uchoten), the Godzilla Legend founder Inoue Makoto (who is also the original member of Hikashu), violinist Ohta Keisuke (who has just released a duo album with Alexei Aigui), and others.
And the second date, billed as "Techno Pop Christmas," features the original line-ups of the two bands - Hikashu , and the Plastics. The original Hikashu (with Inoue Makoto and Yamashita Yasushi, both on synthesizers, and Tobe Satoshi on alto saxophone) is going to play a short set as an opening act, sans drummer, using rhythm machine instead, like old days. And the Plastics. They have reunioned several times in the past, but the reunion of the original line-up, including Chika on vocals and Shima Takemi on rhythm box, have never happened before, and this is for the first time.
So now you know these evenings are going to be monumental, so do not miss it.
