Oreskaband/The50Kaitenz/Pistol Valve/GO!GO!7188, SXSW XXI, March 16, 2007

This is a recaplet till the real review gets posted.

Overall theme of the night: Japanese women with horns.

Oreskaband: I’m not into ska, but I liked the band’s performance enough to get a t-shirt.

The50Kaitenz: I fucking hate garage rock.

Pistol Valve: I had a lousy view of the stage, so it wasn’t until toward the end of the set, when a few people went for beers, that I got a full appreciation for the spectacle of 10+ Japanese women playing horns.

GO!GO!7188: Yuu and Akko know how to strike the rock star pose, and even though I’ve been neglectful of following the band for the past six years, last night made me see the light.

I skipped out on HY because judging from the samples I heard, I knew they were going to be Core of Soul all over again. I’ve also seen the Emeralds before. See my comment about The50Kaitenz.

    Awesome… great of you to pop in and just do a quick one liner throughout the event. So you’re diggin some of the Go!Go!… I think seeing certain bands live has a better impression than listening to a CD for sure.

    I went to see the SxSW Japan Nite Tour in NY, and though I sadly missed Go!Go due to transportation issues, I did see Pistol Valve. Oh my god. What a waste of hats. and brass instruments.
    Also, they NEVER took those hats off. I saw some of them arriving a few hours before the show, and they were still wearing their hats.
