Next Music from Tokyo is a concert series featuring indie bands from Japan. It’s run by Steven Tanaka with shows in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. I only discovered it recently when I attended volume 8 last minute (which was in May earlier this year). I’m very excited that we don’t have to wait a whole year for vol 9, which kicks off its tour in Montreal on October 5, 2016 at Le Divan Orange. The lineup has been finalized and the bands are Maison Book Girl, This is Japan, Jizue, Toranoko Rammy, and Hitsuji Bungaku. Here’s the facebook event page.
Sep 17 update: trailer!
Based on videos online, the bands sound great and this should be another amazing show. Advance tickets available August 17. Here are some music videos of the acts.
