The best DJ bars in Shibuya
A night on the town in Tokyo is more about being able to choose the right place from a myriad of options rather than having a lack of options. If you're just looking for a drink, good music and perhaps a little dance, so-called DJ bars are your best bet. Smaller than full-on clubs, they're comfy spots for whiling away the evening in style. Shibuya has a particularly impressive concentration of these little gems, so we've rounded up our faves – all of which are open at least six days a week. Who says partying is only for the weekends?
The best upcoming gigs in Tokyo
Somebody told me that The Killers are coming back to Japan for the first time in five years! 13 years after their debut album, Hot Fuss which includes anthems like “Mr.Brightside” and “All these things that I’ve done,” their new album Wonderful Wonderful ranked No.1 on the Billboard 200 after its release. Don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity to witness the best alternative rock band of the 21st century right here in Tokyo.
Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Portland based band Unknown Mortal Orchestra will turn Shibuya’s WWW X club upside down in the latter half of September. Their latest album ‘Sex & Food’ (2018) − covering two essentials in life − won’t disappoint fans with its usual psychedelic rock sounds. The band around singer, guitarist and songwriter Ruban Nielson released their first album in 2011, which celebrated great success immediately.
