Meteo Night 2011

Call it the anti Rock in Japan, if you will. Meteo Night takes place on the same day as the ultra-commercial J-rock fest up in Ibaraki, but that's about all that the two events have in common. Organised by indie label Less Than TV, this one-day gig sprawls across three floors of the Shibuya O complex, and peddles a diet of scuzzed-up music that's as unlikely to graze the pop charts as Beady Eye are to write a decent song. The lineup collects some of Tokyo's foremost underground hardcore acts, including Melt-Banana, Slight Slappers and Pastafasta, while luring noise-makers from further afield, among them Osaka's Yolz in the Sky, Nagoya's Black Ganion and Nagasaki's Velocityut. Be warned that last year's event was a crowded and seriously sweaty affair – you might want to bring a towel.
