Moools

A long-running fixture on the Tokyo live scene, Moools have done a better job than many of their Japanese indie brethren at developing an overseas following too. They've benefited from an association with Washington's K Records scene, not to mention playing support slots for the likes of Modest Mouse – with whom they have a fair amount in common – and Deerhoof on their Japan tours. The 30th edition in the band's Moools Matsuri series is an indulgent, two-day affair featuring no less than 20 guest bands. Saturday's lineup runs from the intricate song structures of Yomoya and Nhhmbase to the full-throttle garage rock assault of Limited Express (Has Gone?) and Kaisoku Tokyo, while on Sunday they've got everyone from veteran acts Beyonds and Bloodthirsty Butchers to latterday Number Girl descendants Suiseinoboaz and baroque indie pop ensemble 4 Bonjour's Parties. Moools themselves will be playing totally different sets each night.
