Tokyo Boredom in E.K.!!!!!

The original Tokyo Boredom gigs were free all-nighters where the bands paid for the overheads so their fans didn't have to. Though the organisers have had to ditch such noble ambitions along the way, they haven't flagged in their mission to showcase the gnarlier corners of the indie-rock underground. The latest Tokyo Boredom sees the event – which has previously been held at Tokyo University, among other places – transplanted to an area that could probably be considered its spiritual home: Koenji. Key live spots 20000V and UFO Club will be hosting gigs during the day – along with Chinese eatery Manshuo and a private home. Music-wise, propulsive post-punk regulars like The Mornings, Bossston Cruizing Mania, Groundcover and Tacobonds will all be in attendance, while the visiting guests include Taiwan's Hang In The Air, who sound more than a little like much-missed Japanese dub-dream rockers Fishmans.
