Tonight at the Greenroom is a gig not to be missed. Direct from Tokyo, Japanese rockabilly/indie/classic band Ikochi are playing.They are fantastic!

Described as Japan’s own “Hedwig and The Angry Inch” Japanese three-piece IKOCHI are set rock Canberra as part their first ever Australian tour.

IKOCHI’s sound spans Japanese traditional through to Showa era and Rockabilly/Punk is an experience that takes you from swoon to mosh in 30 seconds and then back again. Stunning ‘new-half’ (that’s transgender to us Aussies!) lead singer/guitarist Chikako steals the show but is admirably backed up by bass player Kota Minato and drummer Daisuke Arita.

IKOCHI are playing the University of Canberra’s Green Room on Friday November 16th with local supports Are The Brave All Dead and The Gashes. Tickets $10. Doors 8pm – 2-4-1 Jagerbombs till 9pm..

I’m intrigued by the ads in the Canberra Times for the Canberra Korean Festival – especially the mention of the free lunchbox (with a donation).

Hopefully it won’t be so hot I’ll expire!

Anyway, if you missed the ads:

Glebe Park
Opening ceremony at noon

Korean traditional dance/folk music, musical instruments, Taekwondo demos.

TRACKSIDE 2007 – TRACKSIDE is a Licensed-All-Ages gig. Bring ID if you are over 18 and want to drink.

THOROUGHBRED PARK, Canberra Racecourse
