Dog Eaters

LIve at UFO, Koenji, Tokyo

Posted on 01.19.14 under Blythe, Dustin Wong, Momus, Takako Minekawa

Takako Minekawa played her first solo live in 13 years at UFO.

Buddy & the Mechanics were also on the bill.

While they played, we hung out in the green room with Momus who came up from Osaka to do this show.

Hippopota Momus was the first CD Isaac got (from his brother, Dustin), so it was kind of thrilling for him to meet him.

Dustin and Junko take a seat…

A British(?) author, Justin Isis, was also in green room trying to rustle up some promotion shots for a novel he wrote with Quentin S. Crisp, and Brendan Connell, “The Cutest Girl in Class.” Set in New Jersey, the cover featured a model holding Blythe. An unauthorized usage, by the way. He spent the rest of the evening in a state of nerves probably hoping that he wouldn’t have to pay royalties…

A fun night, with the added bonus of being close to home.
