Just Married? On Facebook?

This week we discuss the unnerving aspects of a relationship status updates on facebook, especially when nothing has actually changed except that your significant other has now joined facebook. What does this mean? Not a lot – but we talk about it anyway.

Ultraman  and AKB48

Adam previews the new Ultraman / AKB48 movie “Ultraman Saga) an otaku’s wet dream.  Eiji Tsuburaya’s ultimate fighting machine, Ultraman, is back again for another adventure, which should help keep unruly kids quiet for 90minutes or so. But why add AKB48? We talk Adam off the ledge. (Note obligatory Jar Jar Binks reference).

What’s Nagging

Danny rounds up this week’s sonic selections. It is the first week of the month so… well.. don’t expect too much.

Thursday 1st

The Graves Brothers Deluxe @ K.D. Japon (18:30 | ¥1600)

Psychedelic jam band from San Francisco on their Japan wide tour

Friday 2nd

Mars @ Café Domina (22:00 | ¥1500)
For fans of old school house music like they used to make in Detroit and Baltimore

Club Snoozer @ Club JB’s (22:00 | ¥3000)

Unusual night for JB’S with several DJs playing rock and indie dance music all night long with special guest DJ Halfby

Saturday 3rd

Da Doo Ron Ron @ Club Upset (23:30 | ¥3150)

It’s very rare to find an event in Nagoya that that I have no complaints about. However, with live performances from The Bunnies and NAGMAG faves Adas Mexico, I feel oddly content, which doesn’t sit well with me. I need something to mock…

G.A.N.G. KKK @ Café Domina (22:00 | ¥2500)

Sometimes with Japan, you just have to shake your head. This event takes its poorly-planned name from the initials of their three headlining DJs, Kaos, Kent and Keita. And while DJ Kaos does spin some funky disco house music, I am finally putting my foot down to horribly named events.

Haute Couture @ X-Hall (21:00 | ¥2500)

A new kind of fashionable party featuring the very talented DJs Kanbe and Hisanori H in the main room, along with Iku, Nick Edges, Take, Andy S and more. And as part of the chill lounge area, there will be sessions by Thomas Lang, Alexander and Sonoir, dij, Halycon, Cee2 and DJ m@. As a Girls Day Special, there’s a ladies only entry from 21:00~23:00.

COLOR Vol.22 @ CLUB LOVER:z (21:00 | ¥2500)
Hip Hop and dance party featuring more DJs than I wish to list here, and an entire harem’s worth of sexy dancers. Plus body art and a couple of MCs for good measure. However, this one get’s a special mention because friend to NAGMAG DJ scrying of the Obvious Circus will be there as a special guest spinning his assorted remixes and mashups.

BIRTH @ Sound Bar P.O.d (23:00 | ¥2200)

The BIRTH DJs bring “the power of rock” to this hidden but excellent sound bar just down from the Nagoya TV Tower.  According to their website, you can expect music from the likes of Sum 41, Green Day, 311, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance and more.
