What’s Strange About Japan: A TV Show Wants to Know!
This week on the podcast we discuss this video:
While the questions posed by the HI Lar I OuS! presenters in this Japanese TV segment “Nihon Wa Nanki Okashi?” are banal, there is little doubt that they trolled through loads of gaijin to get these gems of cultural insight. Laugh along as these CRAZY Gaijin (Are they serious – go ahead – slap yourself!) say what they find Omoshiroi! The panel tries desperately to go make sense of the madness!
Steve Allen (AKA DJ Halcyon) discusses his upcoming gig “W-Double” this Saturday, February 25th at Café Domina in Sakae. We also hear about his ongoing effort to assist victims of the Christchurch Earthquake.
Club Quattro in Sakae
Yet another talented slide-guitarist, this time from Australia, Mr. Lang’s bluesy folk music sounds of rainy nights, lost love & whiskey. Highly recommended!
Tokuzo in Imaike
(19:30 | ¥6500)
Quervo vol. 5
Club Mago in Shinsakae
Cute & short in stature though DJ RS may be, don’t for a moment mistake her as anything but a serious DJ who lays down sick sets that effortlessly twist & bounce between genres. In fact, as evidenced by her recently released mix-CD Soundgirl Killa, she may have more funk than all the other DJs performing on this night put together, and there is a LOT of them.
At Café Domina in Sakae
(22:00~| ¥2,000 with 1 free burger)

While others spend their time just writing about the local scene (ahem!), Semi-On creates it with their monthly open mic and art space. Besides all the great performances on the main stage, the upstairs gallery will play host to the work of Valentine Harmand.
At The Elephant’s Nest in Fushimi
The Pub Quiz is the beyond-logic mixing of one’s ability to remember trivia with a substance known for deterring that ability, and a tradition the world over. Nagoya’s been quiz-less for a while now, which is why I was very excited to hear that the Nest would be hosting this 9 rounder of brain-frying questions. Anyone can join and play with a team, or by their lonesome. Prizes will be awarded to the best 3 teams, as well as a booby prize for the worst. 800 per person, with any profits being donated to charity. Everybody wins… except for those who don’t.
