The Obvious Circus Events Calendar (Until 3/9)


Pardon my brevity, but it’s actually pleasant outside. And I cannot bear to stare at this screen a minute longer. I’m outta here!

On to the calendar!

Friday, March 4


Club Zion in Kamimaezu from 18:00

War, corruption, people just big dicks in general: sometimes you need to skank your troubles away! Let the blaring brass section of Fresno’s Iwanaga set your weekend off. Nagoya’s own MACVES and 247x will also be there kicking all the shit out the door. ADV ¥2000 / DOOR¥2500

Golden Apple 2016

Club Mago and Lounge Vio in Shinsakae from 20:00
Live music or DJ, the long-standing battle of what makes for a better party. However, this event won’t make you choose. Live performances in Vio with DJs in Mago; the best of both worlds.  DOOR ¥4500

Disco Demands

Café Domina in Sakae from 22:00

A little bit of funk, a little bit a soul and a group of talented DJs who masterfully mix it together. DOOR ¥1500

Saturday 5

We Got Rhythm vol. 6

ROXX in Sakae from 17:00

This fun party offers the good parts of the 1950s like the nostalgic fashion, music and dance styles and leaves out the bad: like the constant threat of nuclear annihilation. Live music from the Yano Tadashi Band from Tokyo, The Fuzziyama Surfers, NOISE and Crazy Rhythm with dance performances, a hair cut show and shops selling retro fashion. DOOR ¥2500 (+1D)


Café Domina in Sakae from 22:00

From his weekly DEEP & TECH broadcasts for Block FM to his floor-filling sets in clubs from Tokyo to San Fran, DJ Jay Zimmermann is a master at reading a crowd and getting them into his groove. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. DOOR ¥2500

Super Karaoke

GC Live in Shinsakae from 19:00

The GC karaoke band FINALLY has a name! The Super Karaoke Bros are back for the first time with their popular event where anyone can join them on stage to sing-along to any tune from their extensive catalogue of crowd favorites. Check out the event link above to request a song. DOOR ¥2000 (2D)

Daihachi Ryodan

Tokuzo in Imaike from 19:00

Over their 36 year illustrious career, Daihachi Ryodan has been rocking the east end with their Latin-jazz-rock-reggae-psychedelic-enka-punk style. They only do a few shows a year, so you better catch this one. DOOR ¥2500

Sunday 6

Gregorio Vol.6
Club Buddha in Shinsakae from 16:00

If you’re sick of the Sakae club scene and feel the music that they constantly play says nothing to you about your life (cheers to those of you singing along at home), don’t overlook the sound bars and small clubs of Shinsakae. Places like Buddha foster a dedicated following by offering sounds you won’t hear in most bigrooms, like this UK and US rock party. DOOR ¥1500 (1D)

Didgeridoo Workshop

The Jump in Nakamura Kuyakusho from 11:30

Local multi-instrumentalist Bob Vidler’s regular “Circular Breathing For Beginners” workshop returns. Email to reserve your spot. FEE ¥1500

Monday 7

Monday Night Jam

Gotham City Live in Shinsakae from 18:00

This and every Monday, GC Live offers all the chance to take the stage and join a supergroup of local talent for the best jam session in town. DOOR ¥1000

Wednesday 9


Red Rock in Sakae from 20:00

There was once a watering hole in Imaike infamous throughout our community. If you heard a drunk story that couldn’t possibly be true (but “swear to god, I was there!”) safe bet it happened at MISFITS. Sadly, it’s been gone for a while now, but the memory lives on in those of us who have yet to find an adequate methadone to replace that particular addiction. A group of Misfits survivors will be gathering at the Rock on this night to swap tales and strive to attain that legendary level of inebriation that you just can’t get without Dave behind the bar. 3-hour nomihoudai for ¥3000.
