The Obvious Circus Events Calendar (Until 9/30)


It’s the end of the month, and I’m busier than a one-legged man in an ass-kicking competition.  So, please forgive my brevity.

On to the calendar!

Friday 28th

LAKE Japan Tour 2012

K.D. Japon in Tsurumai from 18:30

This American indie pop band is most famous for the song Christmas Island, which my more stoned readers will know from Adventure Time.  DOOR ¥3700


Club JB’s in Sakae from 22:00

The UK club phenom that is called “grime”, because no one took the name “British Hip Hop” seriously, is featured heavily at this monthly.   Special guesting this night are DJ Danjah and Mz Bratt.  DOOR ¥3500


Café Domina in Sakae from 22:00

French DJ Timid Boy is hitting up Domina on this night with his smooth, funky mix.  DOOR ¥2500


Club 3Star in Imaike from 18:00

This French singer/songwriter merges black metal lyrics with jarring shoegaze guitar chords, for a sound more horrid than the sum of its 2 parts.  DOOR ¥4300

Saturday 29th

Montaz Night

Plus Park in Sakae from 19:00

Don’t call the Montaz Riderz weekend warriors.  They war daily.  In fact, I’m not sure if the oft-ignored-but-still-stylish Plus Park will survive the hit.  And knowing that the Obvious Circus’ own DJ scrying will be there with Ghost Willy and Maddlove… yeah, they’re going to shake this club to its foundation.  DOOR ¥2000 (1D + raffle entry)

Dance Craze

Club Buddha in Shinsakae from 21:00

The Mod-maniacs return to Buddha all of the groovy sounds of the 50s and 60s and that hip Mad Men fashion.  DOOR ¥2000

Natural Rhythm

Plastic Factory in Imaike from 21:00

Pure house music courtesy of DJs Andy S, Nick Sharp, Richard Autry, Will Taylor and Daniel Cheah

DOOR ¥2000 (2D)


X-Hall in Osu from 22:00

Probably one of the most popular producers of J-house music, his energetic sets will hopefully bring some attention to this cool club smack dab in the middle of the Osu shopping arcade.

Sunday 30th

Harmonium Parlour

Plastic Factory in Imaike from 19:00

Local indie superstars, Semi-On, continues to offer a sanctuary where all are welcome to be creative in and off the dance floor.  Besides all the great open-mic performances on the main stage and the work of photographer Christian Ollier in the upstairs gallery.  DOOR ¥1000 (1D)

Eskimo Callboy

Club 3Star in Imaike from 16:00

I’ll give this German “electrocore” band credit.  That’s probably one of the most hilarious names I’ve heard in a while.  But the accolades end there.  DOOR ¥3500
