The POLYSICS are officially the best band in the world. I took some of the worst photos imaginable, but what do you expect from a swirling dance floor and no flash photography. It makes for some crappy photos. Here's an example. I have dozens more just like this if you want to see them. ARGGHHHH!!!!

Fortunately I got some quiet time with the band earlier. Did the fatherly thing and showed them baby pictures and then blazed through broken english, combined with my broken Japanese and WALA....We are communicating. YAY!!

HIRO AND I BEFORE THE SHOW

FUMI AND I BEFORE THE SHOW

The show was packed beyond belief, lots of dancing, except for one balding punker with eyeliner who decided to crowd surf. DAMN... I hate crowd surfing more than anything. Followed by a high five from his buddy after said crowd surfing commenced. Why am I so judgemental?

Devo shirts a plenty and lots of smiling faces made for an enjoyable evening. I had driven up with Bob from Shinobu and his friend Max. Max is afraid of girls, so Bob and I urged him to meet somebody at the show, but no luck. He is scared, which is fine. I told him to go to WHOLE FOODS and find hipster girls in the herbal tea section to ask out. I said I'd give him $25. Let's see if it happens.

Be well.
Peace,
