Yokohama Jugband Festival 2007

'your feet's too big' - mooney & his lucky rhythm

like music?
live in/around tokyo?
want an interesting day out?

well, come along to the 6th annual yokohama jugband festival...
it's a great day, with great musicians from all over japan - and all playing jugband style music.

there's not much info out there in english (there is in japanese though...), but i'll try to get the basics down here.

Date: Saturday 21st April

Time: 13:00 ~

Place: There are 2 main places for the Jugband Festival: Joinus Park & Movil Building
Joinus Park is located on the roof of the Sotetsu Joinus Building, which is located out of the west exit of Yokohama station.
Movil Building is about a 5~10 minute walk from the west exit of Yokohama station.

The event in Joinus Park (13:00~ ) is free. I recommend taking some bubbles & a 6-pack of beer...
At the Movil Building, there are actually 3 places with bands playing (all on 3rd Floor)
・ El Sueno (エルスウェーニョ) (14:00~ ) which is free, but you have to buy one drink
・ Sotetsu Honda Gekijou (
相鉄本多劇場) (14:00 ~ )
Thumbs Up (15:00 ~ ) There's one ticket for the last 2, which is ¥2,500, but you can wander in and out as you please (as long as you don't lose you ticket!!)

so, if you want to do something a little different, come along. i'll be there!
(like that's a sales point.......)
