Tickets are now on sale for VooDoo Hawaiians latest concert at Tokyo‘s popular Club251. The venue is located in the basement of the office building owned by Two Five One Co, Ltd in one of the most interesting and lively districts of Tokyo, Shimokitazawa. The area is known for its hungry bands and it’s loud and flashy nightlife. Club251 has hosted a variety of acts that one would consider the underdogs of the music industry, or to put it another way, artists that haven’t given in to the mainstream. SpecialThanks, Thee 50’s High Teens, Broken Doll, Earth Crisis, and The Monochrome Set are just a few groups that have played to the excitement of patrons in this sub-level venue .
And on Saturday, November 26th it will be the Voodoo Hawaiians, a rock band formed in 1999. Their roster includes lead guitarist and vocalist Kanako Nakayama. Nakayama is former lead guitarist of one of Japan‘s biggest all female groups of the 1980’s and 90’s, Princess Princess. Nakayama has been performing steadily with VooDoo Hawaiians since 2012 while occasionally getting together with her Princess Princess band mates for reunion concerts.
VooDoo Hawaiians will be sharing the stage at 251 with Wild Junkie, Punktronica (Nickey and Tatsu), and Chukyo Dave for one night of musical bliss. In addition 1980’s Japanese metal band Doberman will perform that night. The group has reunited and are currently performing to promote their latest album -Reunion-.
