trip report: japan 2014!
Last month's Japan tour was a grueling blast. This was our first time in Japan since we've been actively active on social media, and it was amazing to see how quickly the fans there got involved in posting photos and videos. You can check our FB timeline for much more (just remember to keep scrolling down until you get to September 1), but here are just a few of our favorites:

After Han, Mary, Ab and Tristan kicked things off at SuperDeluxe Tokyo with some local improvisors, the next afternoon found Han in duo with Aki Takase at Shinjuku Pit Inn (photo Kazue Yokoi)...

and then a couple of hours later playing a fun mini-set with Nipper the RCA dog at Disk Union Tokyo (video Kei Fujiwara):



The rest of the band arrived the next day and played their first full show together at Airegin Yokohama (photo Minol Umemoto):

Then Buddy's in Ekota and two nights at SuperDeluxe Tokyo, during which this moment of late-night revelry was captured by (well, at least "engineered by": the sadly-unnamed waitress is the photographer) surprise tour documenter Kei Fujiwara:

Then the Tokyo Jazz Festival! Saturday night at the Cotton Club (photo Kei Fujiwara):

and the next day outdoors in The Plaza (photo Yuko Yabe):

but this is only a small part of the story. We're still collecting great photos from Japanese fans and trying to get them on FB. And then after all of this fantastic fun, the band went to Ruvo di Puglia for the Talos Festival. Stay tuned for our next newsletter for a full report!
