    Sat 9 Aug – SUMMER SONIC TOKYO

    Day One:

    Cut Off Your Hands
    The Subways
    Death Cab for Cutie
    The Fratellis
    Sex Pistols

    Day Two:
    Does it Offend You, Yeah?
    Super Furry Animals
    Justice
    Devo
    Fatboy Slim

    Of course we'd planned to watch a lot more, but the stages are so far apart, this is all we could squeeze in.


    Cut Off Your Hands
    We chanced upon this band as we were walking around. We were both like woah, this is good. So we went, and they were our great discovery of the weekend! I'm now in the market for their album.

    The Subways
    These days, live acts do NOT get any better than this. Totally impressed with their stage presence and they were SO in to the audience. In rock and roll queen, they even sang the climax in Japanese. Everyone went totally ape shit. Including me, and I don't even SPEAK japanese. I love finding bands that are better live than they are recorded.

    Death Cab for Cutie
    What's with the song choice, Ben?
    The new album blows.
