I thought about writing a review for a few days and here it is.
After not attending last year's Japan Nite Concert I went to the 2010 edition at Bowery Ballroom in NYC on March 21st. The headliner band was Chatmonchy which was the main reason I initially decided to go, but I was impressed by the other musicians who played that night.
The female band JinnyOops! was the first to take the stage and really got the night to a fantastic start. Their energy was a nice surprise. The drummer was amazing, my favorite moment of the concert was at the start when she walked on stage and started the beat then the other two members walked on stage.
OKAMOTO'S were next and the lead singer had a Mick Jagger flare to him. The bands' sound had an 60's flow, especially the bassist who in my opinion stood out without upstaging any one member.
I didn't catch the first half of the Red Bacteria Vacuum set but the second half was entertaining.
Omodaka and his electronic ensemble was next. With laptop, PSP, Game Boy and DS in hand, the fusion of beeps and boops along with an oscillator got the crowd dancing.
