Tzadik Label Music Series ~ New Voices from Japan II: Power of the New Japanese Woman
Two wild girl bands take over: the raw energy and punk-noise-influenced guitar-drum duo Afrirampo; and the color-coded pop-punk-rock trio (two basses and drums) ni-hao!, with all three girls singing in complex contrapuntal arrangements filled with looping riffs and unexpected twists. Both bands are composed of women in their 20s; their energetic performances involving elaborate stage shows, costumes and puppets provide a glimpse into Japan’s latest scene in new rock music.
Tickets: $28; $20 Japan Society members.
