Maybe they were already on it. I don't know. I'm Japanese illiterate, so Electric Eel Shock may have already been on my ticket when I bought it. What I do know is they're playing the Osaka Rock Day show with Shonen Knife and Melt-Banana, which amounts to my holy trinity of Japanese rock acts all appearing in the same place, on the same day, with the same me watching. One reason I moved to Japan in the first place was to have greater opportunities to see bands like these. While I've managed to make it to quite a few Melt-Banana "lives," both Shonen Knife and EES proved as elusive as the shark before now.
I'm a little concerned that in fulfilling this quest I may die soon after. These things tend to happen. What I want to let the fates and the universe know is I plan to stick around to see a few other bands I haven't been able to catch. Still out there cruising beneath the waves remain Voredoms/Boredoms, OOIOO, 5678s, Puffy, Go!Go!7188, Spookey and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.
Which brings me to this. A list of bands and musicians I've seen live, both in Japan and in the US.
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Tom T. Hall
Smoke/Opal Foxx Quartet
Dreams So Real
Drivin N Cryin
Jet By Day
Built to Spill
Okay, that pathetic, paltry list was meant to be more impressive but now I realize years of altered states living robbed me of memories of dozens of other acts I've seen live. Actually, some of these I only learned I attended after the fact.
