THE WILD ROVER

One of the best days I had last year in Tokyo was at the irish punk festival called Wild Rover – my write up on the day is here.  I LOVED The Cherry Coke$, Junior and Royal Shamrock, and saw Junior again the week later, cos they were just that good 🙂

Well, the Wild Rover 2010 festival details are now up – woohoo!!

It’s on Monday 22 March in Shibuya, with a few bands playing the day before on Sunday 21st at Glad starting at 6PM, tickets are 2000yen.  Many of the bands from last year are playing, but there are new ones to discover too.

AAAAND…the Wild Rover hits Osaka on Sunday the 27th!! There’s a few less bands but no less fun.

This year Punkspring is on April 4, and look at the calibre of bands!  I haven’t been to the festival before, but have seen a bunch of the bands – Gallows! Lost Prophets! Stranglers! Face to Face!  Ok, too many exclamation marks already…
There’s a whole bunch of other stuff coming up too, but that’s enough for one post. Gotta go check out flights to Tokyo…
