Ace Japanese Bands Set to Play Brighton and London This Weekend

Shibuya-kei legends Buffalo Daughter will make their first UK appearance in 13 years at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton on Saturday 10 May. They'll be playing the JAPAN RISING, sponsored by Manga Entertainment, with guitar slap duo TarO&JirO, award winning singer-songwriter Mayu Wakisaka, and a heap of free sushi!

This will be the first time Japan has provided resources for a pop/rock showcase like this in Europe. The showcase is organised by The Foundation for Promotion of Music Industry and Culture (PROMIC) and Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ), and coordinated by It Came From Japan. It is part of a remit to create overseas showcase opportunities for performers at Tokyo International Music Market; further showcases will follow.

All three bands will also play special sets in London following the festival. Buffalo Daughter will perform at The Shacklewell Arms in East London on Sunday 11 May, while TarO&JirO and Mayu Wakisaka will be joined by Korean rock act Asian Chairshot for JAPAN UNDERGROUND at The Pipeline on Monday 12 May, with NEO's own Tom Smith on the decks.
