Japan Shoegazer Festival '13

Matthew Bedford

The start of 2013 is an exciting time for shoegaze fans in Japan. Shoegaze icons My Bloody Valentine will spend almost a week in Tokyo and Osaka as a result of the original three dates selling rather quickly. While this is the lead story of shoegaze happenings in the country, High Fader Records has been working hard to prepare shoegazers throughout Japan for the big event with another installment of the Japan Shoegaze Festival. The Festival will again have dates in Tokyo and Osaka. The first leg of the event will be on Sunday, January 27th at club vijon in Osaka's Kita-Horie area. The second leg falls on Saturday, December 9th at Tokyo's Kichijoji Club Seata. As the My Bloody Valentine tour will be going on on the 7th, 8th, and 10th of February in Tokyo, the Festival will make sure that shoegaze fans won't have to take a day off.

The Osaka show in particular looks to have received a major boost compared to last year, offering a more substantial lineup including this year's headliners, Tokyo-based "cruyff in the bedroom". Returning to the Osaka leg of the festival, from Hiroshima, Speaker Gain Teardrop will be supporting cruyff in the bedroom, along with the stars of the show Lemon's Chair.

The Tokyo leg again boasts a strong lineup, headlined by Tokyo Shoegazer. In addition to some great shoegaze band, there will be an electronica stage headed by Age of Punk and featuring one of my favorite artists Shelling.

This year we will be attending the Osaka show and we couldn't be more excited. For more information on the event please check out Lemon's Chair's site or follow them on twitter and of course follow for updates. Below are the details of each show courtesy of Lemon's Chair (
