281_Anti-Nuke Art Retrospective in Roppongi


Get your fix of both art and politics at 281_Anti-Nuke’s exhibition at the Pink Cow bar in Roppongi, Japan. Tourists and Tokyoites may have seen 281′s work conspicuously stickered on public property throughout the city.


Show reviews: Heavy Blanket (w/ J Mascis) and Obliterations, The Mattson 2 w/ Money Mark at The Satellite


The Satellite has become a backup to The Echo in recent years, so I was stoked to see two rad bills there in the same week. Gotta love being able to walk to shows, especially when it’s a friend’s band.
