Asobi Seksu - New Years (Live) in NYC at The Japan Society
Asobi Seksu - New Years Live in NYC at The Japan Society Saturday April 12, 2010, as part of the Society's j-CATION festivities, covered here in The Wall Street Journal.
During the intimate performance in front of approximately 230 fans who paid $5 a ticket for the under the radar show, singer Yuki Chikudate explained this was the first time in a few years the band played "plugged in," having been playing acoustic sets up until now, as well as recording an acoustic album at Olympic Studios in London. What's more, Chikidate informed the audience, this was to be one of their last live shows for a while; the band is ready to hunker down in the studio to record new material for a new album. "We hope you'll be here when we get back," she offered, "and we hope you'll like it."
