The nice folks at New York – Tokyo have asked us to plug an upcoming live appearance in the Big Apple by one of Japan’s best rock artists. Boom Boom Satellites, supported by alternative rock band Zamza, will be playing as part of the CMJ2010 Music Marathon & Film Festival. You can check them out on Wednesday, October 20 at Bowery Poetry Club. Organizers said, “this is a special night that CMJ and New York – Tokyo have put together. CMJ badge holders will enjoy the whole night for free and only $10 for those without. Tickets will be gone very quick.” You can find out more and pick up tickets here.
Brit music magazine NME has described BBS as “Like The Prodigy fighting Underworld with bloody big sticks.” And their CMJ bio says the Tokyo rockers “offer a brutal clash of high-tech hooks, renegade rhythm and distortion-drenched guitar.” Meanwhile, two members of Zamza are probably better known for their work with the hugely successful Judy and Mary. In a literary twist, the band’s vocalist is also a winner of the prestigious Akutagawa Prize as well as a movie director.
