In just 3 days Shimokita Sound Cruising, a town wide music festival celebrating the Tokyo underground music scene. Spread across 17 different venues around Shimokitazawa station, over 100 Indie bands from not only Japan but even as far as Poland. Every genre of music will be covered, from experimental noise, to Tokyo pop idol. If you have a chance make sure to come by Saturday.
