You’re two American / Aussie living fools experiencing your first night in Tokyo. You read some tips on Lonely Planet and end up in the popularly suggested Shibuya area for a bit of nightlife.
The recommended bar you hit up is dead but fortunately you see two Japanese hipster babes walking down a staircase across the street… you follow..
What happens next is a tourist miracle. A four band Japanese indie rock band bill loaded with talent both on and off the stage.
Personal favourites were Mega Hyper 510 Family. Incredible people with glorious musicality and energy.
QuietColor strongly recommends a listen.

Indie music in Japan is fresh, beautiful, and tasty.
