Hosted by the creative agency TokyoDex, This&That is a periodic event where music and visual arts meld in unexpected collaborations. Vol. 33 celebrates the end of spring and start of summer with a wonderfully eclectic mix of sounds that range from klezmer to post-hardcore rock. On the visual side, no fewer than two special guest artists from the USA will be creating art on site, while Tokyo’s own Atsushi Harata will perform his signature “Light Paintings” set to live music. Spring is still in the air so the vibe remains cool, but it’s definitely about to get hot in here!
Entry is 1,000 yen at the door and includes one drink.
