Tune in Tokyo is busy at work preparing for 2012! We’ll be back in full swing in February. In the meantime, we’ve got some cool stuff going on during the month of January, and I’ll also talk about what we were up to at the end of the year!
On December 30th, Tune in Tokyo hosted a cosplay screening for the first U.S. theatrical release of “Battle Royale” at the Cinefamily Silent Movie Theater! This is one of our favorites, and it was awesome to see it on the big screen! Many attendees came out in fantastic BR cosplay, and there was a contest hosted by FEARnet, with a cool prize package awarded to the best cosplayer!
I dropped a mini-set before the film as well. Here’s my setlist:
Destroy All Monsters - Ultraflesh
Kittenish Kitchen - AMU
Endless Night - Halcali
