MASA solo acoustic show for Jack&Betty -
A Celebration of 60th Anniversary of Cinema

Saturday, Nov 24, 2012


I can’t believe I have a few more gigs coming up before I’m going back to London and I’m very lucky to have these gigs.

I have 3×30 miniute-slot for the event ” A Trip To Films In The Distant Past. “. This is a celebration of 60th Anniversary of the independent cinema Jack&Betty. The event involves a cinema poster exhibition ” Cinema and Play Design Work” by Masakatsu Ogasawara and 2 talk shows.

I will be playing after an opening party and talk shows. Mr Inayoshi (the owner of an event space Nitehi Works) and Mr Ogasawara kindly gave me 3 slots even at last minute. How lucky I am!

It will be a great exposure to O-ARC music to cinema fan in Japan and I’m so excited about it!

If you are in Japan please come down to Yokohama. It’s a only 1 hour away by train from Tokyo.

Hope see you there

A gig at Shichoshitsu 2

Monday, Nov 19, 2012

Thanks very much for the people who supported me at Shichoshitsu 2 on 10th November.

I really enjoyed playing and appreciated your attentiveness. The sound on stage was fantastic. I definitely recommend you go to Shichoshitsu 2 if you are in Yokohama. It’s a lovely little music cafe.

I also made some new friends. This is another thing that made last night memorable. Oh, and not to forget the sweet potato curry I ate at Shichoshitsu 2 after the show. It was absolutely gorgeous.

Hope see you at another gig.
