O-ARC @ The Dublin Castle

Wednesday, Jan 9, 2013

We are excited to announce our first show in 2013. Since Masa needed to go back to Japan last August to take care of his parents we haven’t played for a while. This is our first time to get together since he came back to London. So we are really looking forward to this gig. We will be on 8:45pm.

Hope to see you there.

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
