REASONS TO COME EARLY: Japanese Breakfast
Japanese Breakfast’s 2016 album, Psychopomp, is probably one of my favorite albums of last year. Filled with an eclectic range of sounds from shoegaze, psychedelic rock, to pop, Michelle Zauner fills in her album with accounts of pain and beauty through incredible music. Honestly, I went to a Porches show last year to see Japanese Breakfast open, and man, I must say, that was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Enthusiastic energy carried the show with lots and lots of jumping and a lovely surprise cover of “Dreams” by The Cranberries! As a shoegaze fan, I cannot express more excitement for the duo of this amazing band and of course, Slowdive. If you’re even remotely on the fence about attending this show, I hope this is enough of an encouragement: think of it is as a two-in-one experience!
Get tickets here for Slowdive with Japanese Breakfast at 9:30 Club on May 7.
