Thumbs Up! tonight ….

Aloha, peeps! We had a great time at the Hawaiian Breeze event at Moon Romantic in Aoyama last night. We performed with Churamana and the Vance K band in front of a packed house and our friend, fellow local boy Zanuck Lindsey, even dropped by to say hi. I’m always impressed by how well the Japanese do their sound no matter what size venue, and last night was no exception. Moon Romantic is not a large venue, but they have great stage sound and lighting ,,, even a smoke machine!

Meanwhile, the heat’s still on! It’s so hot here in Tokyo that it’s very difficult to walk a few blocks – and walking is one of the things that I love to do in Japan. We were constantly ducking into air-conditioned stores along the way to try and cool off, but the heat just drains all the energy from you.

Our little hotel is located right next to the subway station so the boys and I took the subway to Gotanda to have lunch at our beloved MOS Burger! Yummm! I could eat there every day (especially since it’s air conditioned!). I also tried these potato chips which were seasoned with habanero chilis – big mistake! These chips were so hot, they were the only things hotter than the weather!

We have an interview with Konishiki today before heading on over to Yokohama and Thumbs Up!. See you guys there … mata, ne?

Aloha, “D”
