Hot off a live performance at Japan’s recent Rugby World Cup, The Syamisenist hits the UK as part of their re:tokyo live tour.
What to expect
The Syamisenist is a three piece band—with one drummer and lead and bass shamisenists. The band is a tale of old meets new, with the shamisen (perhaps Japan’s most iconic traditional instrument) played with blistering punk passion. They’ve worked up a considerable reputation in Tokyo’s indie music circles. That makes this is a rare opportunity to see one of Japan’s most exciting live acts in London.
RE:MAKE, A Surrey-based band with Jrock influences and Yuhito Ikehara are supporting. Making for a full evening music with a Japanese theme.
The event takes place in the Hope & Anchor pub in Islington—a regular spot for underground (literally) live music. It’s a short walk from Highbury and Islington on the Victoria and Overground lines. Alternatively, it’s 15 minutes on foot from Angel station on the Northern Line. Be sure to check our guide for more cheap and free things to do in Islington.
