A difficult decision is coming up next Friday, August 12: two equally fabulous sounding shows are happening on the same night in Tokyo.
Both shows feature two bands that don't share much in common except for the fact I like them both. At the new Yoyogi Zher the Zoo will be the Noodles, cute rocking three-girl band, and Waffles, a brilliant (ex-) college piano pop group. At the Club 251 in Shimokitazawa will be alternative girl pop band Pop Chocolat, who I adored the last time I saw them a few weeks ago but who I haven't been able to catch since then, and crowd-energizing alternative punk-funk quartet Farmstay.
I'm leaning toward the Noodles/Waffles show, but I think I won't know for sure until about 5PM on Friday.
