So Marshmallow Spike finally had a gig inside the Yamanote. And there was much rejoicing.
MJ, Yoshi and the drummer who’s a really nice guy but I can’t remember his name (Kei, perhaps?) put on another rockin’ show, and we all went out for Peruvian afterwards. The hand of Diego Montoya reaches far and wide…
But after missing the first 30 seconds of the set because I got lost wandering around Yotsuya, I’ve finally given up on finding my way around Tokyo. Someday, thousands of people will suddenly appear on the streets after having been lost for hundreds of years. Samurai and craftsmen, 400-year-old yakuza and emperors long thought missing will be there, where before there was nothing.
It will be chaos. Then, and only then, will somebody decide to do something about the labyrinthine streets of Edo.
