One Response to “Other Voices, Other Rooms”

    Anyone else go to Japanther?
    The band was good but the “art project” was boring. a naked guy and a guy in drag arent shocking or original in 2011. For the amount of time and resources at thier disposal Japanther dropped the ball. Would have much rather seen that band in a basement and raged.

    That guys review is preposterous. Maybe he had inside track as to what the band was thinking because none of that message was conveyed very well.

    Hipsters. ugh.
