Gokumon
 (Uchikubi Doukoukai) 
-from Tokyo, JP
-The band 'Uchikubi Gokumon Doukoukai' is a three-piece band formed in Japan in 2004. While active within Japan under the kanji name '???????' (Uchikubi Gokumon Doukoukai), representing Japanese culture, they operate internationally under the more easily pronounceable name 'GOKUMON.'

Featuring a mixed-gender lineup with a male guitar/vocalist and a female rhythm section, the band is known for its unique style that combines a heavy sound with a 7-string guitar and 5-string bass. This distinctive musical approach, coupled with laid-back lyrics infused with a sense of everyday life, has established a new genre known as 'Seikatsu Micchaku-gata Loud Rock' (Life-Immersed Loud Rock).

In their live performances, the band incorporates VJ (visual jockey) elements, projecting visuals and lyrics on screens synchronized with the music. This not only enhances the auditory experience but also provides a visually captivating aspect.

As they celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2024, the band is embarking on their first US tour, covering five cities.



Backdrop Cinderella
-from Tokyo, JP
-Formed in Ikebukuro in 2006, Backdrop Cinderella play an eccentric, fast-paced brand of punk rock that combines influences from ska, metal, Irish and folk music with some truly ridiculous lyrics. Energetic frontman Dendeke Ayumi dances, jumps and hangs upside down from the ceiling while he sings, and he is backed up by the more soulful voice of afro-hairstyled guitarist Toshima "Perry" Wataru and the high-pitched shouts of bassist Asahi Kyanako, which add an even more eclectic feel to their sound.

After over a decade together, Backdrop Cinderella have never changed members or deviated from their vision, bringing fans more wild and irreverent songs each year. The members have adopted the phrase “unza unza” to describe both their sound and the free and instinctive way that fans dance to it.
