REVIEW: No Age live in Nara, Japan. 9/13/14
"No Age? In Nara? What the heck are they doing playing here?”
Don’t get me wrong, I love it here- it’s just I’ve grown used to taking the train to Osaka, Kyoto, Kobe to get my live music kicks. I’ve become part of the “bridge & tunnel” set, something younger, callower me would have definitely harsh-ridiculed myself for. So, the idea of LA’s art punks crossed with old archival footage from the former ancient capital of Japan for a special event in the small-but-vital Nara International Film Festival seemed like an interesting proposition.
