Shugo Tokumaru - In Focus?

Shugo Tokumaru – In Focus?

Shugo Tokumaru has a busy year ahead of him. Shortly after releasing his fifth full-length album, In Focus? (out now), Tokumaru confirmed a U.S. tour opening for Kishi Bashi, including first ever trip to the west coast & SXSW.

Kicking off on February 22 in Seattle and concluding March 9th in New Orleans, Tokumaru will be performing In Focus? as an intimate, solo set each night, a contrast to the 6-piece band live shows he usually plays in Japan.

Cheock out the video for “Katachi” directed by Kijek/Adamski, featuring stop-motion display of colorful objects set in time to the beat of the song.

Also, listen to “Decorate” from In Focus?

Japandroids – Shugo Tokumaru – Harouki Zombie at SXSW

South By Southwest is much more than music. It’s a festival that’s takes over the heart of Austin, Texas, centered around the Austin convention center, and is going on now (March 8-17). Imagine a 10-day TedTalks presentation with both feature-length and short-film, conventions, tradeshows, interactive technologies, all converging in one of the best foodie cities in the Americas. It, in the words of the SXSW site, “offer(s) the unique convergence of original music, independent films, and emerging technologies.” Plus lots of great food. And beer.

Three great reasons to go:
