Ok so what would be the best possible way to debut a new venue, replacing a landmark institution in an earthquake-hit city? Why have Guitar Wolf play the opening of course! Oh and make it free! Oh and the Transistors can open too!
Holy heck what a night. Gorgeous summers evening, hanging in the new, rather large, but still inviting Dux Live, with the massive side-doors wide open to show off a lovely sun-set, enjoying a Ginger Tom or 3… then the Transistors came on and kicked arse – James was climbing around the the furniture, trying in vein to get up to the overlooking 2nd story.
I thin Guitar Wolf may actually be undead. These guys have been playing Ramones-style super fast ‘lock and loll’ since 1987, and since they take no breaks between songs, they whip up a bit of a maelstrom of raunchy party-vibes and killer rock’b’roll moves. Great show-men, addictive energy, just plain all round great show from these Japanese legends.
Looking forward to a ton more shows at the new Dux Live.
