JYOCHO and Nuito wanted to take a break but the rest of the bands on the NMFT11 roster wanted to do as many shows as possible.
So a 2nd show has been added for Montreal.
However, JYOCHO and Nuito will NOT be performing (though they may show up to the party). Instead, Gozen Sanji to Taikutsu, o'summer vacation, Kotei Camera Girl Drei and ame to kanmuri will perform longer sets and there will be a small party after the show.
1. o'summer vacation - 3-pc band from Kyoto combining bass, drums and vocals (no guitar) for an incendiary hardcore/noise explosion.
2. Gozen Sanji to Taikutsu - not your typical all-female band... especially since the new guitarist is male. haha. But seriously, these girls (and guy) have an excellent knack for pop sensibility but an even greater flair for the quirky and unpredictable. If Velocity Girl, Black Sabbath, Sunny Day Real Estate, Janis Joplin, Minor Threat and Jamiroquai had an orgy then nine months later they'd be the proud parents of a band like Gozen Sanji to Taikutsu. Although drummer Risa is no Buddy Rich or even a Greg Saunier her creativity and flair on drums is impressive AF. These girls (and guy) are both adorable and BADASS. They killed it in Canada last year and are back again with a bevy of new songs.
3. Koutei Camera Girl Drei - idol group that raps over sublime instrumentals that range from EDM to emo/shoegaze to experimental/glitch. The music is incredibly well-crafted in the vein of Nujabes, Evisbeats, Flying Lotus. No the music doesn't sound like those artists per se but the soul and attention to detail is cut from the same cloth. They are less like an idol group and come across more like a female group_inou.
4. ame to kanmuri - an original member of Koutei Camera Girl, molm'o'mol now performs solo as a DJ and emcee under the new stage name: ame to kanmuri
