Nihongaku Radio Episode 33: SXSW and Japan Nite Return

Japan Nite, the annual tradition of shipping a bunch of great Japanese artists to SXSW in Austin, TX and a subsequent tour in a few major North American cities, is upon us. Thanks to the lovely Audrey Kimura of Benten Records and the various bands currently en route to SXSW, we’ve got a special Japan Nite edition of this, the 33rd episode of Nihongaku Radio. Let’s listen!

As promised, here’s the lowdown on where to see some of the shows I mentioned in this episode:

Japan Preview Show
Japan Nite
Peelander Fest at The Grackle
Peelander Family Jamboree

For more information on Japan Nite, visit the official tour site.
