TGIF in Tokyo! Tonight June 17th “This and That Cafe” to Feature Amazing Lineup of Artists

Tonight (Friday June 17) at 7:30, the Super Deluxe performance venue in Roppongi will be hosting the 29th incarnation of This & That Cafe, an event where artists, both international and local, come together for a great night of art, music and fun.

The musical acts range from the soothing alternative rock sounds of Metro Ongen, a four-piece Japanese band, to a skilled drummer from Ghana named Winchester Nii Tete Boye, to even a didgeridoo player from Japan named Smily.

There are also an equal number of impressive visual art performances lined up such as onnacodomo, a collection of three DJs who create spontaneous artwork with computer graphics, mirrors, toys and lights. In addition, Shinpei Kashihara will be doing more traditional live art using the traditional “suiboku-ga” (ink painting) style.

So, if you’re on your way home from work, head over to Roppongi and get a seat for some drinks, good times and amazing artists who will be intermingling with the crowd. Here’s the description provided by Super Deluxe’s website:

This&That Café celebrates its 29th volume by welcoming all “City Shapers”- the new-generation urbanites who are changing Tokyo’s creative landscape. Whether it’s a drum master hailing from Ghanna or a “suiboku” ink painter from Tokyo, all walks of life and all manner of expressions are welcome. Just be sure to come with an open mind, and be prepared to leave a little bit different than when you arrived.
