On August 23, Good Charamel Records will release their “Live from Tokyo” DVD, a film that explores Tokyo’s underground music scene. The documentary takes a look at the impact the city’s music culture has on Japanese society as a whole, and how Asian culture has begun to influence the global community.
In true Japanese style, portions of the film are shot in stop-motion animation, so anime fans, get ready. The documentary will feature interviews and live performances by popular Japanese acts such as Nisennen-mondai, Tenniscoats, DMBQ, Shugo Tokumaru and many more. Fans will also receive a download code along with their DVD that will allow them to download the film’s unique soundtrack at no extra cost.
The best part, however, is that “Live from Tokyo” will benefit those still suffering from the tsunami in Japan. The Red Cross Tsunami Relief Fund will receive a portion of the proceeds from sales of the DVD to go toward helping those affected by the March 2011 disaster.
“Live from Tokyo” features beautiful shots of Tokyo, as well as a glimpse into a music scene on the brink of taking the world by storm. The documentary benefits a good cause, plus you’ll be the first of your hipster friends to be in the know. For more information on “Live from Tokyo” and to watch the trailer, visit GoodCharamel.com.
