TOKYO GOTH INDUSTRIAL PARTY: CEVIN KEY OF SKINNY PUPPY, ANTI-FEMINISM, PSYDOLL, MISTRESS MAYA, LUKE OF CHAOS ROYALE.
Hours after I landed in Tokyo, I was outfitted in Moi-meme-Moitie and ready to party all night with Yukiro, G-suS and other Shinjuku spooky-types.
Here’s Yukiro doing what he does best… torturing boys.
Before hitting our final destination — Mistress Maya’s Goth event, Overfused — we got cans of “konbini alcohol” from the aptly-named Family Mart.
Inside, it was a grand Gothic reunion with Michael and Kana. Isn’t her figure to die for?
Outside Club Marz, we ran into Visual Kei band Anti Feminism. They had just finished performing in Shibuya and were on the way to Star Cafe, a favorite hangout spot for Visual Kei rockers. Guitarist Shogo was hopping around and throwing gang-like hand signals in an after-show buzz!
The night’s headliner was CEvin Key of Skinny Puppy, who played a long DJ set. He congregated backstage with Maya, me, Nekoi (Psydoll vocals and keyboards) and Yukiro.
Kousuke set up a photobooth; I love his high-contrast, high-saturation photos. The one on the left is a tad scandalous!
In addition to DJ-ing and organizing Overfused, Mistress Maya (left) set up a food table and made a delicious, spicy green curry. Luke of Chaos Royale (right) ended the night with a racy performance featuring two girls and “extreme noise for pole dancers.”
Wouldn’t you like to come to one of Maya’s Goth parties? Are you a fan of Skinny Puppy, Anti Feminism (the band, not the concept) and/or convenience store alcohol?
