Ok, so this was over a week ago, but better late than never. For those of you who missed it, last Wednesday’s album release show at Cafe du Nord for Goh Nakamura‘s new album Ulysses was a rockin’ good time with the Nakayoshi crew. Seriously. Legendary.
Opening acts Michelle Amador and Scrabbel started things off nicely, with Goh and co. finishing the night off with a solid set of his characteristic strumming and crooning. Goh played a lot of the songs on his new album, which I was sure to pick up a copy of (as well as his previous album and one of Scrabbel’s to boot). The set also featured Goh demonstrating his linguistic skills by telling the crowd his Japanese sucks (in Japanese!!!), and did any of you Radiohead fans catch him quoting “High and Dry” toward the end of the set? Nice.
Thanks again to Kurt Kurasaki for hooking it up with tickets to the show! I’m not sure what was more enjoyable, the show, or some of your favorite Nakayoshi folks unwinding at the bar on a Wednesday night. Gooood times. Look below for the incriminating photos, and be sure to stay tuned for Nakayoshi’s next night out!
