Simon Yates & Friends Live Tomorrow Night (Saturday, May 21st)

Tomorrow night, our friend Simon Yates will be playing live acoustic music with a couple of his friends at Andy's Imagine, a cool little bar in Rokkomichi, near Kobe. If you're down Kobe way (or you're looking for an excuse to be down Kobe way), you should definitely check it out.

Here are the details...

Who? Simon Yates on guitar & vocals, Shinchan on drums, & (probably) Glen Gregus on Bass
Where? Andy's Imagine (090-1133-1501) in Rokkomichi, near Kobe - Click here for map
When? Saturday, May 21st, from 8:30 - 10:00 pm
How much? It's free! The band are playing for tips. Throw some money in the jar to thank them for sharing their time & talent!

The above video will give you an idea of what to expect. (Please note that Tomo, the bassist in that video, will probably not be playing this weekend.) Here's a picture I took at the last gig...

Simon, Shinchan, & Glen work their magic!

By the way, Simon's last gig was a charity event to raise money for the victims of the Tohoku earthquake. Simon, Shinchan, Glen & their special guest Ryouta Yukii raised 21400 yen. They donated the money to Diane Orrett to help pay for her trips to Tohoku evacuation centres to cheer up the kids with her balloon art shows and old people with her Rakugo performances.
