|...Club Zepp Tokyo! Quite a famous large club, that seems to host just about every good band at least once. Its really a nice sized little theater, inexplicably situated directly underneath a gigantic ferris wheel, right on Tokyo harbor. The kids do know how to rock it here, I even saw an authentic Goat Punishment T-Shirt in the audience! Now how did that girl get a hold of that? Anyway, another suprise setlist! Tonight saw the first time "No One Else" was played with Scott in the band, and the world debut of "The Story Is Wrong", a song by Pat, with Pat on vocals! Also, the rarely seen "Slob" was in the mix, as was the lesser seen "Smile" and "Love Explosion". Everyone in the band agreed that the latter part of the set was the most rocking, but Pat was really having a ball all night, and hopes it can always be as fun as it was tonight. Scott wasnt feeling it the way he wanted to though. Such is the nature of the beast- as soon as one guy sorts out his scene, someone else has a new problem. But everyone agrees that the current set selection process is their favorite, and once all the songs have had equal chances for practice, things are gonna be amazing. The crowd was understandably stoked at the set, creating unbeleivable amounts of noise during "No One Else" "Dope Nose", and "The Good Life".
Now, down the street we saw a very strange pet store. WHy on earth would anyone feel good about having a bat, a hairless guinea pig, a chipmunk, or a prairie dog for a pet?? But there they were, legally for sale. Photography was mysteriously against the rules, but I tried anyway, because this store gave me the willies.
