Nisennenmondai are (finally) coming back to the States!
» Who's got two thumbs and is excited?
Seriously, I nearly crapped myself when I heard the news. Back in April the chances of a US tour stood at about 50/50, but now we can safely say the odds are 100%. Thanks in part to mutual fans BATTLES, who will be bringing the girls from Nisennenmondai on a cross-country tour that will end right here in our own backyard (which means we can probably expect an additional show or two in smaller venues... hopefully).
I believe it was CMJ 2005 or 2006 the last time they came to New York, so don't take this visit lightly. Otherwise, all you'll be left with is photos of them in Japan.
