Those good people from J-Pop Go have sent us the details of their spooky Halloween themed j-pop gathering in London. It'll be on Saturday 20th October at Cafe Manga by County Hall, near Westminster Tube. The fun is set to start at 7pm, tickets will be £5 (with discounts for flyers and cosplayers). As always they've got a good line up, along with some great prizes from ADV. Readers should also note that this event is for over 18's only.
Press release as follows:
J-Pop Go returns on Saturday 20th October to present a Halloween-themed night - a spooky evening complete with the usual J-Pop goodness.
We'll have a night of fantastic J-Pop and J-Rock from old school to underground through to anime and game tunes courtesy of our DJs including Jimmy Messerschmitt, Chococat, Voxie, and GenkiBoi. We're also adding a new recruit to our team in the shape of DJ Yamada. Expect a range of sounds from the likes of Puffy, Tommy February6, Polysics, Guitar Vader, Mika Bomb, YMO, Asian Kung Fu Generation, Halcali, Utada Hikaru, Rip Slyme and much more. Cosplay is encouraged ^_^
J-Pop Go will also be giving away free prizes courtesy of sponsors ADV via a Raffle Draw on the night. Always a popular extra, we'll be handling the draw slightly differently this time by flagging up the winners at the reception, rather than stopping the music to announce them.
Our venue of choice will again be Cafe Manga (which is at the Westminster Bridge end of County Hall). Kick off is 7pm on Saturday October 20th. Tickets will be £5 with discounts for flyers and cosplayers.
You can pre-order tickets via the new J-Pop Go merchandise site which
