Pre-game for Tokyo BlipFest 2012!
On your way to Blip Tokyo already? Make plans for the pre-party on Friday at Club Heavy Stick (B1 ２chome-２７-４ Nishihara, Shibuya, Tokyo 151-0066) presented by CheapBeats! (Directions courtesy of Lazerbeat.)
The line-up so far: Cheapshot (5:30), Zen Albatross (6:00), Minikomi (6:30), Cancel (7:00), Note! (7:30), Ajipon (8:00), Orloc (8:10), Bun (8:30), Ctrix (9:00)
From the Shinjuku Station, go near the JR South Exit and take the Keio NEW line (京王新線) and not the regular Keio Line, two stops to Hatagaya Station (幡ヶ谷駅) on the LOCAL train (NOT the rapid train). Get on near the front of the 3rd car.
Leave the station through the ticket gate, turn left, go up the left stairs.
Outside, turn left, walk away from the big road. Walk past Mos Burger (the road bends to the left a little, just go straight).
After a couple of minutes there is a Liquor Store on the right (if you see a 7-11 on your left you went too far)
Turn right, walk 10 meters, and on the left you will see a green awning with a big entrance that goes into the basement of Heavy Stick.
If you have trouble and can’t find anyone to help, throw logic out the window and refer to Google maps. If you want to have an idea of what’s in store, check out clips from last year’s Pre-Party!
