My hands-down favorite Tokyo event, Friday Bloody Friday, had become a thing of the past some time ago, no doubt to the disappointment of me and all the others for whom it was regular monthly affair. When I was going it was held in Mit-chans basement Gaienmae spot Viva le Vie, and always offered a great combination of art, music, and creative people that made it one of the most scenes going.
Yesterday we enjoyed an FBF reunion of sorts at Roppongi’s SuperDeluxe, gathering under the Friday Bloody Friday banner once again to celebrate the birthdays of the event creators, Adrian and JB.
SuperDeluxe was a great choice of venue, allowing plenty of room for a crowd which just kept growing from 9 till the doors were closed at 3 the next morning. DJs Sister Chill and Guchagucha handled the music early on, with DJ Ohming taking over later, while somewhere in the middle of it all dancer Yumi exploded out of a makeshift and into a wildly sensual dance performance.
Rie and I cut out of there when the smoke got to be too much for us, which happened to be long after the trains stopped running. Rare for us, these days, but a more than welcome diversion from our otherwise sedate baby-expecting lifestyle. Now, if we can just these things happening once a month or so…
