This month Tokyo welcomes three of the world's most renowned house DJs--Sasha, John Digweed, and James Zabiela. Sasha and Digweed will play their first Tokyo gig together on November 22nd at the LaForet Museum in Roppongi, a well overdue event considering the pair's worldwide popularity. In the meantime, Sasha is doing residency at Womb. Tomorrow, November 18th, he is going to team up with James Zabiela--a junior member of the team on the rise--to bring Tokyo their U.K. beats.
Last week showed a fair amount of fans packed into Womb's intimate surroundings for the opening party, where Sasha performed alone. But be weary, Sasha’s popularity will cost you hefty load. To enter womb you will need 5,500 Yen; and to see Sasha and Digweed you will have to get advance tickets for 7,000 Yen a piece.
November also brings Satoshi Tommie home to Tokyo with a party at Air on the 18th. The competition with Sasha and Zabiela will definitely be tough, but the event won’t break your wallet. It’s a mere 3,500 Yen.
Electraglide, the last event in November, is one of the biggest electronic music festivals of the year held at the Makuhari Messe convention center. This year Electroglide will feature Underworld, Coldcut, Autechre, Chris Cunningham, Vitalic, Carl Cox, Adrian Sherwood, Tiga, Towa Tei, Ken Ishii, Sharam Jey and The Light Surgeons. The tickets will run you 8,000 Yen each.
An expensive month for electronic music fans to say the least, but perhaps well worth it.
