Tokyo Below

Tokyo Below: A Documentary of Independent Rock Music in Japan from James R Petix on Vimeo.

Tokyo Below is a subterranean train ride through the city's underground music scene. Down here it seems as though the overwhelming pop culture of the streets of Tokyo has had little effect. Starting at its rock and roll influences and progressing into the sounds of punk, hardcore, and emo the Tokyo music scene more directly parallels its American counterpart than the native pop mainstream.
