madness in the metropolis

Bar George, by George

Spotted this sign outside a bar while wandering the streets last night. Hard to tell if that's the name of the band, or whether the bar's owner was amazed - or, indeed, distraught - at having finally found someone willing to play live in his establishment.

But anyway. This was on the way back from Soma, which is on the edge of that hilly area just west of the Yamanote Line tracks between Shibuya and Daikanyama. Lots of nice little bars and cafes around there, and the novelty of having hills to navigate (Tokyo is otherwise largely flat) makes it a fun place to explore.

Don't let the Soma website fool you, by the way; they portray themselves as a massage studio which just happens to have a cafe / bar downstairs, but in actual fact they are more a cafe / bar which just happens to have a massage studio upstairs. Well, that's where my priorities lie, anyway.

Heh - excellent, nice catch, Mr. Kanai. Perhaps that means they're the house band?

"Thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen; we are Fuck. Don't forget to tip your mama-san. And try the mix pizza - it's delicious!"
