The Dawn of Stereo

070330-stereo

070330-stereo2

My friend Greg, who has been doing some very cool stuff in Tokyo with his company Tiger, is now set to open — along with a crew of producers, organizers, and artists — a new bar and event space in Roppongi called STEREO. The space is looking to host all sorts of events (contact them if you’re looking to produce fashion shows, exhibitions, parties, gigs, club events, and the like), hoping to produce a creative atmosphere for one and all. Early evenings will have a free-entry DJ lounge with drinks/meal, with evenings hosting after-parties and visiting musicians.

The official launch party is happening this coming Thursday (April 5), 18:00 to late, and will feature Australian instrumental hip-hop duo Hermitude (from 22:00). Entry is 2000 yen, but if you use the password “Jean Snow,” you get in for half-price.

STEREO will be set up within a space called Flower (2nd floor of the ROI Building, above Paddy Foley’s, opposite Don Quixote), and so will not be active every night — check the schedule here.
