For anyone who wants to meet before the show let's meet at the "Bean Bag Coffee House",  diagonally South from the Independent at the corner of Divisadero and Hayes, at 7:00:

The show itself starts at 8:00 (doors open 7:30)

Be warned that parking around the Independent can be pretty tight, so plan accordingly.

 

The bands:

 

NOKIES!
Young Kyoto college students whose loose guitar style (think The
Strokes) and off-kilter beats (a la Vampire Weekend) will make you
smile, jump and dance.

The ZZZ's
All-girl trio from Hyogo, featuring members of Hystoic Vein (who
played Japan Nite's US tour in 2011).

Kao=S
Performance trio with Jack playing tsugaru-shamisen (kind of a
Japanese banjo), Shuji on guitar, and "sword-dancing" singer Kaori.
