30 things to do in Tokyo this weekend
Friday | Saturday | Sunday


Claska Picnic Garden
It may still be too early for beer garden season, but boutique hotel Claska is taking advantage of the spring weather by turning its rooftop into an al fresco picnic spot. They supply the booze – you bring the baguettes. Read more

Play Park 2012
Oddball instrument makers Maywa Denki, big-band Shibusashirazu and the Tokyo Electrock Stars dancers will be out for the start of Play Park, a ten-day fest where anyone's welcome – as long as they keep things short. Read more

Tiago Japan Tour
A resident DJ at Lisbon's renowned Lux Frágil club for over a decade, Tiago has developed a talent for leading clubbers into strange places – while still keeping them dancing. Catch him alongside Sly Mongoose tonight. Read more

Love Tribe feat. Wattie Green
Named after an Appalachian guitarist (no, really), Tennessee-raised DJ and producer Wattie Green draws on the spirit of early-'90s jackin' and swing house – music so infectious, it's like catnip for clubbers. Read more

F.I.R.E. feat. Dirty Dimension Special
Dutchman Irwan Kartosen has been mashing together house, hip hop and R&B since long before club music became the default currency of the urban scene. Get a taste as he guests at Warehouse702. Read more

Hennessy Artistry
They certainly aren't skimping on talent at the latest in this cognac-soaked party series, where undisputed hip hop royalty DJ Premier will be rubbing shoulders with France's Hocus Pocus and a solid selection of local acts. Read more

Grande Biere 2012

After selling out a couple of shows at Tokyo Dome City Hall, Extreme are in a generous mood: not only have they scheduled an extra date, they're even letting the audience take pictures during the gig. Read more

Kaikoo Boogie
This warmup for tomorrow's Kaikoo Popwave Festival '12 is every bit as chalk-and-cheese as the main event, pitching leftfield rappers Doseone and Origami against reformed post-hardcore trio Bitch Magnet. Huh? Read more

Tyme. x Tujiko & Kufuki
Singer Tujiko Noriko and producer Tyme. give the warm, gauzy electronica from their Gyu album another airing this evening, at a joint release party with psychedelically inclined label mates Kufuki. Read more

Club Snoozer
Former Snoozer magazine editor Soichiro Tanaka and namesake Ryota return to Unit for another night of indie disco shenanigans, this time with a guest set from melodic indie rock trio Ogre You Asshole. Read more

An 'only in Japan' gig, if ever we saw one: nearly four decades after they split, underrated Brit glam rockers Silverhead are reuniting here, supported by a local band who only play songs by Brian Jones. Really. Read more
