Review

When venerable arthouse theatre Cinema Rise closed its basement auditorium a few years back, it caused widespread dismay amongst Tokyo's hipper culture vultures. But when the space was transformed into a music venue – one of Tokyo's best, in fact – the complaints turned into pleasant surprise. The tiered floor and high ceiling at WWW hint at its previous incarnation, while ensuring that even the shortest audience members can see what's happening on the stage, and the Funktion-One sound system packs a serious punch. Programming is varied, and occasionally risqué: you might catch indie rock or abstract electronica, depending on when you go.
