See also

Monday nights are often off-nights for music venues, but tomorrow night offers not only an excellent small venue show, but a rare chance to see a Japanese music pioneer.

Tomorrow night, the legendary Japanese punk band Ultra Bide will play Vaudeville Mews in Des Moines. The influential band had a huge impact on Japan's alternative, punk, and new wave scenes in the early 80's. Formed in Kyoto City in 1978, Ultra Bide released Japan's first punk album, Dokkiri Record, just two years later. The band now has more than a half-dozen releases to its credit and has played all over the world. In October of last year, Ultra Bide released their latest album, DNA vs DNA-c. Check out the band's sound in the nearby video.

The doors at Vaudeville Mews will open at 7:30 p.m., and the music will kick off at 8 p.m. Opening the show will be Des Moines bands Goldblums, John the Bastard, Skin Of Earth, and Quick Piss. There will be a $7 cover charge, and you must be 21 to get in.
