People In The Box play for people in the UK

Apr 26 2012

The UK is getting a bunch of great Japanese bands this year: Crossfaith, 8otto, Miila and the Geeks, NOKIES! and more. Time to add People In The Box to that list.

People In The Box will play for people in the UK at Liverpool Sound City. The festival runs May 17th, 18th, and 19th. They will take the stage on the first day. If that’s not enough, three previously mentioned bands 8otto, Miila and the Geeks, and NOKIES! will be there (and also at Japan Underground). All three bands perform on the same day as People in the Box.

Liverpool Sound City is a massive festival that boasts over 200 artists. It’s “the biggest musical event Liverpool has ever seen,” according to NME. It originated at SXSW 2007 as a showcase of northwestern UK bands before getting a home at home the following year. Liverpudlians are pretty lucky.

Buy tickets here. Liverpool Sound City’s site has more info as do the sites of People In The Box, 8otto, Miila and the Geeks, and NOKIES!

Enjoy the greatness of 2010’s “Kyuushigai” (旧市街, old town):

Thanks to Ting for the tip.

Update: Overlooked that Mont Blanc will also be there on May 19th. (via It Came from Japan)

    This is the best news!!! People in the Box are easily one of the best bands in the world at the moment. I’ve been to Japan a few times to see them and they never disappoint.
