Shelf Life live in Tokyo in July

Shelf Life, my rock 'n' roll band here in Tokyo, have a gig on the 28th of July at Rubber Soul in Kokubunji - way out west on the Chuo Line. We'll be previewing some of the new material from our forthcoming mini-LP, which is due out at the end of the year.

If you're reading this, happen to live in Tokyo and are free on the night in question, come along and check us out! Doors open at 8pm and entry is free. A map of the venue is here.

In order to up the ante, I've set up a webpage for the band now too. That can be found here.

Finally, I've also gone and set up my own YouTube account. This was necessary in order to get a means of embedding the above video into the Shelf Life MySpace page. However, it should be a good means of getting any films that I make in the future up about around.

One of the nice things about having a Mac is how easy it is to make video. I did quite a bit of work with analogue video back in the early to mid 90's, but haven't really returned to it in the digital age. About time I did, really.

The above is a short clip from a cover of a Stones tune, shot at old, old show. I used it to get to grips with the new software. Works kinda nicely as a promo for the next show too, I guess...
