Living here on a foreign land, I cannot seem to avoid the feeling of being an outsider, the other. Far removed from my language and roots, I find comfort in nostalgia through music, particularly of the 80's era Japan. City Pop gives me a sense of that familiar breezy spring air, smell of the ocean, color of the summer sky and big stormy clouds that ground me. Join me at J-Boogie, a free monthly 80's J Pop dance party at Killngsworth Dynasty with NIGHTCHILDE on second Saturdays of each month.
