Fresh off their blazing performance at Microsoft’s Tokyo Game Show Party, Grasshopper DeManufacture (Akira Yamaoka, Massimo Guarini, Raf “Pointzero” and Gez Fry) are bringing punk back in 2010!
Shimokitazawa 2-4-5 Mosia B1F
Grasshopper Manufacture invaded the Shimo-Kitazawa GARDEN on October 21st, 2010 night for Hopper’s 4, a celebration of music, movies, and the release of No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle!
The event was huge success, with over 300 people on hand for the festivities.
Hopper’s 4 was made possible by the hard work of the Hopper’s 4 staff, many of whom worked behind the scenes and appeared on the stage.
GhM staff in the line-up included a scorching DJ set by David and Hagio-san, a tastefully risqué burlesque show by Hayashi-san, a hip hop/rock mash up featuring Iida-san, Hagawa-san, and Yuki-san with SR/The Riot, and Massimo, Gez, and Yamaoka-san performing as Grasshopper DeManufacture with Daniel on death metal vocals.
Of course, the show wouldn’t be complete without a healthy dose of Suda 51, who entertained the crowd with insights into No More Heroes origins, demos of NMH2, a beam katana deathmatch.
Many thanks to all the people who made the event possible and all the staff who came out to support GhM on this memorable night.
