Dustin Wong was introduced to the world as a member of Ponytail, and has spent the past several years making incredibly deep and complex albums of looped solo electric guitar for Thrill Jockey. Takako Minekawa first rose to international prominence as a Shibuya-kei singer in the mid-90s with the song “Fantastic Cat” and her albums Roomic Cube and Cloudy Cloud Calculator. Their songs are embued with a relentless cheerfulness that belies their technicality, steeped in the history of Japanese pop music and exuding the joy of discovery and exploration. The duo are currently on tour in support of their second album together, Savage Imagination.
On Monday, Nov. 24, Dustin Wong and Takako Minekawa will be performing a headlining concert in Austin at Mohawk. Austin’s own Daniel Francis Doyle and Deep Time open the show. The best part? We have two tickets to giveaway to one of our lucky Red River Noise readers.
