Next time I’ll wear I wig and glasses. Or something. 3rd or 4th time I’m called up on the stage at a Gamarjobat show. The disguise idea pops up because I think I stand out too much in a crowed mostly made up of Japanese with dark hair. So a Caucasian with hair trimmed to a minimum kind of is easy to pick on.
Chie and I met Club Leo in Shibuya. We had tickets to watch Gamarjobat… Again 🙂 It was their last show on this tour that covered all 23 wards of Tokyo.
This show was one of the better that they have done the last couple of years or so. At least of the ones that we have watched. The only bad part with this show was that I was brought up on stage. They had a black screen that they use for different things, like the Escalator. This time they also used it as a magic screen. They walked in as “humans” from one side and came out as “chickens” on the other side… Well, that’s when they brought me up on stage and let me know by body language that they wanted me to walk through the “magic” behind the screen… Oh, I forgot that the one that picked me up was the one with the red mohican and, at least when he picked me up, a devilish smile on his face.
So, there I was, on the stage in front of 2800 people just about to make a fool out of myself. So I take a deep breath and walk in behind the screen and when I came out on the other side I was walking like a chicken, “MAGIC!” I quickly turn around and see the screen about 2 meters away, thinking to myself “it is over soon, just a few more step.” Then I see a red mohican and an even more devilish smile behind the screen looking at me as he starts to move the screen away from me. Damn it if I was not the quickest chicken the 2800 in the audience have ever seen.
Afterwards I got a cherry lollipop and a big round of applause before I could return to the safety of my seat. At least there were no one besides Chie, Non and Ryo that knew me in the audience 🙂
Afterwards Chie and I walked around in Shibuya before we again joined Club Leo for dinner. Yummy!
Today we enjoyed another show by Gamarjobat. It was really good, and some changes to the usual parts with the bag. Mainly because they kid that come up at that is supposed to lift the bag easily where Gamarjobat cannot did a very good mimic of Gamarjobat not being able to lift the bag 🙂
Laughing for 1.5 hours is hard work. And you get hungry. So from the Gamarjobat show venue we walked to TY Harbor where we had dinner. Almost every Friday I go here with some work colleagues for lunch, but this was the first time to come for dinner.
The service is good here, the atmosphere with the closeness to the water is nice, and the food is OK, though a bit expensive. We enjoyed each other’s company and talked about previous Gamarjobat shows and more.
When it was time to go home, Non went here way while the rest of us went to Shinagawa station (passing the Sony Ericsson office). The station was not as busy as in the morning or early evenings but still there were some people on the move. After a ride on Yamanote-sen and a short walk we were back home and went to bed. Goodnight!
Chie and I met Non and Ryo inside the Otodama Sea Studio at Zushi beach. We were excited about another Gamarjobat show. But it took quite a while for Gamarjobat to show up. First there was a duo with one guitar that sang 3 songs.
Then there was another duo on piano and drums. Singing nothing at all. It was an interesting show they put up. The pianist looked a bit like Klas Ingesson (a Swedish soccer player) when he still had some hair. The drummer looked, or rather more behaved, like Animal the Muppet.
The music they played was Mozart on speed. No kidding. Check out Pia-no-Jac if you want to know more about them. I can just summarize their show as… CRAZY!!!
Then the main attraction was on… Gamarjobat. They both ended up taking a swim in the ocean so most of the time they were soaked wet on the scene. But funny, though not as funny as previous shows.
After the show we all went to Shinagawa to have an Indian dinner at Delhi Corner. Yummy!
