ASAKUSA JINTA Playing live at the Lomography Gallery Store London!
1pm 16th of October
Come along, shoot, party and you might win a Diana Mini and F+ flash!

This one isn’t to be missed! If you’re thinking about missing this gig you’re thinking wrong my friend… Why?

ASAKUSA JINTA are a Japanese Six-Piece band who’ve been causing a storm in Tokyo for some years. They are passing through London and will be blessing the Lomography Gallery Store with an improvised gig outside the shop at 1pm on Friday the 16th of October.
Another reason? It’s totally free!

The competition couldn’t be simpler: come to the store and shoot the gig! The best shot wins a Diana Mini and Diana F+ flash (everyone knows the two go together like basil and mozzarella {and tomatoes})
Everyone who shoots the gig also receives 15% off film and processing on the day!

Where? 3 Newburgh Street, London W1F 7RE

Did I hear “oh but I’m at work Friday afternoon!” – Everyone gets a lunch break and everyone can get to our store in minutes so no excuses!

More about Asakusa Jinta!

Asakusa Jinta take their name and inspiration from the Tokyo historic district where jintas (roving Japanese street bands) once filled the streets. The band’s mixture of punk, ska, swing, and march music (performed by the six-piece outfit including standup bass, horns, and rhythm section) began driving audiences wild in 1999. Asakusa Jinta’s dynamic display earned a reputation throughout their hometown of Tokyo for vibrant (bordering on frantic) live performances, featuring outlandish swing-era-gone-mad costumes and typically standing-room-only halls. With a horn section prone to marching through the packed audiences and a frontman/bass player whose vocals conjure images of a carnival barker, Asakusa Jinta bring the spirit of chindon’ya (traditional Japanese street performance) to life.
