Tokyo Goth & Darkwave

The primordial ooze flowed, coalesced, and October 20th, 2001 brought forth the night that started it all - Tokyo Goth & Darkwave. This seminal event broke through the restraints plaguing the Tokyo goth scene by combining bands, DJs, performances, art, and vending into an all night event. Tokyo would never be the same.

Before Tokyo Dark Castle

June 2001 a strange gothish American went to an Auto-Mod show in Tokyo. A friendship began. In the following October a whole new scene was born. These are photos from that June encounter.
