The Legendary Velfarre Closing?
For those of you that don’t know what or where Velfarre is, go here (Japanese site):
I was never a big fan of going out to Roppongi, but this place is ridiculously awesome. And its closing after 12 years of being open. 12 years of bringing the forces of trance to Tokyo. It’s a shame and a travesty. I don’t understand why its closing, but I suspect it has to do with explosive popularity of hip-hop and the growth in Tokyo in general. Space is at a premium over there. Their resident DJs have released some great tracks over the years, and I’m sad to see them go.
If you can make it to their Final Dance on New Years Eve, go. It should be a night to remember. I wish I could, but I’m all the way over here in NY!
