Overseas from the California coast (San Francisco) all the way to Tokyo, Japan. Ten days on the road, and I’m still buzzing with the excitement of it all.
Truth be told, I’m still putting away clean laundry and getting settled back into my normal routine. After such an epic adventure, it takes a minute to come back down to earth.
Let me attempt a brief recap… if you’re more inclined to just watch the video, scroll to the end of this blog.
I have several friends in the area, and some who even drove up from San Diego for the show that night, so it was extra special for me.
Here are a few action shots from the night.
I had a couple days in the city before my flight to Tokyo, so we visited with friends, checked out the city, went to Amoeba Music, did yoga at the well known Urban Flow Yoga studio, ate at some ridiculously awesome vegetarian/vegan restaurants like Herbivore, Golden Era, Greens, The Plant and one not so vegan restaurant, The Trident, where our talented friend James Montejano is the Executive chef. He spoiled us with a 6 course vegan chef’s tasting! I also experienced sitting at the table that was once reserved for Janis Joplin.
San Francisco was awesome!
Upon landing in Tokyo I was greeted with this sign:
By the infamous shenanigan instigator Mark Carter of g-spot presents. We were fast friends…
Our first night in Tokyo (Friday night) we went to dinner at Gonpachi, the restuarant where they filmed that epic fight scene in Kill Bill. It was fun, the company was amazing, and the food was delicious!
Then I got my hair done at Toni & Guy, there were three people working on my hair at once! Check it!
Sound Museum Vision had one of the best sound systems I’ve sang through. I was really impressed with the kindness & professionalism of the people, and the venue itself was amazing. Big thanks to Hed Kandi for putting on the event, the club owner, my partner in music StoneBridge, Mark Carter of g-spot presents for the footage & the fun, and JAXXDAFISHWORKS for making it all happen.
We also got in a bit of site seeing the day before we left, here’s a picture of me and Stoney at the top of the Tokyo Tower. What a view!

I LOVE Japan! I’m looking forward to more gigs there in the future!
