While there is a 13-hour time difference from the Land of the Sun, finding live Japanese music in North Carolina is not impossible. Here is one such concert coming up this week.
The Ramones-influenced band that Kurt Cobain loved plays punk in NC. Going on almost 35 years since their inception, the all-girl band released the album Overdrive just this year. Chapel Hill-based punk veterans Pipe open. Doors at 8, show at 9. Tickets are $12-14.
