Japanese Breakfast Comes Home to Philly

Philly favorite Japanese Breakfast concluded a 5 week tour with (Sandy) Alex G and Cende at Union Transfer, and it was certainly a show to remember.

Michelle Zauner has been writing and preforming as Japanese Breakfast since 2013 and her sophomore album, Soft Sounds From Another Planet is due out this Friday (although if you were at the sold out show,  they had early copies of the record for sale at their merch table.)

The full band played songs from the new record and Psychopomp, Japanese Breakfast’s debut record, but no matter which record the songs came from, the crowd ate up every minute of it. Zauner is an incredibly energetic front-person, dancing around the stage, and even jumped into the crowd during the last song of the set “Machinist,” which she described as “being in love with a robot.” Before she became part of the crowd, she held hands with a crowd member in the front row, who was almost in tears after the encounter. Like a vision, she disappeared into the crowd and was only seen again when she joined Alex G on stage for a rendition of Brite Boy, a song off his Beach Music record.
