Otoboke Beaver finally made their Southern California debut and Jankysmooth was present to see this Japanese Power-punk group redefine everything it means to be heavy, raw, and underground. At first what might’ve been considered a gimmick, punk rock through a J-pop lens, turned into an avant-garde rock and roll acid-trip, pushing the boundaries of what is possible in rock and roll. Otoboke Beaver began their tour de force through So-Cal at San Diego’s Casbah and we got the pictures to make them live forever on Jankysmooth. There is more to come as we had peeps at their Los Angeles shows as well. If you didn’t get the chance to see them this time around, don’t fret. They just extended their tour with more shows in Southern California to attend. You can buy tickets to those upcoming shows, including one at San Diego’s Music Box and another at Pappy and Harriet’s here.
