Damnably Presents: Otoboke Beaver ATTYUUMA (Blink of an eye) 2018 Tour with support from Say Sue Me.
Otoboke Beaver おとぼけビ～バ～ are a punk-rock-garage quartet from Kyoto, Japan named after a local ‘Love Hotel’. Formed in the summer of 2009, the band comprises Accorinrin (Lead Vocal & Guitar), Yoyoyoshie (Guitar &Vocals), Hiro-chan (Bass &Vocals) and Pop (Drums &Vocals). Fair warning; they are a raucous live act. Yoshie is often seen crowd-surfing whilst somehow flawlessly shredding her way through the crazed, deranged garage, punk-rock-pop at break-neck speed - and of course everyone sings in Japanese, often in Kyoto slang.
2017 was a breakthrough year for the band with premieres in Pitchfork, NPR , i-D and The Fader, astonishing SXSW /Fuji Rock debuts, a sold-out 100 Club gig and their ‘Love Is Short’ 7” sat in the UK charts for 4 weeks. 2018 promises to just as exciting!
Support comes from Say Sue Me are a surf-inspired indie rock quartet from Busan, South Korea. Friends since the 5th grade Jae Young (Bass) and Kim Byungkyu (guitar) along with drummer Kang Semin played together until the winter of 2012, before meetng Sumi in a Nampo-dong tea shop. They liked Sumi's speaking voice so much that they immediately offered her a spot as the vocalist in a new band that would become Say Sue Me. Sumi Choi turned out to be a natural at songwriting.
