The 7th edition of Ray Ochiai’s Harajuku street culture party “Heavy Pop” was held in Tokyo last week. The party featured musicians, artists, and performers including Raveman, Broken Doll, Bazookistan, Junnyan, Bloodolly, M&T from OVER ZERO, Die Schwarze Frau, rxsxhxc and Katie. Indie fashion brands on hand included Party Baby (Kumamiki), MEtA (Mimeko), Namekujisalt and Whoopingcough, Dollis and Pastel Parade.
In addition to the “official” guests, there were lots of familiar faces from the Harajuku street fashion scene in attendance enjoying the music and atmosphere. Kaila and Daishi from Tokyo Fashion both attended Heavy Pop #7, and they brought back pictures and video for those of you that didn’t make it in person. Check out Heavy Pop and hope to see you there in person soon!
