[press release] Thee Michelle Gun Elephant Tribute

THEE TRIBUTE – Thee Michelle Gun Elephant -

Thee Michelle Gun Elephant was, and still is, one of Japan’s most respected and influential rock bands. In 2003, at the height of their popularity, they announced their breakup and final tour, playing to audiences of over 40,000 at a single venue. In 2009, guitarist Futoshi Abe died suddenly and a memorial campaign soon followed, including the release of “THEE MOVIE,” a documentary film of their final concert.

THEE TRIBUTE is the first American tribute event for Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, and will allow fans in the U.S. a chance to celebrate the legacy of the band. The event will include a mini-exhibition of the band, the
un-official premiere screening of “THEE MOVIE”, tunes by DJ King Gilbert, as well as a tribute performance by Geisha Lightning.
