Jim O’Rourke
live @ Tokyo’s Roppongi SuperDeluxe

Since moving to Japan in 2006 (wah!!!), Jim O’Rourke has performed many times at Tokyo’s Roppongi SuperDeluxe venue, playing alongside Carlos Giffoni, Fire!, and Lasse Marhaug/Paal Nilssen-Love, among others. But he also performs solo there. In fact, the first track on his recently released Old News 5 was recorded at SuperDeluxe. So, now that I’ve gained your trust, you should check out the video above, an excerpt from a recent solo performance. Special thanks to The Wire, which has an O’Rourke primer in issue #330, for sharing the video.
