I really regretted missing out on Japandroids the last time they came through town (Billiken Club, w/Surfer Blood!), so their opening set for The Walkmen at Off Broadway was a priority for me on the concert calendar. Having checked out video/reviews/pictures of earlier shows, I thought I was prepared for the Japandroids experience, but that changed a little when I walked into the venue and saw the wall of amps dominating the backside of the stage. A nice heads up for the rock assault that would soon take place at the hands of the Vancouver duo.
More pictures and notes after the break:
