Being an expat rocker in Japan means you can get away with a lot more than back home—after all they won’t understand anything anyway right? Exhibit A: The Mootekkis’ shameless use of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” riff as the intro for “Public Displays of Affection” off their new album Heckling the Dawn. Exhibit B: lines like “I’m a broken man, let me love you till the morning” on “The Whiskey.” Yet when they’re delivered with as big a wink as The Mootekkis’, and with as wide a grin and knowing a leer as frontman Mike Hannah’s, it’s hard not to grab a drink and get into the spirit…which is precisely what folks will be doing at the release party for Heckling the Dawn. Hosted by local ink artist and DJ Adam3 (who also provides the cover art to the new album), the night “Lucid” will also feature performances by “heavy metal pro wrestler” Lady Beard. Best yet, it’s free.
