Otaku Acoustic - The Real Folk Blues - Live @ Anime Matsuri 2013

Here's a rather "candid" video of us by our friend Jose Aguilar. 
  • Song Title: The Real Folk Blues
  • Original Artist(s): Yoko Kanno & The Seatbelts
  • Anime Show: Cowboy Bebop (ending theme) 
  • Video Recorded by: Jose Aguilar
  • Event / Location:  Anime Matsuri 2013 (Houston, TX)



In this video: We were surrounded by folks who recognized the song right away. You can hear them singing along. It was awesome! At the end of the video, we met yet another new friend: Charles Thomas (saxophone, The C.I.T.Y.) The whole ad lib at the end, between our music and his saxophone was spontaneous, yet amazing!

This video, though it is a bit incomplete, is still very precious to us! This is the cover that we play, which tests our volume to the limits, and the patience of hotel security and convention staff. lol

I didn't really find this picture until two years later. This picture, along with the videos we posted regarding Anime Matsuri 2013, took place at this skybridge.
