Japan Documentary – Crowd Deterrent

I was asked to document Crowd Deterrent on their recent tour to Japan. I threw together a 30 minute documentary you can check out below. A huge thank you to all the Japan dudes for helping us all out for a great week!

Japan – Overall

Here are some pictures from Japan taken with my phone over the whole trip. Some of them might have been posted on my Old Saw Tumblr thing but that’s okay.

Octopus Balls. Bits of octopus put into a dough ball covered with onions and some amazing sauce. One of my favorite meals on the trip.

Chocolate banana pizza and squid ink pizza. Both delicious.

As far as meals were concerned, this was it for me. The best. I think it costed six dollars and was so filling and tasty. Noodle bowl with dumplings and side salad and Japanese Hi-C (yes, it tastes better than American Hi-C, I don’t care if someone told me it was the same, for some reason it just tasted better).

Japan - 2012
Japanese pastries beat out American pastries as well.

Dustin warming up before the show. Sound checks are like… 7 hours before the show. Way different from the normal American shows. You know, where the bands all show up a half hour late.
