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!
Two previews of videos for Crowd Deterrent and Race Riot 59 I have been working on lately at Downpour Creative.
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.
Not my usual breakfast, but not too shabby.
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.
Ham and cheese on a stick.
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).
Japanese pastries beat out American pastries as well.

I REALLY wanted this…
Jude Law was very angry I took this…

Dinner. Grill your own food.

More photos from my trip to Japan with Crowd Deterrent… we had a long drive to the show so we’ll start there.

Some more photos from my trip to Japan with Crowd Deterrent. Let’s begin.
The guys. I can’t thank them enough for driving us around, helping us order food and figure out everything.
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.
I don’t know for sure but I don’t think this guy is a real member…
Super racist Mickey Mouse shirt. “Baby, Yo, Baby, Yo, Good To Go”
I really wanted this thing.
You go girl.

Some shots I took while driving through the mountains of Japan. Also, on an unrelated note, I’ve been listening a lot to Bahlmorea, just finished the Hunger Games (book 1), and working on all things Downpour. More updates soon.
We continue our journey through photos…
Breakfast. Something on a stick…
Merch table outside. Sold out of All Teeth while in Japan!
Hotel rooms are very different in Japan than in America. They can condense!

Dinner hang outs.
Pictures from Day 1 of my trip to Japan with Crowd Deterrent. We drove six hours to Chicago, flew 5 hours to Los Angeles, flew 12 hours to Tokyo.
Vending machines are a hit.
We crashed at MerchDig Headquarters.

I just edited a music video for Japanese hardcore band Creepout. I didn’t film this video but took all the footage from their North American tour and put it into a little montage. Check it out.
