CHAI’s mission is to make you rethink the concept of “kawaii” (meaning “cute” in their native Japanese). The group boasts a whole host of unique pop-forward influences – they’ve listed Gorillaz and CSS, for example – blended with riot grrrl reminiscent guitars and empowering lyrics. This band is for fans of Hinds, Cherry Glazerrand girl power. Don’t miss some of the best music to come out of Japan recently when CHAI land stateside this month. Another reason not to miss this show: former On Tap cover star and DC native Den-Mate opens.
