There were some acts I wanted to see in October, but I couldn't rally anyone else to pay $50 to see an unfamiliar act. When I returned from my month in Kyushu, I checked the schedule again and noticed an announcement that "Morgan's Organ will play their 100th and last show in March 2013". Upon further research, I found that on the third Thursday of every month, for the last 96 months, Morgan Fisher has performed his experimental and improvisational solo pieces on a variety of his vintage keyboards at Super-Deluxe. He was the Jon Brion of Super-Deluxe and I wanted to be a part of one of his final performances. Plus it was free!

But Super-Deluxe is a fantastic place! Good space, good people, pretty decent guacamole! And if $6 ginger ales are your thing, do I have a place for you! If I had more time to spend in Tokyo I would definitely try to become a regular there as it attracts a nice mix of young and hip expats as well as Japanese trendsetters. And also a few children who seemed to be enjoying the set even less than I was, but luckily had their Nintendo DSes with them. I was quite envious.
