Fujiya & Miyagi @ Mercury Lounge – January 21, 2012
Photos & Video: Chris

Since the year 2000, Fujiya & Miyagi have been gaining more and more notoriety as one of Brighton, England’s finest electronic-based acts, releasing four full length albums and garnering much critical acclaim for their unique blend of krautrock and indie-influenced dance music. Though their most recent album Ventriloquizzing came out a year ago, the band made a return to the US last week to play a string of dates, hitting Glasslands in Brooklyn on Thursday and then a sold-out Mercury Lounge on Saturday.

The band plays Toronto tonight, and will continue to tour the States through the remainder of January (all tour dates below). We made it into the Mercury Lounge show and had a chance to witness the band in all its glory, as they riled up a crowd of 250 patrons at the stroke of midnight. Take a look at some photos we shot during their set in the slideshow below, as well as a short video we filmed from the front of the stage…
