88rising & CRUNCHYROLL-HIME DANCE PARTY WITH DJ JUN INAGAWA WITH ATARASHII GAKKO:
Friday, July 22 at 7pm-9:30pm | The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park
“A high-impact performance with anime inspired elements and dance crew! 88Rising’s powerhouse J-Pop girl group ATARASHII GAKKO! represent a new generation of Japanese youth, one embracing personal expression and pushing against traditional boundaries a little at a time.
The outlandish quartet — composed of kawaii-but-fierce Mizyu, wildcard Suzuka, graceful Kanon and funky Rin — break down genre walls to create music mixing elements of pop, jazz, hip-hop, rock and more.
DJ Jun Inagawa opens the Crunchyroll-Hime Dance Party for anime fans to get their groove on!”
About ATARASHII GAKKO! – Bio
“ATARASHII GAKKO! (literally meaning “new school” in Japanese) are a group of four young women who are redefining what it means to be a girl group.
They wear sailor-fuku (sailor suits) uniforms in a style that were worn by Japanese students back in the 70s and 80s with long skirts and pulled-up socks, and staunchly refuse to be objectified.
Their aggressive and expressive dance moves, which they choreograph themselves, are a hybrid of the energy of Japanese butoh dance, heavy metal headbanging, and hip-hop street dancing.
Musically, AG! brings together elements of modern J-Pop, Showa-era kayokyoku, rap, punk, dance music, but it would be pointless to try to categorize them in any genre.”
You can catch up with Dragon Ball Super right now on Crunchyroll’s streaming service ahead of the film’s release in in North American theaters on August 19, 2022. See the lead up to Piccolo and Gohan’s new journey.
San Diego Comic-Con will take place at San Diego Convention Center from July 21-24, 2022.
