On February 14th 2011, numerous lonely hearts and some well-matched pairs drifted through an increasingly thick dusting of virgin snow as nighttime fell in Tokyo. Well as you know the nighttime is the right time especially for a party with a bunch of garage girl bands and a newly formed trio named the Nervous Hearts playing edgy powerpop of the '78 variety. The Nervous Hearts were the opening act to Mystery Girls Part 2. featuring all-girl bands The Harpy's, The Pappys and Kannana Speedcats.
After the Nervous Hearts (featuring Taka6 from the Kizu and Toyozo & Ozawa of the fabulous Fadeaways!) got the crowed warmed up, The Harpy's generated a certain electricity as usual... yet drummer Tomo tossed homemade cookies out to everyone, further begging the question, is it a boy or is it a girl????
Bringing the cutesy charm that should be present on Valentine's Day were The Pappys! Yet don't let their coquettish 60's outfits fool you... these girls rip it to shreds on stage!
Last but not least, the leather-clad ladies in Kannana Speedcats brought the Jett love that everyone was in dire need of! They melted the snow off our boots and the jade from our hearts!
Also a very special thanks to DJ Sachi B for her wicked setsof psychobilly & punk rock tunes and also for taking these lovely photographs. Also a big hand to Mr. Death for his exceptional selection and getting the crowd warmed up for Kannana Speedcats with good hard rockin' tunes.

After this sugar rush of a Valentine's day party everyone strolled off through a snowy Valentine's night just a little happier if not less lonely.
