Promising plenty of chaos, last year’s social media hit club event マグロハウス (maguro house) returns for another serving of tuna and beats in 2016.
The club scene has always been a medium through which one can be rid of the inhibitions that shackle us during daylight hours. Nightclubs themselves, together with promoters, are always on the lookout for ways to further facilitate this loss; foam nights, bikini nights, vodka nights, women get in free nights, … there’s an extensive list.
We’re not quite sure where the slicing and dicing of tuna fits into this, or how one would ever naturally think to combine house music with tuna, but last year Tokyo club scene staple ‘clubasia’ together with party/event organizer Afro&Co. combined the two, and by all accounts, it looked like people had a ball.
This year it’s the turn of nightclub/party space FLAME TOKYO in Shibuya to serve up the house and fish. They’ve teamed up with Afro&Co. (and some unsuspecting tuna) to celebrate their 3rd Anniversary with the マグロハウス night.
The concept is simple (and, it has to be said, very unique); clubbers get to witness the slicing and dicing of tuna to a soundtrack of the best house music. Then, of course, they get to eat said tuna. The organizers have prepared some 40 kg of tuna for some 200 servings. Tamajiman (多満自慢) sake from Ishikawa Brewery with be on hand to wash down the tuna sashimi the way it should be washed down, and there will be energy drinks in the form of Brazilian natural energy drink ORGANIQ to keep punters going throughout the night.
