button ザ・50回転ズ @ SXSW/JAPAN NITE US TOUR 2007

- イントロ -

The 50kaitenz
 Smashing Magお馴染み「ザ50回転ズ」。世間では浪速が生んだガレージ・ロックン・ロール・バンドと呼ばれ、演歌あり、歌謡あり、お笑いありの多彩な面も見せるラモーンズを愛する3匹馬鹿。

 そんな彼らは現在80本近いライブツアー「50回転ズのやりたい放題珍道中!!2007」を展開中。それに組み込まれた全米横断ツアーが3月10日ボストンを皮切りにスタートした。SXSW Music Festival2007を含め、ニューヨーク、フィラデルフィア、シカゴ、テキサス、ロサンゼルス、サンフランシスコ、そしてシアトルの8都市9公演を11日間、全力疾走で駆け抜けた。

 そしてフリーランス写真家で、Smashing Magスタッフでもあるわたくし、ryotaが、オフィシャル・フォトグラファーとしてこのツアーに参加。ステージ・ショットはもちろん、ツアー日常のひとコマまでファインダーに収めた。その数4000カット。今回アップしたレポートは初日のボストン公演で、これから時間軸に沿って公開していく予定。
