Promotional organiser Japan Underground returns to London this month to bring its eclectic mix of live music and Japanese culture to the capital's nightlife.

Japan Underground at The Kingpin Suite at Bloomsbury Lanes, London on 28th May will be headlined by British J-Pop star Bentley Jones, the first British artist to be signed to a major Japanese record label (EMI). Japanese video game violinist Masa Futagami will also be there with his live renditions of video gaming themes from Mario, Zelda and Final Fantasy games. His Street Fighter medley will also be performed live.

The promotion will also be teaming up with retro gaming night Nintendisco to provide competitive gaming for the evening, so needless to say; if you want some multiplayer action to go with your live music, be sure to take your handhelds with you. David Lightfoot, co-director of Nintendisco says:

We are chuffed to be working with Japan Underground, we have been massive fans of Japanese culture; anime, music and of course video games for as long as we can remember. Japan Underground brings all of these elements together in one great club night environment, so it’s the perfect place for Nintendisco to be.

The gaming zone will provide attendees the opportunities to play against each other in SEGA Saturn tournaments, as well as pinball, retro arcade machines and five bowling lanes.
