That dream was to have a local great jam spot in the middle
of Little Tokyo - downtown Los Angeles, where everyone can come together to eat,
drink, and see bands perform.
It was a dream to open the doors to all
types of artists, especially his fellow Japanese rockers to showcase their talents
without feeling like they are outsiders.
A dream to have a place where
people can just be themselves...

"Hakanai," but it came true! And now he is leaving with

"In preparation for their first out-of-state appearance, Lolita Dark took the
time to answer a few questions regarding their new approach to the Japanese rock
scene in the US. Not your average band, the members are no strangers to a scene
that has seen better days. Determined to make the most of it, Ray, Rain, and Joey,
along with May and Patrick, hope to connect with their audience on a deeper level,
and maybe even teach their audience a little something about staying true to yourself." JDH
