"Where's Fugazi when we need Fugazi?"
That's exactly the kind of idealistic cri de coeur you'd expect to hear from one half of JAPANDROIDS. We've been championing Vancouver's finest duo forevs, but it wasn't until their last swing through town at the Paradise that we got drummer David Prowse to come hang out at the WFNX.
Let's just say that Sunday was Japandroids Day here at PHXHQ, kicking off with Dave's visit to the WFNX studios for a station-takeover DJ set at noon, and ending with their fucking awesome sold-out show at the Paradise, which -- as you can see below -- everyone in Boston was Instagramming the shit out of as it happened.
