WACK, a music agency from Japan responsible for shaking up the Japanese music industry, has announced its first ever show overseas, entitled “WACK in the UK”. It will take place at The Underworld in London on Thursday 16 November 2023 with three of its acts.
The agency rose to notoriety with BiS, dubbed “the most hated girl group in Japan” by VICE, who disbanded in 2014 (at a show with unlimited McDonald’s buffet), not before causing all kinds of havoc in the media with its extreme music videos and outrageous magazine photoshoots. Since then, WACK continues to produce nonconventional stars who dominate pop and rock spaces, including BiSH (Brand-new idol SHIT) who called themselves in an interview with Billboard a “punk band with no instruments” and who have a song written by Taka (ONE OK ROCK), MEG (MEGMETAL) and KENTA (WANIMA), their first to be produced by third parties.
AiNA THE END, one of BiSH’s most popular members, will be appearing at “WACK in the UK” as part of a very special unit for this show, called AiNATOAOI featuring dancer AOI YAMADA, who closed the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. They’ll be joined by groups ASP and ExWHYZ for this very special overseas show.
This is a 14+ event. 14 and 15 year old’s MUST be accompanied by an adult.
