We are interested in catching some live music – preferably punk or rock. Any suggestions of tourist-friendly bars and clubs?Thanks!
Try Anti-Knock in Shinjuku. They usually have punk shows every week and are known to feature Western bands. I also keep this list of punk/hardcore venues handy:http://www1.odn.ne.jp/shinjuku-dom/index.html/menu.html http://www.wall-moonstep.com/wall/top.html http://www.den-atsu.com/
These are probably the most well-known punk venues in Tokyo, but I think the anti-knock is the best bet for more popular bands. I saw Floorpunch and Strife there and was surprised to see all the Japanese kids representing straight edge in Japan.
Penguin Club in Koenji is always good. Lounge NEO and O-Nest in Shibuya too!
