吉本英樹's Hideking Electric Band @ Apple Ginza

My colleague at the Tokyo University A.I. Lab, 吉本英樹, plays trumpet and is programmer and composer for Hideking Electric Band. They are performing at Apple Ginza this Sunday night:
hideking electric band LIVE at APPLE STORE
w/ DJs: DJ Ken, motohashi
Apple Store Ginza @17:00 Free!!
2007年、吉本英樹の呼びかけで結成. House, Jazz, R&Bを融合したelectric club musicを. ライブパフォーマンスを通して発信する.

Afterwards I wandered in the torrential rain and wind symptomatic of the typhoon hitting Tokyo until I encountered a delicious (though expensive) Indian restaurant. The architecture in Ginza is fascinating, including Mikimoto Ginza 2 pictured: the latest addition to Tokyo's recent string of successful partnering of renowned architects and luxury brands, designed by Toyo Ito (Tod's Omotesando). The pinkish mauve building is studded with irregularly shaped (and placed) windows.
