Love Psychedelico, who have been rocking out Tokyo since 1997, recently released their US debut, This Is Love Psychedelico, on HackTone Records. This week they will be bringing the thunder to the Troubadour will their full band, then bringing it on down low for an acoustic set at The Apple Store in Santa Monica.

Here is a photo essay from August, when Love Psychedelico played the Royal/T, Culver City's new "maid cafe". The acoustic set was a little more "70s singer/songwriter" than their recorded stuff, but the crowd ate it up. The singer, Kumi, kept making cute little remarks while Naoki, the male guitar player giggled adorably at her jokes. He only spoke once, to lean into the microphone and intone carefully, "I am Japanese." The crowd went wild.
