‘M.L.B. Tribute Band Fest’ at Bauhaus Roppongi | Golden Week – 29.04 to 05.05.2021

The free live stream for the world during the golden week has ended successfully thanks to 7 performances in total for 5 days.
We really appreciate the viewing and kindness of many people.

During the state of emergency, this measure was an attempt to make the most of what artists, venues, media, and promoters could do with each other, and to keep the soul of the entertainment scene, albeit a little.
We wouldn’t be so happy if it helped to revitalize the scene even a little and everyone enjoyed it.
Thank you for your continued support.

Save the Music project

Since early 2020, live music is suffering all over the world. Music venues had to close their doors, bands have been unable to perform in front of an audience, and couldn’t even meet for rehearsal.

Bauhaus has also been hit by this difficult situation. In spring 2020, we had to close for several months. We could reopen temporarily in October, but had to close again early 2021 when a new period of state of emergency was decided by the government to limit the spread of COVID-19 cases.

Bauhaus has been hit, and needs your support. But Bauhaus also wants to help the community of live rock musicians in Tokyo. For this reasons, we started to launch in March 2021 a series of new services for rock musicians.
