The Gaijin Underground Music Network has two specific goals:

Our first goal is to bringing you up-to-date news about underground Japanese artists in the form of live show dates, album releases, and reviews. We are open to suggestions and want to hear from you.

Our second goal is to spread the word about local acts. In the Japanese live music industry, bands that aren’t well known have to pay the live house in order to play there and often have to use house equipment. If not enough people come to the show, the band loses money so in order to support the underground musicians of Japan, we want to encourage people to get out and go to these live shows.
