Rough Trade NYC Moving To Rockefeller CenterEarlier this year, Rough Trade NYC closed its Brooklyn location, which opened in 2013 and had housed a concert venue and massive record store in a 10,000-square-foot former warehouse space in Williamsburg. At the time, Rough Trade — an offshoot of the chain of London stores — said that it would be opening a new location in New York this summer.
Rush- Live in Tokyo, 11/21/1984 (Audio/Video merge)Here's another show from the Grace Under Pressure Tour! This is their concert at the Budokan in Tokyo, one of their only concerts in Japan, and the third-to-last show on the tour (The tour closed out 4 days later in Honolulu). This is very special because it is captured on video! The original video (Credit to RollTheFemurs for the original upload) was incomplete, missing "The Enemy Within", "Witch Hunt", "New World Man", "Red Barchetta", and "2112", as well as most of "The Spirit Of Radio", Neil's Drum solo, and "Tom Sawyer". Fortunately I managed to get my hands on an audio-only bootleg, which is complete! The sound quality is great, though the video quality is pretty poor and blurry. (Also some audio synch problems in "The Weapon" and "Red Lenses") Despite that, it's still a worthwhile watch. It gives a good visual picture of the band's performances at the time, and as usual for the time the performances are very solid, musically and vocally, though not much real surprises (Geddy hits some of the E5s in "Tom Sawyer", and nails a G5 (!) during "Red Lenses"). ENJOY!
