More Than Music hosts events every first Thursday of the month at Whiz Cafe. To kick off 2023, a special event on January 14 showcases both poetry readings and music performances. Tokyo Poetry Journal’s editors Jeffrey Johnson, Taylor Mignon and Barbara Summerhawk will open the night, followed by guest poets from Tokyo and abroad. Solo artists Robert Taira Wilson and Kev Gray and The Gravy Train will take to the stage afterward.

Enjoy an evening of great tunes, friendly faces and delicious food in a relaxed atmosphere.
