Sneaking Backstage
On PINE*am's American Tour

Imagine if you will discovering a new favorite band who brings you so much joy you can't resist putting their album on a near endless loop. And then imagine that band coming from halfway around the world to play a show for you and your friends at your house.

That's what happened for us here at the Isotope when Japanese girl group sensations PINE*am brought their guitar-laden retro-click-pop gloriousness to San Francisco and played for a packed-to-the-rafters Isotope crowd in September. Pearched eight feet off the floor on our mezzanine stage Tsugumi (bass), Taeca (keyboards), and Chizuko (guitar) rocked and charmed the cheering masses with hours of pure, undiluted bliss and brought more than one tear to the Isotope staff's eyes.

You can check out our pictures from the event, or now you can see PINE*am's own pictures from their North American tour, including photos from Philadelphia, Atlanta, New York, Boston, LA, and even a few handfulls of backstage pictures from the Isotope...
