Japanese rock band Pinky Doodle Poodle will perform at San Francisco’s J-Pop Summit on July 20 at the Pagoda Stage in Japantown.
Pinky Doodle Poodle is a high energy, female fronted rock band from Tokyo, Japan formed in 2008. PDP features lead vocalist/bassist/guitarist Yuria, a successful Japanese anime singer often heard in popular video games in Japan as well as on solo records and with her band Honey Bee (2004-2007).
Rounding out the duo on guitar is George, a long haired shredder/composer who brings PDP a musical sound reminiscent of a marriage of the MC5 and Bad Brains swirling under Yuria’s playful Japanese/English lyrics and melodies.
The band has released a handful of EPs in Japan and Europe and have just completed their first full length LP in the US with producer / Goo Goo Dolls member Robby Takac at his GCR Audio Studios in Western New York. Their latest 10 song self-titled album Pinky Doodle Poodle was released worldwide in the Spring of 2014 on Good Charamel Records.
