Street performers in Shinjuku

Saturday night near Shinjuku station in front of the Alta Building saw this bunch playing live. Everything had been carefully thought through it seems. The band, Jack Rose, named after Di Caprio's character in Titanic was going to appeal to the female population (note the entire front row is female), and the half glam rock half cosplay image would appeal to others. Surely they had a recipe for success? Well, it seems that they forget to think about one important thing ~ the actual music. It's difficult to put into words, but it was almost glam rock meets Japanese para-para with a pub singer. Quite possibly the worst band I've ever seen.
