Name: Shigeharu Kobayashi
Setting: Shredquarters

What’s your relation to Shredquarters?

I am a big fan of this place. They have a lot of great shows here.

What is the biggest band you’ve seen come through here, and which was your favorite?

I wouldn’t think of any bands that play here as big. This place is just a small living room where Adam from Can’t Kids invites musicians and friends from Columbia and cities nearby to come and play and listen to each other’s music.

I have been here a few times before, and it was a lot of fun.

I really enjoy the musicians that he brings here. I appreciate that a lot of the bands here are just under the surface.

Yeah, I would imagine that most of them you can’t find on the Internet, radio or even on CDs.

And who knows if it ever will get recorded or promoted that way. But it is interesting to see how people will try to bend the world in their own little way through music.

It is almost like we are witnessing a little bit of history that will be our secret from the next generations.

Yes, I believe that most of the beauty in this world happens off and away from TV cameras and radio waves. And this is one of those places you can come to see that beauty.
