Dommune TV to stream PSF special

Ahead of the memorial concert in Tokyo, Japan's online TV channel streams talks and performances to mark the passing of PSF Records founder Hideo Ikeezumi

On Saturday 24 June, Japan's TV streaming website Dommune will host a night dedicated to the PSF Records founder Hideo Ikeezumi, who died earlier this year.

The broadcast will take place the night before a major memorial concert at Tokyo’s SuperDeluxe, which has been organised by The Silence’s Masaki Batoh, formerly of Ghost, with all proceeds going to Ikeezumi's family.

The broadcast will run from 7pm–midnight JST (11am–4pm in the UK) and feature a rebroadcast of the 2014 film PSF Records Presents Underground Reality, which featured Ikeezumi talking about the history of the label; a talk looking at the history and significance of PSF with guests Kazuo Imai (Marginal Consort), writer Takeo Udagawa, Munehiro Narita (High Rise, Green Flames), The Wire’s Alan Cummings, Masaki Batoh, Naohiro Ukawa (Dommune); and performances from Imai, Narita and Batoh.

You can stream it live via Dommune.
