Chika queens Oyasumi Hologram just wrapped up the first leg of their first North American tour (crowdfunded, no less!) after a handful of shows in and around San Francisco, with chiptuner TORIENA in tow and various local friends on hand to support. It was, as you might expect, quite the scene, and not without the kinds of hiccups that come with international travel and performing, but all’s well that ends well, and the trend in this case is hurtling toward a big ol’ finale.
The scene in the Bay:

Acoustic version of Neuromancer. By far my favorite @oysm_hologram song. This weekend was a lot of fun and I'm glad I was able to come up for it. Thanks to all who made the tour possible! #oysmus pic.twitter.com/S2SD9pBfAQ

I’m sympathetic to the customs agents involved; Oyasumi Hologram are some kind of emotional manipulation weapon come to life, and you can’t be too careful
For her part, TORIENA did what TORIENA do, which is be the world’s most helpful chiptune artist:
