Yuka Honda and Miho Hatori covered a few Cibo Matto songs live at Le Poisson Rouge for Yuka Honda's 50th birthday. They performed a Antonio Carlos Jobim cover of "Águas de Março" then they played "Le Pain Perdu," "Sugar Water" and "Birthday Cake." At the end of the set they brought out some birthday cakes for Yuka. She blew out the candles and they left the stage. Check out the video of "Birthday Cake" below:
Wilco's lead guitarist Nels Cline opened the show with some of his bizarre cosmic guitar noisemaking. He is married to Cibo Matto keyboardist Yuka Honda.
The headliners were called Floored By Four which consisted of Nels Cline, legendary bassist Mike Watt(The Minutemen, fIREHOSE, and has played with The Stooges, Porno for Pyros and Ciccone Youth) and Cibo Matto keyboardist Yuka Honda. Mike Watt asked the audience to say "Otanjou-bi Omedetou" which means "Happy Birthday" in Japanese. Then the band played some tunes led by the bizarre cosmic guitarist Nels Cline.
