From JR Kameido station (Sobu Line):
Leave by the north (large) ticket gate and go out of the small exit to your left by Newdays. Turn left.
Keep going and you’ll see a large intersection. Go straight on over the footbridge and keep going down the road. Goatbabe is on the right after about five minutes, just before a bridge, and after Family Mart and Book Off.
It’s in the basement of the same building as a curry restaurant called Cresson.
From Nishiojima station (Toei Shinjuku Line)
Go out of the A2 exit and walk north on the left side of the road. After about five minutes you’ll pass under a highway. About a minute after that you’ll see Cresson curry restaurant on your left. Goatbabe is in the basement.

Licinius said, to the men by his side,
“Don’t look at the banner’s bright eyes!
With the power of christ, he’s abandoned the gods, and plans to throw them aside.”
Constantine rode, his banner held strong, as javelins ripped his men apart.
The swinging of swords and the snapping of spears, with a hundred thousand men on a side.
With the empire healed, one man and one Rome, one god for the entire world.
Licinius fled with his wife and his child, in Thessaloniki they retired.
But Constantine’s men they killed father and son leaving Constantia all alone. And later he killed his own wife and child, is this a true apostle of god?
Jupiter, Mars, and Apollo must wait.
Abikyokan are celebrating their 10 year anniversary and possibly the last show with Jake before he moves back to the US. Also playing is Servals with Craig from Abikyokan on bass, and DJs Tatsumi (Goatherd) and Grant from Abikyokan. Don’t miss it!
