Japanese Breakfast, the solo project of Korean-American musician Michelle Zauner, is performing at a sold-out Royale on April 1. We are giving away two tickets, as well as a pair of Japanese Breakfast chopsticks

Zauner created Japanese Breakfast during a time of grief; she left her former band, Little Big League, and began writing solo music after moving to Eugene, OR to take care of her mother, who was dying of cancer. She first released Psychopomp in 2016, which was soon followed by her critically acclaimed album Soft Sounds from Another Planet in 2017. Recently, she announced that she’s writing a memoir called Crying in H-Mart as an extension of her New Yorker essay of the same name about losing her mother and coping through her Korean-American heritage.

Her music is commonly described as dream-pop and shoegaze, and consistently focuses on very intimate topics. Despite Japanese Breakfast’s dark origins, Zauner injects her shows with unparallelled energy and goofiness; don’t be surprised if she hops around onstage and belts out covers as if she were singing to herself in the shower. Read more in our review of her Sinclair show last summer.
