Dzian! - "Moon Over Ruined Castle" 荒城の月 from Wendy Hsu on Vimeo.

Wendy Hsu who also blogs down at has apparently started a band - and - they're pretty damn cool (I know I want to book them, although for what I'm not quite sure).

Dzian! (贊!, "super-cool!" in Taiwanese) [please say our name with your thumbs up] is Charlottesville’s new, one and only NAKASHI* band. We play a fine selection of your favorite (and obscure) 1960s surf and garage rock songs from Taiwan, Japan, Indonesia, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Italy, the US, and many more. Our repertoire is expanding by the week. We are available for fundraiser events, weddings, holiday parties, birthdays, graduations, frat parties, TV commercials, NASA launching ceremonies, etc. Email us at[at] for more information.

*Nakashi is a style of Taiwanese burlesque circa 1960s-1980s employed for social functions. Over time it morphed into a semi-participatory karaoke format.
