Cibo Matto reunite with Sean Lennon at the Brooklyn Bowl

I guess I shouldn’t have, being as that it’d been awhile since Cibo Matto had performed, but I was genuinely surprised to see the entire floor swell when they appeared on stage. At first it seemed strange. Standing in a bowling alley where people were actually bowling.
