November 4th: a van carrying Japan's DMBQ was involved in a three-vehicle accident near the Delaware Memorial Bridge en route from Baltimore to Brooklyn. Following the accident all members of the band were hospitalized, as was tour manager Michelle Cable of Panache Magazine.

Nishiura, a native of Hiroshima, had formerly played in Shonen Knife and a number of other Japanese bands including Rashinban, Jesus Fever, Teem, Music Start Against Young Assault and Cel.
