    About

    The Crew
    Weeb Streets is a collective of Japanese Music and Dance enthusiasts. Weeb Streets would like to help contribute to building up the local community of Japanese Music enthusiasts. Independently, many of us have been seen dancing at local anime conventions for the last ten years. We recently have decided to join forces and branch out to spread our favorite music with a variety of crowds.
    The Name
    You might be wondering why we decided on the name “Weeb Streets”? The reason is straightforward in the sense that we consider ourselves “Weebs dancing in the streets.” The slang “Weeb” is derived from the word “Weeaboo.” It is originally an insult targeted towards fans of Japanese Popular Culture. Despite the word's origins we have noticed a trend in “Weeaboo Culture” becoming it’s own phenomenon online. The term as of late has been able to be viewed more positively and become a catch-all for Japanese Cultural influences.
    The Gear
    We’ll be bringing J-pop inspired dance music, costumes and performances to events across Utah and even out of state events. We feature a completely mobile, music and DJ setup to bring the party to any location. You can view our performances in the videos above.
