When I went to Japan in 2014 I was a complete wreck - I barely planned any of the events I ended up going to and left it all up to my good friend. When I got back and things started to look up, I remembered that the one thing I wanted to do was to see the cherry blossoms in spring. Even though I went in the summer of 2014 I thought it wouldn't be such a bad idea to go back to Japan given that, well, I had nothing to lose. There wasn't really anything standing between me and the trip so I decided to book my tickets and see what happened.
Even though my aim is to cover live shows and interesting places I visit in Japan there is a wealth interesting stuff that happens in between that I will also try to pepper into the entries. As far as concerts are concerned, I attended the following:
3/22 - Kichijoji WARP - ハラフロモヘル (harafromhell) / ナードマグネット (Nerd Magnet) / ランランランズ (RanRanRans) - Published 5/18
3/24 - Shimokitazawa Garden - BELLRING少女ハート (Bell Ring Shoujo Heart) / ザ・ラヂオカセッツ (The Radio Cassettes) / 本棚のモヨコ (Hondana no Moyocco) / チーナ (Chiina)
3/27 - Nagoya Club Quattro - 大森靖子 (Oomori Seiko) + band
3/28 - Nagoya Imaike GO NOW (multiple live house event, tons of bands)
3/29 - Ebisu Liquidroom - 水曜日のカンパネラ (Suiyoubi no Campanella)
4/02 - Zepp Nagoya - でんぱ組.inc (Dempagumi.inc) + DenDen Band
4/05 - Tokyo Dome City Hall - Okamotos / 水曜日のカンパネラ (Suiyoubi no Campanella) / パスピエ (Paspie) / The Bawdies / チャットモンチー (Chatmonchy)
If it wasn't a "one-man" show, the artist I wanted to see I indicated in bold.
There were also a couple of other shows I was supposed to go to but I missed for one reason or another - which I will explain a little about in the entries for the shows I did get to go to.
I'll be working hard in between school work and other things to get these up ASAP, so stay tuned!
