Another quick post before I go to bed



Art Cube did a threeman with Lucy and E'm~grief~ today.



Setlist:
1. 螺旋月 (rasenzuki)
2. Pain~ Wing・・・
3. Blue Heaven
4. 失楽蝶 (shitsurakuchou)
5. False Praye
6. Soaring awakening

lol, False Praye... None of us were expecting that song, and they hadn't played it for several months. So during the entire first part of it, before the chorus, we were just standing there looking confused (An entire row of people going "Wait... what song is this again..? False Praye? Ah! What do we do??!") The band looked pretty confused too, at none of us doing any furi, but about half of us remembered what we were supposed to do once we got to the chorus, fortunately (Which happens to be the most complicated of all the coreography to any of their songs, while what we're supposed to do before that part is actually pretty basic stuff. And still we all failed x) ) Hope they'll give us a second chance on Friday.

Nobu was back on stage today :D His bass playing sounded like it always does, so I guess his arm's healed up pretty well. It was nice seeing him again. It's always fun to watch him jump around making strange faces.

The band's currently working on a new set of costumes. Their current ones have become a bit worn out by now. Seiji had made a few changes to his today, as the big 'dead butterfly wings' that have been attached to his back had started to fall apart. He'd changed them into a smaller, detachable pair today, and removed them completely for the encore. Yossy finally got a new wig that looks a lot better on him than the purple one.

The encore was a session with the three bands. Ruido K4 is a very small stage though, so all members can't fit on there at the same time (especially with E'm and Art Cube's costumes), so Seiji and Shizuki were the only Art Cube members that participated. They did E'm's "Pains of aspiration", both Sakaki (Lucy's vocalist) and Seiji obviously not knowing the lyrics, and the latter messing up several times.


Next live coming up in less than a week ^^ Maybe they'll announce some news then.


(edit: Well that was sudden... They didn't mention anything about it at this live, but the South American tour has apparently been canceled. I guess that explains the staff girl being kinda vague about it when talking to her about the tour last night.)

Good to hear that Nobu is back in action.

I'm sad about the SA tour, but also a bit relieved. The organiser messed up M10M's US tour a few years back and I think has only "successfully" organised one tour (Antifeminism) in that they actually had concerts, but there were also problems. Given that they already have problems in their home country I was doubtful how well they would do in a foreign country.

We really missed Nobu. And he is the member with the most fans, so it was a bit empty without any of them present at the previous lives.

I think a South American tour would go better than the "European" one. The organizers over there seem to be doing a better job + the fanbase is bigger.

Art Cube's been doing a little better here lately too. Some new faces are starting to show up at their lives, and they've been doing more lives with artists like Kaya and E'm these past few months. Those artists have fans that wouldn't normally go to a live just for Art Cube, but they're interested in seeing them when they get the chance, and fill up the front area.
I think the band should consider getting some new merch soon. There were quite a few E'm fans wanting to buy stuff last night, but the band currently only has a couple of CDs and nothing else, and I heard several people complaining about this. (On a brighter note; they managed to sell all the remaining copies of one of their releases after the live was over)

In general it would probably do the band good to promote themselves a little more.

Actually, I meant given that the organisers already have problems in their home country I was doubtful how well they would do organising a tour in a foreign country. But it's great to hear that AC are gaining new fans!

In general it would probably do the band good to promote themselves a little more.

Sounds like a good idea, and they should tell their mates over at M10M to do the same...
