THE VELVET @ 池袋手刀


This live was fun :D Big group of friends attending the live; six people from various countries. With the exception of a couple of people, the entire front row consited of foreigners x)

THE VELVET was the second band, so we didn't have to wait long at all. Mostly new/unreleased songs on the setlist this time. I wish they'd mix it up a bit more, but at least there was Poison and Heroine. Missed some of the more heavier songs like Shiroi karasu and Victor. I wanted to headbang more ^^; But we're guaranteed to get more old songs at the next live, since that will be another sponsored event :D

Mai was replaced by a different support drummer for this live. Should I know who he is? We were told it's a drummer we should all be familiar with... But I wasn't able to place his face (not that I could see him too clearly from where I was standing), and MiMi didn't introduce him. He did a good job, but I'm looking forward to seeing constantly smiling Mai back there on the 9th.

Bera looked extremely happy today. I think our entire group of people was trying to show him as much support as possible, and having lots of fun at the same time, so I guess that reflects on the musician too. We were all jumping up and down during Seijaku (like we're supposed to do, but often sort of...don't.), so maybe that amused them. I like Bera's smile and blowing of kisses for us ^^


After the live, we had some errands to run at the goods table. The staff wasn't there at the moment though, and while we waited I snuck a photo of their cute little table :) Polkadots!



Only now did I notice Poison's small note says "2st single", aww.



(@wingsinacage : their new anketo has a random picture of a ferris wheel!
My friend drew Godzilla attacking it before giving it to them, lol)

Maybe I'll have an "ooooh"-moment when MiMi tells us who it is, but it didn't ring any bells with me during the live.

The ferris wheel does look quite random. Usually the anketo is decorated with motives from Alice in Wonderland...
They change them quite frequently (MiMi keeps changing the answer options we can choose from for the "What did you think of tonight's live?" question). I gave away my anketo for someone else to write last night, but if the one we get next month is the same, I can try and save it for you.

MiMi shouldn't be so embarrassed about posting pictures of himself. It's not like he's out of make-up or something, (Though he's adorable without it anyway.) The Sailor Moon hair was cute ^^
At least Chiro isn't picture shy ♥

lol, Lem and Shizuki were the only ones that crossed our minds too. I guess you could comment on his blog or something, arguing that you couldn't attend the live and see the drummer yourself.

lol, that drawing is great. I especially like the little bunny. (The staff girl was borrowing it at the previous live while selling goods)

And yeah, he can blur his face if he wants, just showing his hair.
Chiro's awesome :D

It's so great that a lot of your friends came! I'm really glad that you enjoyed the live. :D

Wth? He really should've introduced the drummer, especially because a lot of foreign fans who may not seen him before. :/

OMG Bera happy? Is that even possible? XD It' VERY nice to hear that, instead of his usual not being satisfied with the sound/his playing. :) Good job on cheering him up! ^^

I'm not being mean if I laugh at that mistake, am I? XD I just looove when someone makes mistakes like that (Engrish can be really amusing sometimes!).

And Godzilla attacking a ferris wheel sound fun!

Lives are always more fun with lots of friends :)

MiMi usually chooses to skip the MC in favour of adding another song to the setlist. And if they don't have anything important to say, I prefer this way of doing it. I guess he could have slipped in a quick sentence telling us who the drummer was, but maybe we were supposed to recognize him. Just that none of us did ^^;

Engrish is amusing. Maybe they'll see this now though, and eventually correct it. And feel free to laugh at them. They make fun of us as foreigners too :p

Yeah, he could've said his name instead of "you should know who it is" (or whatever he said). :/

Unless it's something important and you can't figure out what are they saying. >_<
Lol if that's the case... Full speed ahead (to making fun of them, hahaha)! XD
j/k

Glad you enjoyed it ^^
They'll play a lot longer on the 9th + there's AC :)
And the live house for that event is much better (The best actually).
