Yokohama tickets GET

Our tickets for the Yokohama concert came today! Looks like eplus was in charge of sending out the tickets this time though, which is why I got them more than a week before the concert I guess. So this should mean the Sendai tickets will get here in a couple of days or so too :)

Art Cube hadn't done a live for more than 5 weeks, so I was really looking forward to seeing them again yesterday. But getting there wasn't going to be too easy @_@ Arriving at the train station, we were met by a notice board saying "sorry, trains are cancelled because of, eh... wind". So we had to take a taxi to get to another town with a bigger station (there's only one line running from where I live), only to find out that no trains were running there either. The taxi driver had talked about a bus going from nearby the station, but it was nowhere to be seen. Fortunately a limited express train came by eventually. This train usually costs a lot more than the other ones, but the guy collecting ticket money didn't check on the car we were seated in for whatever reson. I wish that would happen more often.

Art Cube played a pretty good set last night. No giant snakes came falling from the sky, and Zeta seemed to be in a really good mood ☆ He's moving further and further away from the serious image he had in this band some months ago. He was smiling during most of the live (as much as you can be smiling while you're singing), and it was the same for the MC. He even laughed a bit. This might not sound like anything special, but I had been missing the fun/happy side of him, so I'm glad to see it starting to shine through.

The songs:
1. Pain~ Wing・・・
2. Blue Heaven
3. A got confinement
4. 失楽蝶 (shitsurakuchou)

There were a lot of PRIMEADDICT fans at this live (they were one of the other bands playing). When the fifth band was about to come on stage, all of them moved forwards, making quite a crowd, and started shouting the names of the bandmembers. After doing this for a while, the room turned dark, and the intro for.... Pain Wing started playing >__< All the Primeaddict fans went "what the.....?" while a dozen Art Cube fans frantically tried to make our way to the front between all the other people without making too much noise. At a slightly bigger livehouse, we're usually just enough people to make up a front row. Rock May Kan is really small, so we were about one and a half row of people. Because of this, the Primeaddict fans didn't leave the front, but simply took a step backwards allowing us to jump in infront of them, causing Art Cube to have the biggest crowd they've ever had x) I hope they didn't realize 95% of the people were fans of another band just guarding their good spots... Many of them seemed to spend Art Cube's set commenting to eachother how frightened they were of Rem. Is she really that scary? The general reaction I get from people when mentioning her is "aaah snake! D: D:"  I think she's cool. And she certainly makes the band stand out a bit.

Whoo tickets! And it's nice to hear that Zeta's not all "srsbsns" about everything anymore. XD

And hey, having a snake at a live is really cool. It'd be surprising the first time, but after that it would just be something else to look forward to. :D

I know right? I was really surprised at how serious he was when I first saw Art Cube. I guess Moi dix Mois might seem pretty cold too as Seth's antics are mostly "live only". But at the Dis Inferno last winter, he was doing this dance (with lyrics of his own), and this winter he did his own version of this (hence how he's dressed and posing in my icon)

I wonder if there are any other bands here bringing live animals with them on stage. I suppose it might be difficult finding an animal that would be comfortable among all the noise etc. Fortunately Rem doesn't seem to be too bothered (not that I would know what a distressed boa would act like, but I'm assuming she wouldn't be calmly slithering around Seth's neck if that was the case)
Mar. 15th, 2009 07:22 pm (UTC)
LOL! Hip-hop Seth! I would've loved to see him do the dance and act all "I'm from da hood, yo!" XD It totally defies everything I've learned about him before, but then again he did act silly in the behind-the-scenes footage from Moi dix Mois's Europe Tour DVD. So it wouldn't be *that* surprising. X3

(Jero is really cool, too, btw. <3)

Yeah, I can't imagine dogs, cats, or birds to be common livehouse animals. But since snakes can't hear anyway and they only sense vibrations, it may actually be soothing to them if it's a constant sort of sound. Then again I could just be making that up, lol.

Seeing Seth sing enka songs dressed in hip-hop style does kinda make up for the cost of tickets x) As I mentioned, it surprises me more when he does *not* act silly.

(haha, yes he is XD)

You have a point, but Rem also has to put up with all the smoke, live candles (Kazune has them on his keyboard and Zeta sometimes walks past them really close) and all the people headbanging right in front of her. I'll wait and see if it's the low temperatures this time of year making her stay so calm. She was definitely not cooperating much last summer.

That must have been amusing XD
And I think they can for the most part who the Art Cube fans are ^^;;
Mar. 16th, 2009 06:19 am (UTC)
I think they're pretty familiar with who their fans are. We always have to send them our names to reserve tickets, and it's always the same people. But it must feel better for a band to have such a large crowd of people standing in front of the stage, so I hope that feeling wasn't ruined by them obviously not being the regular fans.

hey, how are you?
how was your trip back home, easier than coming to Tokyo?
How is your back, is it getting better?
Mar. 16th, 2009 06:24 am (UTC)
The trains were running again in the evening, so I got home a little before midnight :)

Now my back is mostly just uncomfortable if I have to stand for long periods of time (which is why I sat down all the time last night), but it's getting better every day.

By the way, tickets for Moi dix Mois' live are available at Lawson/Family Mart now! :)

Jealoussss. :O Have fun at Versailles ♥
Mar. 16th, 2009 11:08 am (UTC)
I will!
And Versailles will return to Europe, so I'm sure you'll eventually get to see them too :)
Mar. 16th, 2009 11:11 am (UTC)
I hope so, they missed England out the last time D: In fact, I don't think Kamijo's ever been to England with any of his bands >.>
Mar. 16th, 2009 11:22 am (UTC)
Well, they didn't go to my home country either, and a lot of people traveled between countries to see them last spring. So even if they don't stop by Britain next time, hopefully they'll come at a time when you'll be able to travel as well :)
I'd love seeing them in London though. It's been a while since the last time I was in England, so it would be great to combine it with some sightseeing ^^
Mar. 16th, 2009 11:27 am (UTC)
Yeah, I guess Paris isn't that far; not that I could afford it right now, but it's a plan. I just don't have good memories of that place so I'd like to avoid coming back >.>
Mar. 16th, 2009 11:38 am (UTC)
Aw that's too bad. We had a great time seeing Versailles in Paris last year, also spending the day before the concert visiting "the real Versailles"♥ But what made it such a nice trip was all the friends I was there together with. So if you go with people you like spending time with, what you think of the place itself won't matter as much I think.
Mar. 16th, 2009 11:45 am (UTC)
Probably not. It wasn't Paris's fault either what happened; it's a lovely city. I'll figure something out :D

I haven't actually been to Versailles, but it's beautiful, I should go one day.
Mar. 17th, 2009 07:58 pm (UTC)
Nyaaa I want to see Versailles again too. Wish you lots of fun at the concert!

Maybe people were reacting like that to Rem, because they dislike or fear snakes in general? I like snakes in general so I wouldn't be frightened and I think it's the same for you, but if someone really dislikes them I can understand why they don't feel well around her.
Mar. 18th, 2009 08:04 am (UTC)
I'm just glad I was able to get tickets for this particular live. It's a small venue.

But you'd still think at least one person would react with "how cool :D", no? But the fans of the other bands ALWAYS have a "kyaa, scaryyyyyy" reaction -__-; (or is not disliking snakes less common than I imagine?)
If nothing else, we don't have to compete with other groups of people for good spots in front of the stage x)
Mar. 18th, 2009 11:37 am (UTC)
Oh so that how the spring tour's ticket look like.^^ Have fun at the live!\^o^/

About Rem, umm maybe they have nothing personal against Rem, but they are just afraid of snake in general.^^? (I know that I am^^') Oh sorry to hear about the problem with the train though... Was this live on last Saturday? It was really windy then.
Mar. 18th, 2009 12:18 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it was last Saturday. But it wasn't windy at all here that day, we only had wind on Friday. We've had a lot worse weather before, and the trains were still running then, so I don't know what the problem was this time :/

Do you know if you will be able to make it to the Art Cube/Juka live in April? Let's hope Seth doesn't drop Rem on the audience then ^^;
Mar. 19th, 2009 12:20 pm (UTC)
Oh really? It was raining in the morning that day as well. I had to go to school in the rain that day>,<

Oh no I forgot that Juka's live is on April 3rd..., I will still be in Thailand.:( I wish I could go to this live, I mean Juka and Art Cube on 1 day is such a cool thought... Too bad my family is having a gathering on Apr 4th so I can't leave before that day...:_:
