THE VELVET @ 高田馬場AREA June 12th


This was the best THE VELVET live ever! I've been going to their lives for a couple of years now, and I can't remember any of their lives being as enjoyable as today ^^

I'll add the setlist when MiMi puts it up, as they played a couple of new songs I don't know the name of yet.

1. 愛憎倒錯遊戯 (aizou tousaku yuugi) new song
2. Victor
3. Heroine
4. Poison
5. 静寂は凶暴 (seijaku wa kyoubou) new song
6. 白いカラスは眠れない (shiroi karasu wa nemurenai)

I couldn't go to the previous live, and therefore hadn't seen them since April. I don't know what must have happened last time, but today the entire front row had changed. The other regulars were not there at all for some reason. Though I feel sorry for whatever must have happened to the other people to make them want to leave, I think it would be really good for the band if the people who showed up today keep coming. They were really energetic and appreciative of all the members on stage. For the guitar solos when Bera went to the center of the stage, the other girls would move out of the way so I could follow him there. A lot less awkward than being the only one doing the furi way over on the right side, but all of them joined in on the furi too :D Even for the new songs, everyone were cooperating on getting into the music. I think it'll really do both the band and the fandom some good if it continues being this way.
I think I had a big smile on my face for most of the set, and even welcomed MiMi to put the bird cage over my head when he came over to our side waving it in his hand.

I love the current outfits. MiMi had the polkadotted shirt with a black vest over it, black short pants and boots for once. Bera had a nice black jacket, ruffled white shirt and the polkadotted tights. And his hair looked amazing today. I don't think they've looked this good since 2008.

Got my ticket for the band's sponsored event through their presale at the merch table :) And I still have another live with them to look forward to at the end of this month.
