Art Cube appeared at one of Sus-4's events again this Thursday.
The band had NOT prepared enough for this live (￣Д￣；； They had decided on a few songs at the live house it seems.... And the lack of preparation was really obvious. According to Seiji they did have some sort of rehearsal, but it certainly didn't look like it.
These were the songs they played:
1. False Praye
2. Soaring awakening
3. 虹化鏡 (kougekyou)
And they really messed them up. To begin with I thought the first song was a new song, before they got to a part that was recognizable as False Praye. They didn't have the play-back keyboard parts they needed this time (as Kazune will still be gone for a while), and had to do everything without that instrument. If anything, it proved how important Kazune's role is. For the second song, Seiji shouted the name of the song before they started playing (He usually doesn't announce the names of anything but the ballads, so maybe he noticed our confused faces earlier). Kougekyou was also completely unrecognizable at first ^^; But the band seemed amused at their own mistakes, and it's been a long while since I've seen them look this happy. They were constantly smiling; even Nobu who usually doesn't smile at all.
I do hope they'll actually prepare for the next live though, so we can get a slightly longer setlist. All the other bands today played for quite a while.
The next live is coming up already on Tuesday, which is another collaboration live with E'm, Kaya and VII-Sense, and this time Secilia Luna will also join them :) Art Cube's really been spoiling us with the amount of lives lately. Since May, they've done a live every week + Seiji's solo live. They have another live the day before Moi dix Mois' tour starts, after which I'll still be able to see Seiji every week, before they start up with an equally busy schedule in August (^_^)
