Met up with a Norwegian friend in Takadanobaba this afternoon, to go to AREA together for another live with THE VELVET ^^ 

Fortunately Velvet would be band number four to play tonight (out of eight), so I didn't have to worry about it getting too late. I wish they'd be able to do more lives during weekends; it's always really tiring getting up extremely early the morning after a live. And it kinda causes problems for me in general with lives on weekdays D:  (As I was writing this, they added a live for a Sunday... Thank you!)

I was also happy to see SaTaN and ギャロ being among the bands playing this time :) I can't follow their lives as a regular in any sort of way, but luckily they've been playing with both Velvet and Art Cube every now and again. SaTaN really knows how to put on a show. They had changed the stage props since I previously saw them, into a fun fair haunted house. They did some small theatrics and threw lots of candy into the audience.

THE VELVET entered the stage about half past six, as promised.
1. 愛憎倒錯遊戯
2. Victor 
3. 狂った夜に
4. Poison
5. 静寂は凶暴
6. 白いカラスは眠れない

^I think it was something like that? I don't really know about the new toomanykanjitoremember entitled songs. Will have to check with the official blog when it's updated. Same goes for the order of a couple of the others.
edit: looks like that setlist was correct.

Outfits same as last time. Bera changed his hair though, and added feathers (No feathers anywhere at the live a couple of weeks ago, which was the first time for almost two years). And... new guitar? :D (I'm really not good at noticing stuff like this it seems, unless it's a completely different colour or something ^^;; ) It looked great. Black & white, and still all shiny.

And as far as I could see, the set went on without any trouble this time. My ribs were in pain from being dragged into the railing again though ^^; But it's fun nevertheless. I rarely see a band interact with the fans in the same way as these guys, and I really appreciate them for that :)

(Only after leaving AREA to go eat dinner, we noticed we forgot to write the anketo (>_<) Sorry MiMi)

Did your friend enjoy the live as well?:-D
What was Bera's reaction with the new gaijin, btw?
And I don't think you should worry about the anketto. You almost never write anyway, and I am sure they are happy enough to have you as a regular writing reports in English and spreading their work!

Yeah, she really enjoyed the live, and it was her that wanted to write the anketo (mostly so she could circle the 'pregnant'-option on there x) )

Bera was simply smiling and being his usual self, trying to look cool. Of course, during the guitar solo at the end of the last song, he managed to make the mic stand in front of us fall down (then making an attempt to catch it mid-air ^^; ) Can't have a live without something like that happening.

Mai's not just looking down to the left anymore. Now he's looking more into the ceiling, and all around him on the floor. Anywhere but at people *sigh*
