Bellring Girls Heart is going away. Well, kind of. Mostly. For a little while. And that sucks and is sad, especially after the year they’ve had. But now you can relive the whole thing with this series of live DVDs that are coming out in a pair of Thursdays.
Let me just say how glad I am that JyuJyu is back in full swing and keeping me interested, because everything about this little bit of video is right up my alley.
It’s not a trailer, per se, but some footage of the JyuJyu members during their time in Taiwan, with the group’s trademark dark-as-hell music playing softly in the background. What a mood-setter! Reminds me of when I was 22 and would put on Slipknot when I’d have lady friends over.
Also? Drinking beer? DOUBLE-FISTING beer? You’re too much, JyuJyu.
Can you believe that it’s been two months since I last wrote a dedicated Hauptharmonie post? What the hell is wrong with me? It’s not like they aren’t doing anything — since dropping their (very good, if jazzy Britpop shoegazer disco idols are your thing) album, they’ve done TIF and a bunch of regular shows and then just had themselves a great set at JAM this past weekend:
The Peach Stage, for when you deserve roughly the third best!
Oh man, do you remember this? No? Like, maybe all of 20 people would look at the average post every day then, and half of them had “bot” in their names?
Anyway! BiSH Cannonball was a weird, barely understand day-long competition in which the six (Hug Me era) members formed into pairs and partnered with a member of the WACK staff and did this weird race/points competition, all while being filmed. It streamed live, and we were all threatened promised that it would eventually be released onto DVD. This is just as good!
Summer may unofficially be over here in the United States, but it’s still a great time to get out, see friends, drink margaritas on a veranda while listening to Juan Gabriel tributes, things like that … OR it could be a great evening to spend inside, surrounded by people who might be trying to kill you, watching batshit movie after batshit movie and eventually getting to:
Live as an idol can be grueling, especially if you’re in the indie scene and have to grind through a performance schedule just to make back your recording budget. Very much like your favorite bar band, in fact. For Tsubasa Fly, meeting their goal of charting a single ultimately meant their demise.
PassCode, just about to wrap up their tour in support of VIRTUAL and prepping for what’s probably going to be another show-stealing stage at TIF, just announced the release of their live DVD from their TRIAL OF PASSCODE tour final earlier in the year:
To celebrate the release of their pretty good second album, Deathrabbits held a two-day event at Shinjuku ReNY that was recorded for a live DVD to be released in the fall. In the summer, though, they went ahead and released a substantial teaser for it!
I mean, it’s an hour long. That’s a ton of free content. What exactly is it that you’re going to try to sell, Deathrabbits?
