We’re big fans of iCON DOLL LOUNGE around here, given that it’s become a great venue for the kinds of idols we appreciate while giving them a chance to, you know, idol a little bit and do a fashion show in addition to performance. Our friend @DaeMetal is in Tokyo for a little something happening next week and taking in all the shows we wish we could see, and he very kindly contributed this report in the forums:
I regularly question why I’m so intrigued by these idols and this music. Especially since, for me, one of the key characteristics of a good musician is the ability to pull off what they do in a studio in a live setting. So, on this visit to Japan, I decided to put it to the test and see just how well these idol units who have somehow gotten their hooks into my soul hold up on stage. iCON DOLL Lounge provided the perfect opportunity to kick it all off with 14 groups (not all of whom would make the Homicidol playlist) performing over the course of six hours.
Read the whole thing, and let Daemon know that you appreciate the contribution. I sure do!
