Yanakoto Sotto Mute make their major label debut tomorrow (March 25th) and, to celebrate, have invited us all to a live band set!! Can’t make it to Japan? No problem! Because of stupid corona virus the concert is a live-streamed event via the Internet and you can buy tickets with PayPal.

The live stream starts on at 19:30 (Japan time) with the show starting at 20:00 followed by a talk with the members. For those of us who have trouble with time zones, I made a countdown clock for us. It turns out to be about 3:30 a.m. tomorrow morning my time. I lamented this fact until I realized I’m working from home now so the only one who’s going to look at me funny if I fall asleep at my computer later in the day is my cat.
Buying a ¥ 550 ticket for the event was surprisingly easy. The service provider, ZAIKO, will accept Gmail or Facebook to establish accounts and they accept PayPal as a payment method (for an additional ¥ 300 fee). With conversion rates, my ticket came to about $7.50 which is a serious bargain for a Yanamute band set.
So, what are you waiting for? An invitation in English from Tsukasa?
In preparation, be sure to pick up a digital copy of their major-label debut single, “Afterglow”and watch their gorgeous MV on repeat.
