Your Homicidols Weekender #339

Last weekend, I had a great time in LA seeing the US debut of CHICKEN BLOW THE IDOL. It was a great show and they put it all on stage through two performances. Even with kids and obachans in the audience, they performed some of the hardest core stuff. There were also a couple buppan session so there was a chance to get to  know the members a bit. It turns out that Ruko is practically fluent in English so we were able to chat. She told me that she had actually read the Homicidols piece I wrote about them. She didn’t say whether or not she liked it, but she did read it, and that was enough to make my week.

We’re celebrating Cinco de Mayo weekend here in the southwestern United States and looking forward to next weekend when CHICKEN BLOW THE IDOL visit Los Angeles for their US debut. Meanwhile, all the overseas idol news this week involved Europe.

If you’ve ever had thoughts about spending a summer on the continent, 2023 is the year to do it. Not only is perpetual friend of Homicidols, SARI moving to Sweden soon, but THE DEVIL’S KILLING MERRY-GO-ROUND will be making their first overseas appearance at Kodachicon in Sweden in a just couple of weeks.

Sing a song. Rock N’ Roll. La la la la la la. I’ve had that stuck in my head a lot his week. It is all PLANCK STARS’ fault.

I have to apologize for the lack of updates around here over the past week. Team is being pulled in about six different directions, and I’ve been caring for a sick cat which has me a bit stressed out. While that may not sound like the best excuse, she is a pretty awesome cat. Still, the idol world doesn’t stop spinning for any person or feline, so here’s some of what’s been going on: 

Broken By The Scream is in the US right now! They performed last night and will be entertaining Katsucon in Washington DC all weekend.

It’s a special weekend in the United States. After months of speculation, anticipation, blood, guts and tears, this Sunday is finally the big event. Not THAT big event. Who cares about the Super Bowl when the PLANCK STARS are here for their US debut!

It was a very eventful week in the global scene. Isiliel performed in France and  Germany and is now heading for Sweden to record her next album, Kasen of RILISREVERSE got her Twitter account suspended for some reason, and the South Korean live idol scene bore witness to a scandalous meltdown with more melodrama than a makjang. 

This past week was also special in that we received PVs from both SU-METAL and Pour Liu, the original queens of alternative idol. I flipped a coin and Pour Lui and  PIGGS won the honor of kicking off the Weekender.

This weekend should prove to be a lot less eventful than last when PLANCK STARS was galivanting around London live tweeting drinking parties, attempts to master electrical adapters, and their debut European live. In case you missed it, in the midst of all that chaos , their management announced that they were moving their upcoming US show from LA to New York.

Now, those of you within easy traveling distance of the New England States are in for an eventful February. In addition to Plasta hitting The Big Apple, don’t forget that Broken By the Scream are on their way to the East Coast as well. I’ll just be over here living vicariously through you all.

As I type this, PLANCKSTARS just posted that they have landed in Dubai enroute to their weekend appearance in London. I’ve seen various odds laid regarding their chances for successfully clearing UK customs. Judging by the amount of wine flowing during the in-flight meal service, bookmakers may want to adjust their betting lines.
