I am totally jealous of those of you in Europe at the moment. NECRONOMIDOL is working their way across The Continent while being joined by 2& and GARUDA in London for HYPER JAPAN.
Over here on this side of the pond, things are much more dull unless you happen to be at San Diego Comic Con.

Over here at Casa de Daemon, I feel like I have to apologize a bit. I’ve gotten a new work job in RealWorld™ and it’s been taking time away from my true vocation as an amateur idol blogger. I wanted to do a whole post on MELON BAT and the new SIPP EP earlier this week but it’s all ended up here in the Weekender. I’ve also been slacking on The Calendar, so my apologies for letting that slip. Stupid work job. But, back to the good stuff that really matters:
GARUDA dropped this MV just in time for her appearance at HYPER Japan.
GARUDA’s other gig, MELON BATAKE A GO GO is preparing for their US debut at Saboten Con in just over a month.
SIPP have released the best-named EP of the year.
