Babymetal concert line is a magical place where magical things happen. :thumbsup:

Had a great time before and at the concert and even better after the concert hanging out with JPope and a bunch of other people. I'll post more when I get home.

The show was great. The seat aine found me was in the balcony, five rows back, stage right. Pretty good location! The band was tight, the girls were great, and the crowd was electric. My only beef was that, from where I was sitting, the kick drum overwhelmed most of everything else. It might have been because I was directly in front of the right-side PA stack, but I doubt that. They could have backed the kick drum off by a good 10 db by my estimation, and the mix would have been perfect. It took a couple songs to get the vocals far enough up in the mix to really hear them, too. Other than that, though, I had a blast.

 

Meeting aine was great, and hanging out with a bunch of other BM fans from all over the world after the show -- drinking beer and swapping stories -- was a lot of fun. Wish I wasn't driving, so I could have knocked a few more back.

The Alternative Press Music Awards Live Stream

BABYMETAL will be on with their Judas Priest collab very soon and if what I saw in a brief clip from soundcheck it will be an absolute killer. :weeeh:

Alternative view fancam of APMAs performance

In a way more awesome than the official stream. Holy shit Moa, give the girl another year and she will be totally upstaging the Kamis, even if not with technical mastery then surely with her stage presence.

Just watch her own the stage with Ohmura from like 4:00 minute mark to the end in this video, if this isn't fucking awesome then nothing else is. :wub: :love:

Tickets on sale September 2nd.

Sadly it doesn't seem BM will be coming to Ireland even though RHCP is. Maybe it's for the better because I would be absolutely heartbroken not being able to see them there, especially at that venue. But I'm also quietly hoping for a late additional announcement, because with the late December date I may just be able to swing by there on the way to visit family for Christmas... :whistling:

Babymetal are getting their own animated series! The three metal vixens will star in a shortform digital series produced by Warner Bros. where they defend the metal genre after it comes under attack.

Well, with BM performing, at least the crowd will get to hear one good drummer.  :rimshot:

Ha ha! Making fun of Lars is fun, because he's an asshole, but I don't have room to talk. Then again, I don't get paid to play drums.

This is such a milestone that right now I'm at a loss about what more could they achieve. :lol:

Yeah, all joking aside, I can't imagine Metallica without Lars' sound and playstyle, no matter what one can say about it.

And hey, I'll pay you in six-packs when recording my debut EP. With any luck it will be before we need a cane to walk on to the stage. :tongue:

Seeing as beer has been the most common method of payment I've received for playing music, I'm cool with that. Plus, I just really like beer.

 

That avatar is spectacular.

Just learned an interesting factoid about Lars: his godfather was Dexter Gordon. That's cooler than being the drummer for Metallica.

Tickets for the LA solo show at Palladium on 6/16 are on pre-sale now (the magic word is MAGIC). $49 + fees. Regular sale tomorrow. I'll see you folks there.

Is that a hint of resentment I hear? :lol:

Yeah, this avatar is so good I was hoping it would make me post much more to not let it waste, but it's working only to some extent so far.

That's a shame, I was hoping for another hangout and afterparty (and so was Berry!). I'm starting to lose count of how many people I know have move to Austin now. :hahaha:

And I can't believe I didn't post about their support tour with Korn. I may go see the Mountain View one, but I haven't really decided yet, tickets are pretty steep for a short Babymetal set and a band I don't exactly care about. ;/
