A little update on the festivities that taking place this weekend. (It's music-related, I promise.) The main purpose is to inform you on the concert we attended the first night. We watched an all-female heavy metal band from Tokyo called "Destrose". Now, I know, you think "those quirky Japanese...that's good for a laugh...what a cute, novel idea."
You need to know that...THEY. ROCK. HARD.
They have super-sharp musicianship. They blew the monitors twice. The place was nuts the whole time.
In such spirit, feel free to discuss (or better yet, contribute related art about) music groups you admire from a country of origin not your own. Depending on results, perhaps we'll have a kind of "world music" folder. Stay tuned, and keep rockin'!
