Former purple SKY writer/correspondent and friend of the inu, Emi D, made the announcement today that her new company Electric Orchid Productions will be bringing over Oshare-kei pimp daddies Ayabie for a coast-to-coast mini tour of the U.S.
I’ll let the press release do the talking normally reserved for me:
Mischief and mayhem abound when oshare leaders Ayabie release their hyper-powered sonic confections on unsuspecting ears. With influences from electronica to anime, Finnish metal to fairytales, the one thing keeping it together is the band’s gleeful excitement about it all. And nowhere is that excitement more palpable than at their exhilarating live shows. They’ve been rocking out Japan since 2004, Europe since 2006 and, at last, they’re touring America in 2008. Come and give your smile a workout!
Not being a girl of teen age the oshare kei scene does little for me (not that I could fit into the ttly aws’m fashions anyway –harumph), but my smile does need a workout. Since I switched to a cheapo toothpaste it seems to be less dazzle gleam, and more crest. Also it sags around the corners and I have to prop it up with toothpicks.
Those members look like they’re from two different bands!
