I Passed Otsuka Red Zone

Jenziih Birthday Dec. 6, 2011

Also wanted to let you know Jenziih, that I came think about you guys
when I passed this poster at Ootsuka Red Zone last week.
I went to see Vagu*Project , the band who were up after you on Narciss
that evening Oct 28th.
I hope you will be back in Tokyo soon!
If nothing else I will see you in Sweden some time 2012!!

Update:
Ōtsuka Red Zone is no more.
October 2012 Hearts took over
it is now renovated and ran as a
Otsuka Hearts+

 

 

 

Finding a Needle in a Haystack

Unfortunately their website leaves a lot of room for improvement,
at least if you are visiting from abroad, or for whatever reason don’t
read Japanese Kanji
http://homepage2.nifty.com/vagu-project/vagu.html
First of all if you go there from a place outside of Japan you might
just see weird alphabet and other characters all over the place.
Make sure your preferences are set to unicode !
If you use google Chrome check that little wrench up top in the
far right corner. Look under tools and then encoding. 
BUT
even after doing so and you can read the pages… well …you’ll
just have to see for yourself. There are a few nice images, and
their schedule is now updated!
That’s how I finally found out about the LIVEs
When I went to this page back in October, nothing was updated.
The members also have blogs (on ameblo), but as far as I can see
Ryo hasn’t  written anything since last year.
For all of you who think I have gone too far in writing about a band
you will never ever be able to see, let alone hear, I can only give you
my thanks for your patience.
After this I will finish up the writings about the remainder of the night
here at Red Zone then return to X Japan stuff and then we’ll see…
Maybe I can somehow do something about this…
December is loaded with MUSIC…
Next week coming up is BUCK-TICK and before that if I’m lucky
I hope to catch SUGIZO on Saturday’s anti-nuke demonstrations
here in Tokyo. The demonstrations we’ll be here in 渋谷区
so if you live here close by, See you then!
