During my recent trip to Japan, I popped in to a place called Varit in Kobe to see my first ever visual kei concert in the Land of the Rising Sun. There were two bands on the bill アザナ (Azana) and KilloneX. Not only were the bands amazing to watch, but so were the fans – mainly teenage girls – that were headbanging with a ferocity that would put grown men to shame. On top of that, they were doing co-ordinated dance moves in unison. Not something you’re likely to see at a concert in Toronto!
Anyway, the best part of the night was when the two bands combined their forces at the end to play a couple of songs. After the show, I chatted briefly in my broken Japanese with a few band members and bought some CDs. Here are some pics from the show!
