    Great job on the setlist! You missed a few though... they also played Hajimara no Uta (Pokemon song) and Nice Buddy.

  2. Gah! You're right. I don't know how I forgot these - this was the catalyst for Yumi's little purist Japanese pronunciation lesson ("Po-ke-mon... ka-ra-o-ke... sa-ke..."). Or maybe I just don't want to admit to myself that they did the theme song for a Pokemon movie :)

    Either way, I'll add these... though under their real titles :)

    Sounds like a great concert. Fairly recently(last year) I started listening to them and I really like alot of the songs they played here. I live in Staten Island, NY so if I didn't find out in september I might've went. I'm 14 so its not like I can go alone but of all the bands i've heard they are by far the best both as singers and as people.

    Many other singers(especially in america) are treated like royalty and begin to act like it. Puffy on the other hand seem like normal people in comparison. I really wish I was there but then again it'd be kind of embaressing since alot of people consider it either girly or weird(those crazy asians -_-) or both. But none the less I'd like to go.

    I actually heard about them a month or two before their show on cartoon network which was kind of coincedental. Anyway I wasn't sure if it'd be worth it and I've never been to well anywhere really I don't go out much, but next time they're in NY I'll probobly go. Just hope they're as good as they were then.

    It sounds like you had a pretty much identical experience, right down to your places in front of the stage! I saw their show in Chicago at The Vic, and you pretty much caught it all, great job!

    My father had known I was into JRock and the like, and when he found an article about them in the newspaper announcing their concert and declaring them the "Japanese Beatles" we were off! It really was a great show (and my dad was looking really confused at the back of the mosh pit, it was great) and even if I didn't know all the songs then, I do know them now(and have even learned a few on guitar to boot) I really hope they come back so I can bring my friends!


About This Blog

This is increasingly not a blog about Alphabet City, New York. I used to live in the East Village and work on Avenue B, but I no longer do. Why don't I change the name if I'm writing about Japan and video games and guitars? Because New Yorkers are well-rounded people with varied interests, and mine have gone increasingly off the rails over the years. And I don't feel like changing the name. I do still write about New York City sometimes.
