Oh my god they're EVERYWHERE.

Not that it's a bad thing.

That's pretty cool. I enjoyed them at A-kon last year and can't make it there this year. ^_^;

05-22-2003, 01:26 AM
Omg...*falls off chair* Finally I can see them. I've been hearing all this good stuff about them but I can never make it back east. So happy they are making the trip to SoCal ^-^

05-22-2003, 01:51 AM
Yay I cant wait, my first ever jrock concert!

05-22-2003, 01:07 PM
Yay! I finally get to see them! ^_^

05-22-2003, 01:32 PM
Yay!! I was hoping there would be at least one j-rock band coming to AX this year.. ^^

Also I've heard rumours there's another coming..? *wonders who the mystery band is*

I've been hearing mixed reviews about them.....so, are they good....or? What is your opinions. =o

05-22-2003, 02:49 PM
Jei ~ They're very good live. They really know how to get a crowd going, especially the vocalist. I really enjoyed the concert at A-kon, though I didn't stick around the entire time as I felt sick and had slept very little. ^_^;

05-22-2003, 06:26 PM
yay! this is my first j-rock concert! i hope it'll be either on thurs or fri since i can't make the last two days

w00t! J-ROCK! XD I'm gonna spread the word! XDDD

05-22-2003, 10:02 PM
I just got three of my friends to come to AX just to see Duel Jewel. I am soo excited cause I have been waiting for AX to bring over a jrock band. I hope they can bring more over. ^-^ *jumps around*

05-22-2003, 11:32 PM
An independant third party, a few other staffers and J-rock Events crew (Cherry Pie, Kurara, myself) fought for this to happen. Bands bring themselves over - no con helps them financially; only their fine management, business supporters, funds from the fans and their own pockets haul them from gig to gig. Cons provide the vital time and space so that we can experience the glory that is J-rock.
This was a battle, my friends - and J-rock Prevailed! PLEASE tell everyone you can to come! And yes - a "mystery" band! Oh, la la ~ and no, I won't reveal anything ~ you'll just have to wait!

05-23-2003, 12:07 AM
Im really glad that you worked this hard. This is soo great you guys did this. Its great to know that people work extra hard for jrock. Its a very good thing to hear.

yes a mystery band! I wonder who it is?????

Someone sent me a clip of one of their songs...Kizuna or something...I think it was. I really hope they're better in person. I mean, they're not bad.... but ^_^; they could be a band that just sounds better in person.

05-23-2003, 04:37 PM
Jei ~ Oh, I agree. I had heard some songs before the concert and really wasn't impressed.. but they're really great live, and made the songs better to listen to at home, even if they didn't have the same feel. ^_^;

05-24-2003, 01:47 AM
Yup i bet their music is better live. But I really hope they sing Chinmoku. I love that song ^-^

05-24-2003, 02:01 AM
Heehee, Chinmoku and Nauthiz are my favorite songs by them... Of course, they're only two of three of their songs that I can name. x_x; But uhh yeah. I like Red Beast wo Korose, too. I remember they performed both Nauthiz and Chinmoku at A-kon.. I only knew Nauthiz so I was super happy to hear it live.. but I later found Chinmoku and remembered it from the con. :D

05-24-2003, 06:50 PM
Oh thats cool they played chinmoku. I listen to that song all the time. I think its one of Duel Jewels best. Do you know if they selled their cd at A-Kon? Nauthiz is really a good song too. Oh yeah almost forgot about Anmaku. ^-^ good stuff

05-24-2003, 10:22 PM
Hey everyone ~
I heard there were rumors flying about on the identity of the "mystery" band - XD I know, it's hard not to BUT please do not fuel or believe any rumors! If you do not hear it straight from AX (including the J-rock Events crew) then disregard it.
Like I said - I know it's hard not to fan the fires once they get going, but please hang on just a little bit more! I promise you'll be the FIRST to know!

05-24-2003, 11:16 PM
ambitiousmiyavi ~ *nodnod* They had the CD available there, yeah. ^^ I was just rather broke and spent my money on Shaman King merchandise and a T.M.Revolution CD single. ^_^;;

05-25-2003, 02:15 PM
Has (whoevers in charge of this) decided what time they are going to perform? A lot of my friends can just make it to friday. I hope it friday.
Ok good I'll buy their cd at AX. Lets just hope the lines for the dealers room is not insane like last year.

05-25-2003, 08:01 PM
My anxiousness for Anime Expo to get here has just reached it's maximum level. *_*

05-25-2003, 09:21 PM
Your not the only one. If they bring another jrock band. I think im going to pop. This is all crazy.

05-26-2003, 03:46 AM
Duel Jewel has that unpolished quality, but they still put on a great live show. And if you like Gackt's voice you'll love Hayato *_* He's like a young Gackt with that beautiful J-rock lilt~

*yes, I am a self-proclaimed Hayato fangirl ^^;;;;;;

05-26-2003, 01:14 PM
Ok, without starting or spreading rumors, can i ask one thing: Is it an indies band or a major? Even if you're not positive they are coming, it gives us all a little tiny hint so we know what we're expecting.

*meekly waves fansign* yuyaaa~~ XD

05-27-2003, 01:26 PM
If you mean major like Dir en Grey, no way! LOL Not enough money that 1 individual has to put on a show like that.

I do not believe this will be on Friday because of too many scheduling conflicts (the AMV contest in particular) I believe Thursday night is going to be the night. Saturday & Sunday are out, of course.

05-27-2003, 05:55 PM
so I guess that should lean to an indies band, then. It's all good either way ^-^

06-03-2003, 07:44 PM
Oh. Overall, this is cool and unexpected.
I really have no more energy to comment on DJ's convention appearance yet again (I swear...those boys are matching my con schedule...er, except Otakon that is - which they wanted to come to, but there's no competing against TMR.) ...Well, anyway there're pros and cons to their coming...but, once again, I too will encourage people to support them.

06-10-2003, 07:21 AM
they sound way better live.not that their CD sounds bad (noah) sounds really good, much better than Lapidary which was their first

but honestly, they know how to get the crowd going (maybe gets them going a little bit too much)
i've been to 2 concerts ;;_;; but i might not make the AX one since i pre=booked tickets to arrive there thurs night X______X; *grumbles* so if they have it thurs....i'm outta luck :P oh well

another thing about them is they're really nice, if they have an autograph session u'll see that about them >_<;
quite modest~etc

oh well for those def. going to concert, i'm sure u'll enjoy it :D :D :D

06-11-2003, 01:25 AM

This will be the first time that I see them - so I am excited. I am also excited about BLOOD @ Fanime ~

I saw Chisato here in L.A. ~ but that was in 2000 ^-^

06-11-2003, 02:39 AM
Okay, here's the revised times on their concerts:

Thursday, 7-9:30pm at the AX Dance, California Ballroom D
Saturday, 7-9pm at the AX Dance, California D
