So, I've just looked at the ACen website, and checked the updates..The new band is SID, and I listened to the sample MP3's and they don't sound that bad..any comments?

They sound and look cool to me! I'd never heard of them before Acen announced them, but I'm looking forward to being introduced to a new band! Some people are dissapointed they didn't get Psycho le Cemu like PMX and Akon, but I'm not. I think seeing a new and different band is more exciting. I'm wondering how the VIP seating and private parties are gonna work. I hope they're not too expensive! Here's the band's official English website for anyone looking for more info on them http://sid.gn.to/english/index.html
Never heard of them before today, but the mp3 clips sound pretty good. I'm a little jealous that they aren't having Psycho le Cemu, but SID will probably be a more relaxed atmosphere for ACen, since they aren't as well known. I will surely be there! :)

SID reminds me a lot of Duel Jewel. Nobody in the world has heard of them, then they come to America and become extremely popular with the J-Rock fandom. I'm not saying that SID won't be good, but this is just what it seems like.
Hehe....I was only ~hoping~ PLC might suddenly show up, since they were "replacing" Miyavi elsewhere. There really was nothing to justify that hope tho which is why I didn't mention it around here.
Yeah, so no one's heard of SID. Not a bad thing, and can be something to look forward to. Attractive Japanese guys in make-up with at least some musical ability = always a plus. ^_- They will be welcomed I bet, but we just can't really interact with them because they don't have much to know about yet. They don't make ACen a destination that -has- to be attended (a la PMX where many people around here are dropping everything on an impromptu crusade to get to) but they will be well-received I hope for people that are coming to ACen anyway.
I think this may become a trend, the "Duel Jewel" factor: 'If you can make it at an American con, you get to be a real band in your own country.' Something like that. We do need music though, and lots of it, something besides just anime themes - we need much more variety considering ACen is the only major con in the area.
Well, at least it isn't *just* SWEK on a double billing, right? ^_^; Personally, at the rate things have been going, I was worried.

Never heard of 'em before (like that's a new response) but I like what I heard from the audio clips. Wished there was more. I'm glad they found somebody else. Hope I can make it to the concert this year.
