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.
