News, Updates, and Intro!
I am a new Staff member, and Reporter to this site. My name is Aisuru, and I’m hoping you’ll see a lot more of me for a long time. (^_~)
Anyways! Onto what’s really important. There’s been another date added to Miyavi’s tour. It’s another California date, and it’s in San Francisco the day after the first one. So instead of the 18th being the only time to see him there, you’ve all gotten lucky; the 19th is too!

The popularity of Jpop, Jrock and Visual Kei has been gathering steam in the US. The genres were originally introduced to the US market through the theme songs and supplemental music in Japanese anime. Hardcore anime fans turned to the internet to discover the artists behind these catchy pop songs and this opened a whole new world to what has become the “Otaku” generation. The fans of this music are highly dedicated who tend to grasp at any opportunity to see a concert, buy merchandise or actually meet a Japanese artist.
One of the most well-known and respected Jrock arists is -miyavi-, whose visually stimulating shows not only incorporates traditional rock instruments but often taiko drums, tap dancers, beat box and even live painters.
Miyavi has also brought a new friend into the world tour! An 18 year old Beatboxing DJ named Teddy Loid. He is taking the place of 1,2 and Hanger in all the live performances during Miyavi’s tour. For unknown reasons, Hanger and 1,2 cannot participate. (Credit to Vicki ‘Bicchan/Baka_Neko’ for translating/reading Miyavi’s Kavki Boiz blog posts to find out about the new addition to the team.)
Also, the Artist’s Myspace section has been updated. All the one’s that were dead links, or links that went nowhere, are now gone. Along with that, the Artist’s Blog section has also been brought to date.
