Music events: - On Saturday March 15 was a free in-store morning live show at the Daikanyama Tsutaya book store, featuring frenesi and blue marble! I couldn't see so well from the back of the small seated space, but that was a really nice show, and a nice way to start the day. frenesi first played 3 songs accompanied by pianist Shock Tarō (of blue marble), and then blue marble played a full set of 7 songs. There was also an autograph session where I got to say hi to frenesi and blue marble's singer Takei Mariko.

frenesi set list: 8jihan no Take / Go Ropeway / Lowitz Arc
blue marble set list: mimei sensō / an no un / Ribbon / Party no hōteishiki / boy MEETS girl / super star shooter (new song for upcoming game) / Gerda no hatsukoi

(Takei Mariko can be seen live on April 11 at Shibuya Lotus. frenesi has a double event on May 3 at Daikanyama Loop. Tickets are on sale.)

- And I also went to see a solo show of Minekawa Takako, a synth artist I've been a huge fan of for a long time. I have seen her a few times last year with Dustin Wong (with who she released album "Toropical Circle", live report here), but it was my first time seeing her solo. This was part of an event themed around cassette tapes and boomboxes, and she used these throughout her set. I plan to write a report of this show so stay tuned! Oh, and I got to meet her again! :)

The exhibition at Sansūjuku is on until March 31, info here.
