Idol Live: IDOL Live Experience Vol. 1
The other day I mentioned that I had some groups that put on some great live shows be it in the indoor small venues or outdoors in the open air that we wanted to get on site this week.Here is the first batch of this new series.
It`s easy to look at a music video and see an well produced product ,however the real test of a group or band is their live show and these following groups each bring their own style and fan base experience.
THE SPUNKY are three young ladies that are high energy cuteness that continue to improve with each live. They draw a highly motivated fan base for Idol Pop/Rock lives. It`s hard not to support these Idols as it`s like rooting for your little sister and her friends doing their best.
Well worth the time to see them if you can.
Kanna and Carua are two Kansai region Idols that came together in February 2014 to perform what they describe as the goal of “developing a hot live all over the country”.
BUNNY♥KISS much like THE SPUNKY draw energetic fans to an up-tempo show.
SARU Dol has grown a lot since the last time that I checked in with them. With SARU Dol it`s easy to get into their live shows as most are 2hrs long. SARU Dol like the two mentioned before bring a mix of Idol Pop and some Rock. It`s just enough to be high energy shows while staying with the traditional Idol feel of the groups. Recently the group held their 500th live, which is impressive for a group that`s not very old in active life.
When you look at their schedule you get to understand why they reached 500 lives as the group performs every day or every other day with multi lives [2-3 times a day] on weekends. To compare that, that`s like cramming Sayumi of Morning Musume`s entire concert career into little over a year + of lives.
If you compare it to a heavy touring heavy metal band that can do 232 shows in 16-18 months ,you can see how SARU Dol`s strategy of not having the crowd sizes of big name groups is replaced by being road warriors and just keep performing as much as possible.
It`s really the only way for Indies to survive honestly is to build as many pockets of fans across Japan or a region and hit those towns hard.
TENKU ON PARADE
This Osaka group not only puts on a great live, but also has high some great visual MVs. If you don`t add this group to your following list, you’re going to miss out on something special.
These next two groups I am presenting for different reasons
This is a group that I have kept up with their audio tracks on You Tube and have been wanting to see them live ,but just have not had the time yet. So this live is a chance to do just that. Plus they use harsh vocals and screams from time to time ,yet are not really Idol Metal.
Figment † Twinkle [Esora † Twinkle]
This is a group was recommended by the leader of my about to debut Idol group. I asked her if she knew of a fresh Idol group that fit with the groups presented today.
She suggested Esora † Twinkle and even mentioned that one member had her lip pierced. That alone deserved the group getting on Pure Idol Heart.
After listening to the group, they really do fit the groups I put together today for this post, plus they gained a new fan.
Until next time we wish well!
