This Saturday, December 13, 2014, visual kei band, Lin ~the end of corruption world~, will be hosting a live stream event at XENON in Los Angeles' Little Tokyo. The event is the fifth in a string of monthly live stream events that have presented bands like CELL, DIAURA and Royz. These events are unique in that they offer fans in the US to not only ask the band questions but also, just as importantly, allow the band to ask the fans questions too. This latter part is something that few see in Q&A events and is a nice twist to the standard formula.
Lin, for those who do not know, is a band made up of ex-Phantasmagoria bassist, Kisaki and several members of the band Megaromania. Lin would mark the return to performance for Kisaki, who retired from performing after Phantasmagoria's break-up, and it's original line-up released two albums, two mini-albums and several singles before it too went on hiatus. They recently reformed earlier this year with a completely new line-up (except for Kisaki) and played a pair of live shows, cementing their return. After a record label change, several one-man and joint concerts and a coupling single with CELL, Lin and Kisaki are ready to continue their legacy with their new mini-album "Recollection of Phoenix" which will be released on December 24th.
XENON is the official Cure Magazine shop, located in The Little Tokyo Mall in Los Angeles (319 E. 2nd St #119 Los Angeles, CA 90012). It has been open since August 1st, 2014 and has hosted several events and fairs in that relatively short time. The store carries various apparel brands from Shibuya 109, including Jury Black, as well as, CD’s, DVD’s, and official tour merchants of idols and visual-kei bands straight from Japan. This event, like their past live stream events, is completely free. No cover will be charged. It will run between 8:00-9:00 PM on December 13, 2014. SNS and event page links below.
