XENON in Little Tokyo will bring it's in-store live stream events into the new year on January 24, 2015! These events have featured bands like CELL, DIAURA and Royz. This upcoming event will feature the band DaizyStripper who will be broadcasting live from Japan into the store which will be full of their American fans. These events are unique in that they not only offer the Western fans to meet and interact with their favorite artists, but also allow the band themselves to interact with the fans too by way of their own Q&A. An interesting twist on the standard formula if there ever was one. This is a very special opportunity, fans in the US should clear their calendars and prepare those burning questions!
DaizyStripper formed in 2007 and rose to stardom quickly with their unique brand of visual kei that varies from upbeat numbers to darker, more rocking, songs. Complete with sold out concerts and frequent indie chart-topping singles, DaizyStripper have also toured overseas in the US, Canada and Taiwan. Amongst some of their most well-known songs are "TRUTH" (Their first Indies Oricon chart-topper) and "Setsubou no Freesia" (Ending theme for the anime "Yu-Gi-Oh"). While the band has carried on as a four-piece since the 2013 departure of guitarist/leader Mayu, they have since announced their reunion with him in November 2014 and the five-piece DaizyStripper is together again with their original line-up. Their latest single "ARREST" drops on January 21st just days before the event at XENON. The PV preview and CM can be seen below.
