Dir en grey will be playing on American soil for the first time ever tonight. To celebrate this event, Ikuni, myself and a fellow co-worker/Diru fanatic (we converted her) are getting together this evening and watching YouTube clips of past concerts.
We have it all planned out. I chose the opening act–Fatima. Ikuni made the set list for Dir en grey. We have behind-the-scenes clips for intermission. And my co-worker is bringing liquid refreshments–Black Cherry Smirnoff's for us and IBC root beer for Ikuni.
Also, for any who are interested, here’s a live performance of Embryo. Dir en grey doesn’t shrink from difficult issues. Embryo deals with incestuous rape, and Kyo takes on a young woman’s perspective in the song.
