A kimono, some Japanese teens and a man that will melt your heart

This year I’ve gone to more concerts than ever before!
The best thing about it was i was able to see 2 of my favorite Japanese artists, Wagakki Band and Babymetal. Last night I saw
Joe Bonamossa, who is also not very known.

It was REALLY thrilling seeing people with amazing skills that are not very known, display their talents.

Wagakki Band is a blend of traditional Japanese instruments blended with modern western instruments covering Vocaloid with original songs as well. They were my favorite concert I’d ever been to. It was beautiful and Yuko sounded like an angel. They even did a sword show in the middle of the concert! It was honto sugoi!!!

Listen to wagakki band here.

Babymetal is an original mixture of adorable Japanese teens sweetly headbanging in pigtails and singing to thrashing guitar and drums. There are exactly their name; Babymetal. They are slightly more known but still not huge. It was at an intimate enough venue at the house of blues in Boston. They are absolutely different than what you’d expect.

Check out Babymetal here (best song and video, lyrics are serious too. Translation here)

Blues IS Joe Bonamossa. Honest man making an honest blues album, ALL soul. His voice will absolutely amaze you. Also not well known, Joe released an album 5 weeks ago and it made it to #5 on the billboard charts which is amazing since it is all superstars then good ole Joe that no one’s ever heard of. As he put it, “I can imagine those superstars [Rihanna, Adele, Bieber…] waking up on their mattress made of money, walking downstairs in their mansion, picking up their issue of the charts and saying ‘who the fuck is Joe Bonamossa!?’…”
He swapped out over 10 guitars for the concert plucking the strings with heartache, his voice was like warm milk chocolate pouring over your naked body.

Fall in love with Joe here (vocals start At about 2:20)
