Hey, all!

I just got word that I'll be going to Japan this summer to study, and though I'll be in Hakodate for most of the time, I am planning to bum around the rest of Japan once the program is done. I'd love to stop and go to a live, but I'm not sure who's all playing around that time.

Basically, I have my list of bands I would love to see (Diru, MUCC, Plastic Tree, alice nine, Kagrra, SID...) and though I'm checking their sites periodically to see if any schedules are posted, it appears I'm either out of luck, or too early. Looking for something preferably in the Tokyo area around beginning-mid August, but I can work with whatever. Is there some kind of database of bands playing during the summer? Or does anyone want to recommend a show around that time?

Hmm I know that you can grab a free magazine from the convenience stores where they have a huge list of who is playing when. Not too sure if this is exactly what you're looking for though, and you'd also have to get someone in Japan to get it for you. Perhaps you could get the info online, but my search skills fail me at the moment >_<

Also, Plastic Tree and Kagrra <3! Will you be staying till the end of September? I'll be starting school in Yokohama end Sept, so if you like, we could go for their lives together! :D

Sadly, no. To stay that long I'd need to go through visa whatnot and would miss start of fall term back here! But I'll definitely have to prowl the conbini :D Thanks!

Ahhh what a pity >_<

I'm not sure if all combinis give them out, but I know that combinis which do sell the tickets, like Lawson, have their own Lawson Loppi magazine (or something along that line) which has all those dates at the back.

Hope you manage to catch the bands you want!^^

Ahaha xD It's ok. It seems like since I've been studying Japanese my english/spelling has gone down the drain.

But yeah, I should've know I'd be way too early for most bands ^^; Thanks though!

There is visunavi though?
Choosing a band name from the drop down menu on the left will show upcoming lives of only that particular band.

But yeah, it'll be a good idea to check the bands' websites too as that's were most lives are announced first.

Awesome! That's going to be super helpful. Thanks :D
