Concert Screening in LA Featuring exist†trace, girugämesh, MUCC, and More

jmusicliveviewingla-2013-small

Live Viewing Japan, Inc., is putting together a series of Japanese concert screenings in Los Angeles throughout the weekend of July 4-7!

Over the course of the extended weekend, fans will have an opportunity to see exciting recorded performances from the likes of BREAKERZ, exist†trace, girugämesh, JAM Project, MUCC, and SID for an entry fee of $20 per screening. Each one of these groups brings something else to the table – from BREAKERZ’s futuristic glam to exist†trace’s fierce female fivesome to girugämesh’s playful tech rock to JAM Project’s collection of dominant industry talent to MUCC’s unpredictable chimera of sound to SID’s far-reaching appeal. While the groups don’t cover the whole spectrum of Japanese rock, they do give fans plenty of options to suit whatever their taste or mood.

Luna Sea

In addition, there will also be a screening of legendary LUNA SEA‘s 2012 charity live, A Promise to The Brave in Sendai, on July 5th. This screening has special meaning to the band and to fans, as all of the proceeds of this concert went to the Japanese Red Cross to provide aid to those affected by the March 11, 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and ensuing nuclear disaster that devastated the Tohoku region of Japan, taking lives and livelihoods and, even now, leaving thousands of people displaced.

All of these screenings are of various pre-recorded events that took place in the last couple of years, but even if you have seen them, when will you ever have a chance to see them projected on the silver screen, with music blasting from every direction in theater surround sound? Nothing beats seeing a concert live, but if anything comes close, this unique cinema experience would surely be it!

If that’s not enough incentive, Live Viewing Japan has even more in store. The final showing on July 7 will be a time-delayed live stream of the last of VAMPS‘s 7-day consecutive Live 2013 concerts at Zepp Diver City Tokyo. This one will set you back a little bit more at $25, but when you consider that you’ll be getting the first international glimpse of a concert that literally finished just hours before, you may just decide it is worth it!

(If you’re wondering about the time delay, in all likelihood the time difference between Japan and LA – 16 hours – prevents event organizers from streaming it directly. The concert itself is set to begin at 7:00 PM in Japan, which would be 3:00 AM in California. Suffice it to say, this would be highly inconvenient for many LA fans.)

Tickets for the screenings went on sale June 15, but there are still some up for grabs, so hurry over to the event’s webpage for directions, details, and to get your hands on what’s left!

Note: For tickets to the LUNA SEA screening, please visit http://lunasealiveviewinginla.com/.

As a heads-up, for the more J-Pop inclined among us, electro-pop phenoms Perfume will also be present for the screenings, so to speak. The July 5th London stop on their second world tour will be broadcast in LA on July 7th.

Incidentally, If the dates July 4th through 7th seem familiar, it’s because this event coincides with Anime Expo, taking place in nearby Los Angeles Convention Center, a mere stone’s throw away from the screening venue, Regal Cinema LA LIVE. If you’re a music buff already planning to go to Anime Expo to see Kaya and Porno Graffitti, and you’ve got gaps to fill in your schedule, hop on a bus or take a bit of a walk and check out a screening!

UPDATE 2013-06-21 00:28 EDT: Added screening schedule and ticket details, plus details for Perfume’s screening.
