So in July I went to see the band Babymetal for the first time... if you don't know them here's a little video of one of my fave songs 'Onedari Daisakusen'
The Japanese metal vocal and dance group combine sweet girly singing and speaking with heavy metal ~ something that shouldn't work but really does!
The three teenage girls Suzuka Nakamotoas "Su-metal", Yui Mizuno as "Yuimetal", and Moa Kikuchi as "Moametal" have a unique fusion of sounds creating a new genre called "kawaii metal"
So when I heard the band were coming to the UK I made sure I was going! This band is especially good live (always a plus in my book) with high energy, dance routines and an amazing backing metal band who did some solo tunes as well.
I was surprised by the mixture of people who attended the gig ~ from younger J-Fashion girls such as myself to hardcore metal male fans! It was really amazing to see such a mix of people and I have never seen such a long queue for a gig in my life!
So before the gig I arranged a small meet for some of the J-Fashion community in Camden (close to where the gig took place) We went for sushi, chin chin labs (ice cream) and then a couple of sneaky cocktails before the gig.
This is my hair and make up for the day:
Eyeshadows ~ Paperdoll and Birthday Girl by Sugarpill
Lipstick ~ Pink Planet by LimeCrime
Jewellery and Bodycon Dress ~ Roxie Sweetheart
Shoes ~ T.U.K
I still love Camden though it seems to be changing everyday becoming more commercial. I don't see the punks and alternative people there so much now which is very sad.
A pic of me and the girls~
Babymetal are playing again in November at the O2 Academy Brixton - I can't wait :D
