A night at the opera...er, not really. This night was one where the world famous Japanese composer and songwriter Yoshiki performed at the Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco as the second stop on his "Yoshiki Classical World Tour." Yoshiki, the band leader and drummer for legendary group X Japan, is a trained classical pianist and here his headbanging style gave way to a more graceful sounds of strings.
Unfortunately my memory card seems to have died right before the concert started. I personally would like to think that Yoshiki's awesomeness could not be contained in such a small digital form, so in the absence of photos I will have to do my best to describe it with words.
