Concert Impressions: DIR EN GREY “Never Free From the Awakening” TOUR 15

Japanese band DIR EN GREY is no stranger to the United States. They've been playing shows across America for a little over a decade and thankfully call San Francisco one of their regular stops. The show tonight is in partnership with Goldenvoice who has presented the band in San Francisco for as long as I can remember. The venue is Slim's, a far different place from The Regency Ballroom a mile away that the band has frequented so often. Smaller, more intimate, and much more prone to selling out. If you don't want to get stuck in the cold or stuck in the back you have to arrive early. The formal name for the tour is "Never Free From the Awakening."

ONE OK ROCK Concert Impressions

ONE OK ROCK, hailing from Japan, has returned to California. They've played as part of the Vans Warped Tour in 2014 as well as Slipknot's KnotFest so California isn't exactly unknown to them. The San Francisco Bay Area, however, is. They had a stop in Mountain View but that was it. They still haven't made their way up to San Francisco proper so hopefully next time.
