“It seems like we won’t be able to greet everyone for a short while. We think that it’s a pity and it’s sad but if there a short goodbye, it means that there will be a really happy meeting once again so don’t fall sick and definitely wait for us and after 2 years, we will definitely greet everyone again with tours and albums once again so until then, I hope you’ll think about us D&E a lot and remember us.” - Donghae (c

“Before we say goodbye for a short while, ah it’s called goodbye but, before we can’t see each other for the time being, it’s our last present. I hope that everyone will listen to the song and wait for us brightly and healthily for 2 years. Even without us, the other members will meet the Japan fans a lot and will do activities so please support them a lot, don’t forget us and keep waiting and love us. Thank you.” - Eunhyuk (c)

Grimes Leaves Her Mark at the Shrine in Los Angeles

Hey, did you ever get a chance to see Grimes’ video for “Kill V. Maim”? Well, her night at the Shrine was kind of equivalent to that. Minus the blood and vampires of course.

Grimes’ tour “March of the Pugs” was supported by alternative artist, Tei Shi and French indie pop artist, Christine & the Queens. The 3 female musicians of the evening made for a delicious musical sandwich. It’s like Tei Shi and Grimes are the bread and Christine is the middle, like the ham, lettuce, etc… Get it? Okay never mind, keep reading please.

The crowd was anxious and their energy was untamable in the Shrine Expo Hall on April 21 as they awaited their fairy, experimental pop Princess. This was Grimes’ first proper Los Angeles show since the release of her extremely well received album, Art Angels. Grimes breeds a very eclectic crowd so I get the feeling that a lot of her fans that came out to see her, resonate with the album which made the evening all the more special for everyone.

As soon as the anticipation reached it’s brink, a taped recording of the mini classical pop composition, “laughing and not being normal” played. One of Grimes’ relatively new-ish dancers, danced to the piece and opened the set on a high note. Grimes came out wearing something that can only be described as “Mad Max: Fury Road” meets mad scientist. Needless to say, she looked fucking awesome. After the newly refurbished “Realiti” from Art Angels was performed, the recognizable synth of “Genesis” began to ring through the Expo Hall. As the beats began to drop, there was not a still body in the room. Although Grimes is famous for being a literal solo act, she was accompanied by two dancers and fellow artist, HANA, worked as a background singer. It made for a much fuller stage and gave Grimes the chance to move about the stage and interact with fans more than she would have been able to do if she was alone.

The set list was a good mix between her two most recent albums, the experimental synth-pop album, Visions (2012) and the more art-y, straightforward pop album, Art Angels (2015). It seemed like every song she played was a fan favorite. Before “Flesh Without Blood” she was going to ask the crowd to dance, but said “ya’ll are prutty active, so just keep doing that.” The crowd followed her small demand and danced harder to each and every song. My favorite song of the night was “Venus Fly.” I could nearly feel the estrogen in the air as all of my ladies in the room screamed “why you looking at me?”

I’ve never seen Grimes play guitar on stage, and yeah she’s not Annie Clarke, but she doesn’t need to be! For a music enthusiast like myself, it’s a treat to see such an artistic solo artist to play, sing, and produce live music on stage. I’ve never seen anything quite like it.

The set was kept to a short 12 songs plus an “encore.” I use “encore” loosely because Grimes informed the crowd that she can’t do encores because once she leaves the stage “she’s too nervous to come back on.” I feel you, Grimes. The encore and final song of the night was “Kill V. Maim.” With the flashing lights and the insanely catchy pre-chorus (“B-E-H-A-V-E…”), the audience was sent home buzzed from an energy high.

As soon as Grimes’ set came to an end a familiar tune called “Let’s Go Crazy” began to play and the crowd danced & sang to pay tribute to the beloved Prince. It was magical ending to a wild night.

they had a two months break. TWO BLOODY MONTHS. what have they done? writing for the new album? ace. partying? ok. drinking smoothies? that’s healthy. playing golf? fresh air, nice. what they haven’t done is REHEARSING FOR THEIR TOUR SUPPORTING THE ALBUM FOUR. FOUR. YOU KNOW THE FOURTH ALBUM, yeah. the fans put some much on the no control project, we did everything we could and we fucking succeeded and THEY CANT EVEN ADD ONE SONG, THE FAVORITE SONG?

that’s being unprofessional. that’s thinking they’re above pleasing their fans. do they realise how expensive their tickets are? do they? obviously not because if it were the case they would do everything to please the audience.

and don’t fucking tell me they’re going to the change the setlist for the US leg. I DONT GIVE A SHIT. american fans have everything and they’re not fucking american, they are bloody british and irish, who the fuck are they kidding.

enough.
