Wow, the festival was a lot of fun!
I was really impressed by Noiyscroak's band Tekaru and spend a lot of time chatting with Hideki Sakamoto and the others. They're really cool guys and they also played two short acoustic sets out on the lawn. They had three t-shirts on sale, of which two can be bought from their webstore. So I bought the third exclusive one. I also bought a wristband and some sort of facial cream (don't ask me why they have their own brand of facial cream). I don't buy physical CD's for myself at all, but since the Tekaru Technical album isn't available online, I bought it and got all the members autographs (which I also don't care about). If you want it Carl, I can send it to you along with the other stuff. They we're really glad and gave me a free sample of the Time Travelers OST. It's the normal OST, but there's a sticker with the text "sample" above the barcode. They also gave me two wristbands, a Noiyscroak sticker and this thing you wave with your hand towards your face when it's hot. I don't what you call it, but everyone has one in Japan. It has the Tekaru logo and some artwork on it.
I mentioned MAGFest to Tekaru and asked if they have interest in playing shows abroad. Yes, but one of them gets panic attacks on flights, so it might be a little bit difficult. I mentioned MAGFest is in early January and they are looking for artists to play live.
The only exclusive CD on sale was from Heavy Metal Raiden. I bought the CD and the official guide book to the concert. I asked all the sales guys if there we're any exclusive CDs only on sale during this event. Heavy Metal Raiden was the only one. By the way, they played an amazing show.
I saw this white guy with a JDK band t-shirt and instantly knew he was a cool guy. I don't know why I didn't talk with him at first, but later he saw me and mentioned that he and his friend was going to DJ later. I didn't see many DJ gigs, but his was the best one. It turned out he was Justin Pfeiffer from OSV! I knew his name, but not what he looked like or anything else.
