Yokohama, Japan — March 10th, 2011 — The Japan Nite tour is about to
take the US by storm once again, and HearJapan is excited to offer up
an exclusive sampler of music from the bands!

HearJapan News

This nine track album has music from eight of the bands on the tour.
This year the selection has a rough and raw feel featuring punk, hard
rock and stomping electro from the likes of White White Sisters,
Vampillia, Suck Piggy, Ydestroyde, DJ TERAOKA AND THE REVOLUTION and
Lolita 18. The smooth grooves of sonodaband and ZUZUKANASISTERS serve
as perfect counterpoint. The entire compilation will grab listeners by
the scruff of the neck and never let go. Just like you would expect at
the live show!
Fans of the crazy underground Japanese scene might be excited to know
that Vampillia is made up of a large number of big names, like
Chikada, the drummer of World's end girlfriend. There is also drummer
Tatsuya Yoshida from Ruins and Korekyojinn. Then there is Toyohito
Yoshida from exBOREDOMS. In total they have three singers, three
string players, two drummers and more!
Japan Nite is the longest running US tour to exclusively feature
Japanese bands. They always have an excellent line-up of bands both
old and new, known and unknown. You will find a lot to love, so don’t
pass up the chance to catch this exciting show!

New Group
Welcome to my group!
I hope lots of people find their way here!

I currently am working on getting the event "Live Like a Jrocker" Underway. All information about it below:

Do you have what it takes to be in character all day and all night? To mimic your person you're cosplaying as to the very core? Even when drunk?
Join the Live Like a Jrocker event and find out!
I have a list of many different Jrockers to roleplay as and the more people join, the more this'll become more awesome!
The event will cost around 50 bucks per person (Have to pay hotel rooms somehow!)
If 8 people come for sure, we will have 1 suite room and one regular room. For every 4 more people that join, I will have to rent more rooms, but only one suite. The suite room is where we'll have our party/gathering/Powow!
Unless someone would be willing enough to open up there home for the event, it would be way better! (No hotel rules)...
So if you're interested in joining, let me know!!

Posted in the "Ottawa Jrock Group" on facebook:

Ok, so we really don't know exactly what goes on in a jrockers life, but we can guess can't we?
My idea is, we find a place, whether it be someones house or if we get enough people, to rent out a hotel room.
We each choose a specific Jrocker (Ill have a list of jrockers to choose from below) to roleplay and dress up as. We must be strict and stay in character day and night!
Im sure with what list of jrockers Ill have for you to choose from, not all (personality wise) will get along (Ex: Miyavi and Mana. Might not be a good pair to have in one room XD) . Then there will be jrockers who will get along VERY well ;]

Note about fanservicing:
Some pairs don't quite work with each other so I have a rule, keep it within the band or with a band who is (Irl) actually friends with each other: Ex: MiyavixAn Cafe or MiyavixGackt OR within the same style Visual Kei and Oshare Kei: Ex: Dir en greyxGazette (Both VK) etc. Ill see about adding another Oshare Kei band.
There could also be a battle between Mana, Miyavi and Hyde to win over Gackt's love XD

This might contain alcohol! (Considering we know Jrockers love their alcohol)
Of course Ill be asking people to pitch in for food and drinks. Anyone with jrock cd's can bring it so we'll have a large variety of Jrock to play all night long.
And of course, if we end up renting a hotel room, Ill have to ask for you to pitch in to the cost, but Im hoping someone will open up their home for 2 days.
I hope to have this event sometime early next year in the spring, maybe even earlier. And of course, I will plan to have this event so that it will convenience all of you!
Video camera's are loved, camera's to take pics too while some of us may be drunk XD
So if you have anymore ideas to add to this, feel free to post them. And if you are interested in joining this, choose out of the list who you want to be.
If you have someone you want to be, but isn't listed, tell me and I might put em down on the list for you.
We don't need tons of people to join this event, even 5 people would be great!

List of Jrockers:

Dir en grey
Kyo: Sandra
Toshiya: Autumn
Kaoru: Melanie
Shinya: Julie

Gackt: Dustin Roy

Miyavi: Mony

Moi Dix Mois

An Cafe
Miku: Aria Rayne
Bou: Sonia


L'Arc en Ciel
Tetsu: Alex


Hide: Samantha

Hitsugi: Shadow

I know, I left some band members out. For now, until I see how many people are interested, if you want to be a certain jrocker and they're not listed, let me know and I'll consider adding them for you.
Most of you are of course maybe's. By the beginning of February Ill need to know if you plan on coming or not.

Note: Most of the people listed for a jrocker are put down as maybe's. so their spot is not garuntee'd!
If you'd like to be someone, but they are taken up by another person, and you can GARUNTEE you will come, I can remove them and put you down if they are a maybe.
