I know this community has been dead for a while, but I thought I'd post this.

Ayako and Shinamon will do three acoustic lives at three malls to promote the new single "Kaze ni naritai", a Tetsuro Yoshida cover. The song is also used for the film "Kekkon Shiyou Yo." The first event took place last Thursday evening at TheMall Sendai (yes, that's the actual name of the mall). Since I'm not too far from Sendai, I went to the event.

The live event was fairly short, only about thirty minutes, but Ayako and Shinamon are great performers, talking to the crowd between songs, and even making people pause in their shopping to stand around until the show ended. Even on the floor above us, they stopped to listen. I was quite proud at that. I got there five minutes late, and they had -just- finished "Oh My Darlin'" as I approached. I was a little sad at that as it was the song that got me into them. The rest of the songs they played were songs I didn't know (and of course Kaze ni naritai, which i hadn't heard before that night), but I do know the last one, a piano ballad, was called "Day by Day" and I hope it's on the new album. I really liked the performance.

As I thought, I was the only foreigner there and I stood out like a sore thumb. I felt pretty self-conscience, haha, but I got in line the autograph line afterward, because, I mean, hey, when next will I get this chance? Shinamon was the first to sign. She shook my hand and thanked me for coming and supporting them. And Ayako did the same, only she held on to my hand and said something in Japanese that was so fast it fried my brain. I couldn't formulate a japanese sentence -at all-. So, I must have had this stunned expression on my face like, "I have no idea what you just said!" So she asked me if I was okay with Japanese -in Japanese- first, and then in English, which I appreciated and found adorable.

And that's about it. I got my cd, two complimentary postcards, and then I was free to grab some dinner, do a little shopping, and head home in time to get to bed at a decent hour.

I didn't take any pictures with my camera OR phone as others were, but I -should- have.

Anyway, the new album, as of yet untitled, is scheduled for release on March 5th. Keep an eye out for it!
