Last night popular local band elements played a superb show to a packed house at Urbanguild. And I’m absolutely gutted that the first time I get to see them is also the last! Sadly their original drummer Sanjyo Toru passed away last January, and I believe another member is now based in Tokyo, so last night was their way of celebrating and saying goodbye to all their fans and friends. I only recorded one video this time as I wanted to enjoy myself – and besides most of the time all I could see was this:
Fortunately, fellow Kyoto blogger Nils Ferry was there helping to film the whole event with some proper equipment. Later on elements will be producing a DVD, and you can email them at email@example.com if you’d like a copy of that. Anyway, I had a great time dancing about and headbanging like a loon to their music. It was a rare kind of awesome. It’s certainly a pity they are splitting up – but max tells me that the remaining members will still continue making music together in one form or another. I look forward to hearing more about that! Here are a few more pictures of the night that I managed to take between the flailing arms and sweaty bodies:
