One more live report to write! On Sunday night, April and I went to see exist+trace again. The live was at Shibuya Milkyway. This was another multi-artist show, and exist+trace was one of five bands that played that night. This report will be a shorter one, since the setlist was smaller.
April and I were unsure what order the bands were playing in, so we impatiently waited around and tried to guess if our girls would be next on stage. Before the show and between sets, the venue was playing the live action Dragonball movie (which up until this point, I had forgot even existed) on a screen in front of the stage. April and I tried to amuse ourselves by talking about how bad the movie was as we waited. It was a small live, so we were quite close to the front of the stage again. We moved up to the second row by the time exist+trace took the stage.
There were three bands that played before exist +trace. All of them were male bands with female vocalists. Unfortunately, none of them were particularly interesting. They weren't bad, they were just lacking a certain something (and I'm not just saying that because I was impatient for exist+trace to hit the stage). That made waiting around less enjoyable than it could have been. It was all worth it when the girls finally took the stage though!
They played a six song set this time. A new intro played, and the girls took the stage. They started off with "Diamond" (the supposed title of one of their new songs). I noticed right away that though her hair is still black, Omi has gone back to her usual spiky hairstyle! This made me happy because I feel like it suits her the best.
"Honey" was the second song of the set. I adore this song every time and I always sing and dance along. This time I had a moment with Jyou! I was standing right in front of her and she must have seen me singing along because all the sudden she made eye contact with me and sang part of the second verse to me! *fans self* That was definitely the highlight of the night.
Jyou and Miko did MCs about the upcoming lives and then the band played two more of the brand new songs. Still not sure about their official names. I feel like the fans are still trying to decide on the best furi for the new songs because it seems to change up a little each time.
The last two songs were "RAZE" and "Signal". I was a bit surprised that most of the set was made-up of the brand new songs, but I feel like playing all high energy songs it was a good choice for this live.
I don't have a lot else to say about this show, other than it was awesome as usual. It can be fun to go to these smaller shows because it's a good opportunity to get close to the stage, but it always makes me wish the setlist was longer!
