On December 26 2013, Ikebukuro’s Edge played host to a rather unusual show. Headliners NINJAMAN JAPAN invited the members’ other bands along for the night, showcasing different styles both visually and musically.

Guitarist Daishi’s band [MU:] are moving towards their second year together and provided a very eclectic set which continues to expand in scope as the band continues to build up an interesting and varied song base. ROKKYUU last caught up with [MU:] six months ago for their 1st anniversary show so it was a great chance to see how the band have progressed since June.

Making a dramatic entrance in their iridescent scarlet outfits, [MU:] rocked straight into “GOD CHILD” and got the crowd air punching and dancing along enthusiastically.  As well as playing more established numbers, the band also aired new song “Hiki ryuu no kishi no monogatari”.

As [MU:] look forward  towards their 2nd anniversary, ROKKYUU will be keeping both camera and a pen handy to make you’re in on that action!

Set List

  1. GOD CHILD
  2. Esperanto
  3. Subaru
  4. Akaki ryuu no kishi no monogatari
  5. CARNAVAL
  6. ENCOUNTER⇔INFINITY
