Here’s Hydra’s review of the multi-artist concert that took place on the first night of PMX 2009. Pictures are by our photographer, cat, except for the UchuSentai NOIZ pics, which are by Valerie Durham and JRockRevolution.com. –Mike
The concert began with Ai Cherie, who brought her angelic voice to American audiences for the first time. Ai Cherie, born in Los Angeles, had just recorded her debut single “Kiss, Kiss, Kiss Ai Cherie,” which was scheduled for Japanese release in December.
The concert from Ai Cherie was unplugged, with guitar performed by the guitarist Yoshi from the local band Cherry. Ai Cherie sang 3 songs for the audience, each performed with passion and power.
