I'm going to their concert together with my cousin Elisa. Still asking around who wants to come along with us. Some of my friends want to go real badly too, it's going to be so awesome!
To me, An Cafe can be considered important. It's one of the very first J-rock bands I listened to frequently and they kinda 'introduced' me to lots and lots of other J-bands! Even though I hadn't listen to their music anymore when I started to listen to the more 'dark' J-bands, they are still the roots of my J-rock fandom I once had ^^ And even now J-rock is still my favorite of few music genre I listen to. I can't wait to finally see them!
Is anyone else going to one of their concerts?
