Idol Spotlight Fresh Faces :Indie Fresh Faces Concert Special Vol 1
“Indie Fresh Faces Concert Special Vol 1”
For this episode of fresh faces Indie Idol spotlight I wanted to do something special and give you the Indie live treatment. Therefore, I have acted as producer/promoter in this case and put together lives from a range of artists to make my own PIH concert special, lol, what I like to call “Indie Fresh Faces Concert Special Vol 1”
So get your glow sticks, your free tickets and come with me as I take you to the live houses of Japan’s underground Idols. In Indie lives, you often have between 5-10 acts performing in one night. The smaller the number of groups the more songs they play, these groups often perform about five songs each or a 2-3 hr block of rented time total for all groups. Some shows groups have a staggered number of songs that grows larger the higher up the show you are listed to 8-10 songs.
For this special post I have selected seven groups from across Japan that we have not done a full feature on or they had just a little preview. I have arranged the groups in my own promoter’s hat order in a way to give you a feel of a live event with an opener up to a headline host, so please watch each group in order to get the full live experience, lol.

Please welcome to the Stage Tonight’s First Co-Headline unit
[they do mostly 48`s,H!P ,KARA, and other Major units covers as they don`t have much own stuff yet ,changes each live .This live it`s 48`s songs] They do a good job on their covers.
[Units without a fulltime songwriter do mostly cover sets as they are D.I.Y. Idols and everything is run by the group from song selections to making costumes to sale of tickets. They take what they can afford and make to sale and do their best ,until a label picks them up.]
