After the incredible performances at the "Japan Nite Tour '08", in NYC at the Knitting Factory (3.16.08), ... much like last year's ... I was inspired to do some artwork based on one of the acts. This time it was for the 1st band up, the all new Japanese Girl Quartet Indies Act "SCANDAL!!" These fresh high-school grads opened the show right with their blend of high energy pop-rock tunes that got the crowd going immediately & all 4 of them were very talented & very cute!! I picked my fan-favorite Mami to base this art piece on, as she demonstrated some amazing guitar skills & handed me her guitar pick right after their set!! AWESOME!! ^_^
It was nice to have my friends & family join me for this event, Brian, Mike, Jeff, Jamie, & David made a unique experience even more enjoyable...
Bands performing were:
SCANDAL/THE EMERALDS/PETTY BOOKA/KETCHUP MANIA/DETROIT7/THE BEACHES
