button ジ・エメラルズ @ SXSW/Japan Nite US Tour 2008

- イントロ -

The Emeralds
 2005年のSXSWで出会ってから、実はひそかに追いかけていたこのバンド「The Emeralds」。日本ではまだまだ知名度が少ない彼らだけど、いざその土俵をアメリカに変えれば、ステージ前はキャーキャー言う女の子や本気でモッシュしてくるファンやエメラルズタオルをブンブン振り回す人ですごいのだ。


 そんな彼ら、ルックスは黒のスーツに日替わり花柄シャツのまるで歌舞伎町ホストのような?でも音楽を武器に世界中でしかも日本語早口でロックンロールしてる三人。今回はmagカメラマンのsamが3月中旬に行われた東のニューヨークから西のロサンゼルスまで8日間で7都市を回る怒濤の「Japan Nite US Tour 2008」に同行してほぼ24時間毎日一緒に過ごし、ありとあらゆる角度から追いかけたレポートをごらんください。
