The Weekly Quickie: ALSDEAD, Asagi, Matenrou Opera, CLOWD, The GazettE, The Thirteen, Dir en grey

I’d like to start off this week with a couple of announcements that made me personally squeal with happiness.  First off, the return of ALSDEAD…sort of.  The group, which went on hiatus in October, have announced a live performance, ALSDEAD presents Zaora, on April 29 at Takadanobaba AREA.  According to vocalist, Maki, this is NOT, however, a comeback live.  The members will also be participating in two seperate sessions that night, Maki and Nikki in one and Yousuke and Shin in the other, along with members of DOAK, Nocturnal Bloodlust and Far East Dizain.  The show should be an interesting one, for sure.
