I don't follow Jpop very closely, (my main exposure comes from J-drama theme songs LOL!) so I don't know much about local events, but I think there is a upcoming concert by an artist named Ai, June 22 in Redondo Beach.

Ai will perform in a benefit concert – only her second appearance in the U.S. – on Sunday, June 22, 7 p.m., at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center. Ticket information is available by calling Go For Broke at (310) 222-5713.

As the summer and Nisei Week approaches there may be more local Jpop events announced. You can maybe try JACCC or the Rafu Shimpo. Also, I would try the L.A. area Japanese record and book stores, they should have better information on upcoming events.

That's all I can think of right now... If I hear of anything else, I'll be sure to let you know.

Re: Events!


Though its not really J-pop (and though the date has already passed) I know the Yoshida Brothers had a concert in LA on May 14th at the El Rey Theater. I was dying to go but things came up so I wasn't able to. I also had heard that the J-rock singer Miyavi had a concert on May 16th. Then again, neither of these artists are really J-pop.

Like bubu said, a lot of the Japanese bookstores and music stores in Little Tokyo or the South Bay will have posters or information on any possible future concerts or appearances.
