For Setsuka Fans
Since we're on the topic of Soul Calibur, I attended the J-Pop Summit Festival in San Francisco Japantown this past weekend and watched uber cool group Layla Lane perform. For the first half of their performance, Valerie Stern wore a sweet kimono that reminded me of another blonde in Japanese formal wear Setsuka from Soul Calibur.

Here are two of several clips I shot. These were taken with the compact video powerhouse Sony HX9V in 1080p 60p mode. The quality is pretty nice. You might have to be a Vimeo plus member to download the clips, but if you are able to, I highly recommend you copy the file and play it on your PlayStation 3 for the full experience. The wind started whipping up so sorry for the noises. I created a DIY windscreen for next time.

This is one is shorter, but has a section where Valerie is singing in Japanese which she seems to do for about half of their songs.
