07-20MaintenanceMaintenance at TIF2016
As was their original goal to appear at TOKYO IDOL FESTIVAL 2016 in some form or another, they are appearing at TIF! But due to the fact that they got 30 minutes at TIF and they have so far only one song, they have gathered other Ex-Idoling!!! members' groups to join in. During their latest Snack Umeko special, they called around and asked Booing!!!, Magical Punchline and even 'Bitter Chocolate', which was only to be a one-off theater group.
They will perform at TIF on the 2nd day (8/6) at 16h30 at Smile Garden stage.
