24th April 2010: Gundu Talent Night @ Gloria Jeans, Sunway Pyramid
Moe and I arrived damn early to Sunway Pyramid to avoid the traffic jam and parking issues. Met up with Ruzi, his brother, who in my opinion, looked almost similar to Moe and chilled at a mamak waiting for Haziq to come. Headed to Gloria Jeans at around 8pm to catch the first band inclusive of an awesome lead vocalist, Farah, who lent us her guitar later on in the night and didn't mind when Moe broke a string. HAHA. You rawk.
The first band was absolutely chilled, with nice lyrics and nice tunes, some quite country sounding. I enjoyed the one song called "She's Like Daggers", I remember getting goosebumps at some of the words. Nice stuff.
Then my band members, Aron, Nik and Gas arrived before Orkeska, who are a ska band (which I will be catching in Skafest!). I was entertained by these guys for more than just their performance, which obviously was toned down due to the equipments provided. When they sang "Monkeyman", I was laughing at the little boys who were climbing around and under their father's chair, and couldn't help smiling at the skinhead supporters of Orkeska enjoying away at the back. :) Nice stuff.
A few other bands like The Woo Hoo went on stage to perform too, and we were placed last set of the night. Freaking out because we had to spontaneously pull a last minute acoustic set, we just went on stage and slowed all our songs down. Ended up pretty alright with more positive then negative feedback. I still laugh when I think about how DANGDUT 'Insomnia' sounded because Gas tweaked the drums. HAHA. Cheers everyone for the support :)
I apologize for no pictures of our set, for Haziq is taking his time editing the pictures -_- NGUH! However, we do have one which Lufti kindly tagged us on. Yay.
Spent most of our time there fooling around and catching up with each other. T'was a nicely chilled out session. OH and I met Biggie a.k.a Big Show at Sunway! LOL! I had no idea he worked here. HAHAHAHA. Agak terkejut. Haha shank you for watching us, Biggayyy :)
Then headed to Hartamas and chilled with Ezzart and his friends before catching Ezzart jam at Black Widow, with conversations of mints, food and girly hair.
May not have been a perfect day, but Celine enjoyed it nonetheless.
25th April 2010: Doppelganger Open Mic @ Palms Grill, Skypark Airport
Moe the dayrider.
A simple day, not much to talk about. Headed to Subang Airport where I met up with Azza and Gas, followed later on by Azam, who was our photographer for the night, but like Haziq, is taking AGES WITH THE PICTURES, therefore we also do not have pictures for this show yet. GRRR.
Laughed as Azza totally kicked her boyfriend's ass at playing pool, and was surprised to see Kenet UxF and Pali at the venue too. They were there for Cynosure (who are awesome). Just had fun chilling, listening to Izzy Mohamed play a lovely acoustic set as Beatburns set up their instruments to play.
Our set was a short one, which we tried our best to keep sweet and soft; even Jasmine could sense we were restraining a lot from sounding as loud as we usually are. She's a cool lady, I like her. :) We played 3 songs, less Dangdut-ey this time round, and just had our fun on the teensy stage. Saw a long lost friend, John outside the area, with his band, Handle With Care, who were performing too.
Next up was Cynosure who never, ever fail to impress me with their songs like "Mimpi" and "Infunktuation". Nguh. Love them. And they were also nice enough to lend us their equipments when we realized a guitar amp was missing haha! I am always awed by their harmonies and the melodies. Gah. Nice show guys. :) Headed out to plummet Scott in the head for arriving late. Standard la, kot? xD
Chilled outside, laughed around, took pictures, and headed off to SS2 to have dinner with Ezzart, and Iddin and gang. Nice night. :)
Celine is proud to be part of Beatburns.
