19th May 2012: Fireflies And Something Something, at The Bee, Publika. Two emcees and Faiz Rosli (far right), from the original bunch of people who ran Fireflies And Something Something back at Jamasia.
The ever individualistic So I’m Jenn.
Silent Scenery, post-rock.
Ryota Katayama, with a unique melancholic voice.
Free Deserters rock out.
Sheryl Goh, most often known as the female vocalist for An Honest Mistake.
The Metaphor brings on instrumental rock.
Charis Ow, YouTube superstar and blogger.
Lightcraft! I haven’t seen this British indie rock band in ages.
There was a long intermission and a change of crowd. Seen on the stage then was a beautiful violin bass!
It was Samurai! They brought a massive crowd of Japanese fans.
The dude on the right is Hiroaki’s father – and boy can he shred! (Hiroaki was from Throne Away, Tokyo Blue and a few other bands I don’t remember in Malaysia.)
Reza Salleh was next. First time I’d ever see just him and Melina on bass – but what an interesting sound that was, to hear just guitar and bass.
He also sang Utada Hikaru – First Love.
Later in the night I ended up at Mezze.
It was the Az Samad Trio!
There was a lot of jazz going on that night. Here’s Kevin!
The place had very cool directional light. All shots up to this point on the Sony Alpha NEX-5, with the LA-EA1 adapter, and the Opteka 85mm F1.4.
On the 21st of May 2013 I was at The Bee again, this time for The Songwriter’s Showcase #3, organized by Very Imaginative People Enterprise.
Jasemaine of VIP Enterprise is also a photographer.
I didn’t catch any of their names this time.
I think she was singing when I suddenly heard accompaniment.
Ian Chow on harmonica!
The Two Chinese Who Barely Made It. Cool band name!
I didn’t know what they were saying in Mandarin – I only understand very little spoken Cantonese and cannot read Chinese.
…stretches over two pictures.
Shots from this night with the Sony Alpha 77 and the Opteka 85mm F1.4.
