Finally, the reason why I would’ve paid for the Sunburst Music Festival a certain 15th of March 2008 – Incubus!

Brandon Boyd!

Jose Pasillas!

They started with Quicksand and Kiss To Send Us Off from Light Grenades, then skipped back to Morning View with Nice To Know You and Wish You Were Here, and played one last Light Grenades track, Anna Molly.

DJ Kilmore!

Mike Einziger!

You want some real Mike Patton-esque stuff?

Me: YEAH!!!

And then they took a trip down funk metal lane, down my favorite S.C.I.E.N.C.E. album, with Vitamin and My Favorite Things!

Not everyone here is that f-ed up and cold“, we all sang along to The Warmth, uncut of course. They also played Drive off the Make Yourself album… which was a song Brandon said he wouldn’t play the last time Incubus was in Malaysia. So he finally did. They also played what I guess would be Ben’s retooled Are You In?.

Brandon appeared with a guitar for Pistola!

Have some feedback.

Uh, I think he overdosed.

Continuing the series of A Crow Left Of The Murder songs was a chilled out Talk Shows On Mute and the solo-rific Sick Sad Little World.

Oh I’d also like to wish happy birthday to Ben Kenney.

Yeah, this former guitarist of The Roots.

And as a present to the ladies, Brandon took off his shirt!

What next but staple song Megalomaniac?

Encore! The crowd screamed for Stellar and they played it.

One of my favorite returns to the old metal style was Circles.

Mike on the pipa for the smooth-flowing Aqueous Transmission. I’m not sure if I remember DJ Kilmore doing a little Magic Medicine before this song though.

Alright show’s over. Have a drum stick!

And so in total, they played 2 songs from S.C.I.E.N.C.E., 3 songs from Make Yourself, 5 songs from Morning View, 4 songs from A Crow Left Of The Murder and 3 songs from Light Grenades. A good balance, I’d say.

The last time they were in Malaysia, they played 4 songs from S.C.I.E.N.C.E., 2 songs from Make Yourself, 5 songs from Morning View and 7 songs from A Crow Left Of The Murder. Oh, and Pantomime. 8 songs were played at both concerts, which was great that they gave us a fresh setlist!

    Hullo my laberty leopard! I can see where the inspiration for your hair comes from! Hahaha!

    I still remember drowning in sweat in the little mosh pit the last time Incubus hit KL. Not the most pleasant experience, considering it was OTHER PEOPLE’S sweat!

    i’d probably get stoned for saying this in certain vicinities, but i actually walked out of this part of the festival. my little sis stayed in 3rd row. not to say i don’t like em… i just couldn’t endure moshpit conditions after 7 straight hours of craziness before. i admired the show from afar at least. and aqueous transmission was such a surprising but awesome end to the set.

    your pix by the way are freakin’ amazing. so many angles, and so up-close. do you have the power to transform into like, a camera-wielding bee or something?

    Zebby Jayby: Hmmm, it does look like my hair… but my influence was Anthony Kiedis and those guys from Extreme LOL.

    disco-very: Uhhh, which vicinity is this I go to, to get stoned?

    I have a long instrument, and I know how to use it! Though transforming into a bee would be cool. No, wait, a eagle. Yeah, eagle-eye’s view.

    hanna!!! I remember when I first popped in their Make Yourself CD and I was blown away by every other song besides Drive! This was when Drive was hot. Back then I was exclusively a RHCP fan.
