The reason why I advertise these gigs is because that might actually help instead of telling people how they missed a great performance. And yes, I’m going for all of them. I’ve also been roped in to take pictures for Irene (who will then pass it to the New Straits Times newspaper) so if you wanna appear in the newspaper, look for me and I’ll make you famous. It might help if you looked like you were rocking out. Yes I admit that my digital camera’s picture quality isn’t that great but it was used to take that big mugshot of Frequency Cannon in NST. (Well the photographer ran out of batteries so he borrowed mine…)

The only shaky plans are the acoustic guitar workshop (until I master the art of teleportation) and the jazz fest (since I’ve already seen Cosmic Funk Express and have to take pictures…) Why can’t they have the jazz fest clumped up into a nice Friday night like last year’s, when all the bands I wanted to see all played the same night?
