RTW8 Report

When we arrived at the so-called Secret Garden, we managed to catch the act of three College Band Search winners: Sharpshooter, Harvesting Space Sounds, and err, I think Dance To The Radio. Sorry if I am wrong. I did not pay much attention to them. Hoho. Harsh.

But I am very impressed with Harvesting Space Sounds because they had some influence of Muse in their sound and their vocalist. Congratulations Harvesting Space Sounds, you now have a fan here. Ahaa. (Not that they DON'T HAVE ANY fans yet!) Anyway, anyone found their Myspace yet? I haven't...

One disappointment is (as usual) the bands which performed did not go according to the schedule. After the opening acts by College Band Search winners, they were suppose to kick off with Estrella. But they started with Upon Arrival, which disappointed ME MOST. Huhu.

As usual, I'd like to make a few notes here about the bands that has performed. Not all will be mentioned. Those not mentioned, either I think they were O-K, or I did not watch them because someone had to get a pair of new slippers after his got ripped off during a serious mosh pit! Nahh, I'm just kidding, we got stuck in a crowd jam at the entrance and someone carelessly stepped on his slippers causing it to rip off. Hua3~

Upon Arrival
They are now OFFICIALLY in my list of BANDS I DON'T LIKE. Enough said.

Zip Zieller
Not bad. Impressed me, although the vocalist was screaming. At least, not as bad as Upon Arrival (sorry guys!).

They stole the spotlight (it's only a metaphor, it was still daylight then, hehe), and left us all wanting for more. I wouldn't say it's the best of RTW8, but we all enjoyed it.

I missed about two (or maybe three) songs because of a terrible crowd jam at the entrance. They started right after a break, and since many of us went out of the secret garden, we had to go through a retarded security check before we could get in back. Anyway, Sam was good. Ahaa, I never said he was lousy, have I? Heee... Ok la, I have to be fair, THEY were AWESOME. Some talented youngsters I tell ya..

Koffin Kanser
I know I was pretty harsh in my previous review during their performance at KAMI The Gig. Either they have read my blog (like I am ANY famous) and decided not to scream so much, or the vocalist SIMPLY decided, well, let's bring in Republic of Brickfields and make HAPPY songs for the crowd today! Yeahh, it was WEIRD. He screamed (more like yelling) for ONE song, and then they were just playing instrumental music to the crowd. No more screaming, and that was it. Next band!
* I bet fans who had started FIVE mosh pits then were disappointed too.

Bittersweet/The Times/Estranged/The Otherside Orchestra
All were bringing good music on stage. Bravo guyz!

HATE them. Need I say more?

One Buck Short
They have so much experience, so they know their stuff pretty well. By the way, I did not SEE them perform. I was just LISTENING to them from a distance. We were a lil tired then, and thought we'd just listen to them from the car parked outside of the Secret Garden. And even from a distance, we know they are giving a good show.

I've heard them before and I never really liked them. So, I don't have much say about them but according to Ammar, he's disappointed. Hmm.

By the way, I heard there was a slight hitch when Radhi performed. Something about his unbuttoned shirt? Too bad I missed their performance due to unforeseen circumstances (hint:slippers). Heh.

Ohh, and I love the MC. He was a joke himself. No offense dude, I'm simply making a point to say, you're a natural at cracking stupid, laid back, unintentional jokes!

* did not snap any picture from RTW8 to prove you my existence at the venue. heh.
* i have a dooodolls now! and it has yet been named.
