Look what I found! Clips from the B-Quartet album launch.

Bani Haykal on his trusty xaphoon, Adel on that sexy Fender Jaguar (American Vintage ‘62?), and Kevin Drew. It was an invite-only workshop that Esplanade organised for local musicians. TODAY’s Mayo Martin has the scoop.

Ultra mega secret hidden password for Mosaic Friends discount for Broken Social Scene

<input type="hidden" name="pw0" 
value="^BSS\d{0}$|^Bss\d{0}$|^bss\d{0}$" />

Well done Sistic!

edit: err, basically when booking online there’s a field that says Password 1 (not your Sistic password) and you just enter “BSS”. This is if you chose the Mosaic Friends category 1 or 2 ($90/$70) tickets in the first place.

Anyway there was no mailer from the Esplanade regarding either BSS or Mosaic containing this password which I am supposed to receive as a Mosaic Friend, and I’ve read about other fans just paying the full price rather than fight Sistic’s shitty system. Seems like a convenient thing to forget so they can pocket $10 more on each cat 1/2 ticket.

TICKETS WENT ON SALE YESTERDAY OMG

anybody wants to buy together so we can have a little Tumblr party

Cat 3 stalls on the first floor is good value for money ($40 for students/NSF and access to the stage if they don’t stop people from dancing up the aisles)

Setup for tonight&#8217;s amberhaze + sonicbrat show, the boy who sees with stones. Tatami mats for the audience to watch the visuals on the ceiling, and all those keys! I&#8217;d kill to be there right now. More peeks inside the recital studio from g himself.

Uncommon Fields sees B-Quartet launching their 2nd full-length album Conformity Has Replaced Consciousness. Formed in 1999, the six-man act has been known to incorporate jazz, folk and rock into their unique genre of music.

The band shares their new ethos: &#8220;The music invites listeners back to an intersection where compulsions inform us of every misdirection conjured for tastebuds to follow. Here we are, back at the confluence of eitherness, sitting above rooftops breathing for a better morning in the coming years. This is consciousness reinterpreted, misinterpreted, interpolated and fundamentally reintroduced for the listeners, not the audience.&#8221;

Expect stunning musical passages by the musically intuitive band and intelligent, yet evocative lyrics by the spoken word poet frontman.

Date: Sunday 11 April 2010
Time: 2130
Venue: The Esplanade Recital Studio
Tickets are going for S$25.00 at all SISTIC outlets from 25th Feb

Forget the big words. Bani Haykal and friends call themselves a post-apocalyptic rock quartet and you won&#8217;t regret finding out what that means come April&#8230; This season is really shaping up in terms of potential weekends spent rocking out.

Haven’t been posting much in the way of local music, so I’m just here to say Amateur Takes Control rocked the Esplanade tonight. They did a couple of new songs, some weird math rock vibes and Adel mumbled something about post-punk. I guess the next EP will be interesting.

Unfortunately I left the house too late to catch Everybody Loves Irene (all the way from Jakarta), and I couldn’t stay for West Grand’s gig at the recital studio. Too many things happening at once!

I would complain about my lack of gig kakis (The E only went with me today because of one ATC song), but pretty soon I won’t have the time for any gigs at all. RACHAEL FREAKING YAMAGATA is coming exactly 31 days after I enlist.

they were great, but I wish they had talked to us more instead of saying “Thank you VERY much!” after each (immaculately performed) song. But their setlist was epic, thorough, and I got lots and lots of goosebumps.
Hey that looks familiar (edit: have to click through to see it)
