Rockaway


welcome to rockaway (ignore the beer advert)

So today is Father's day..thanks abah for providing the other half of me..ha-ha (bad joke)..
but anyhow i wanted to tell you guys bout my spectecular, fun exciting yesterday..i went to this gig at Capsquare (dont blame urself for not knowing cause i only found out bout Capsquare yesterday)..a gig to celebrate mainly One Buck Short for doing something with Jack n Jill, think it was a drink..it was called Rockaway (creative gileRRR kan?haha)

i arrived at 3 and it was hot, crowded and wreaked of concentrated sweat..yes, all the ingredients of a good gig..the school kids were as rowdy as ever..the oldtimers just sat gracefully by the stairs, prefering not to join the crowd but instead just watched and absorbed the atmosphere from afar..
so as i came, there was this hardcore band playing, and i was like WTF, if ur gonna do a hardcore number, then sing it in english la, dont sing it in chinese..so with a couple of friends, we head as up front to the stage as we can..and finally that chinese HC band was over..wahoo..

ive realised a really carzy/unique, call it whatever you want kinda trend which these hardcore kids are doing..its a new kind of mosh which i am not aware of..i dont know what they are doing exactly but they do this kind of motion which is like a combination of pogo and backstroking..seriously it was off the hook..never seen anything like that in my whole life..

but due to their lack of understanding of the english language or due to the sound system (which i dim totally fine), i missed out on their ceremonial "wall of death"..its like this totally mindblowing act where the kids will divide into to opposite groups and on the count of three, run full speed ahead towards each other..GILE kn?but ive checked out a few on youtube and it is a phenomenon..fuhhh!
BITTERSWEET was next..and i was like so freaking happy..

as they played i went into the mosh pit, smacked some guys in the face, and kicked some in the ass, and got the same in return..the feeling of freeeedom is so hard to describe..i dont know why but after jumping around like an idiot and constantly bumping into some other sweaty guys, i felt content, and free and light with all my burdens gone:))

another fun part about gigs is that you can "accidentally" bump into a girl and act like its all cool..seriously i dont do those kind of stuff but if it happens then it happens..i have no intention wotsoevr*whistling*..

then after bittersweet, there a few other bands that i listened to before heading home..bunkface performed OK je, the times were grrreat, casandra..i dint really pay any attention to them, estranged just layu, 7 collar..except for the fact that i took a photo with Duan (the vocalist) they were just average..i left kind of earlt..so i missed out on all the other good bands such as the couple, one buck short, pesawat..and a few others..dammit..


a special shoutout to Miss Farah and Miss Syida for allowing me to tag along..had a blast..thank you(s)..

Okay. I kinda got the idea who 'Anonymous' is. Haha.

p/s: I've never been to anything that requires me to gasak with profusely-sweating teenagers (with or without bad BO). Yuck!

p/p/s: Not 'dim', but 'deem'. Or 'deemed'. I'm sure you already know that. I'm guessing it's a typo? ;)

En. amirul said...
