WHEN I LOOK AT THE STARS...


Three awesome gigs in six days! It all begins with Switchfoot tomorrow night at the Max Pavilion which promises to be frenetic evening of modern rock pyrotechnics. Switchfoot's three major label albums viz. The Beautiful Letdown, Nothing is Sound and Oh! Gravity are all essential listening for anyone remotely interested in the rock scene in the 2000s. Switchfoot's signature sound is crunchy, melodic and informed with the right 80s influences i.e. The Police and U2. Not only that but this "sweaty" American rock band will be supported by our very own, The Fire Fight and West Grand Boulevard, who no doubt will punch above their own weight. Expecting a hi-energy workout!


Come Saturday and it's the launch of one of the finest Singaporean albums of all time as B-Quartet will bring its cool jazz-rock-pop hybrid to the Playden. I understand that the gig is virtually sold out and I intend to be there early to snag a front row view. Listen, you better be there for the happening event of February 2008 and if not, make sure at least that you are in possession of Tomorrow is our Permanent Address. C'mon!

To top it all off on Monday, it's the fabulous Police at the Indoor Stadium. I've waited for 28 years to watch the Police live and believe me it's gonna be worth it even if I know that maybe they're past their prime - just look at the pix... Still, it's gonna be electric to listen to some of my all-time favourite songs - Don't Stand So Close To Me, Message in a Bottle et al.
Can hardly wait... reviews to come...

... and there's more...
