Stereopath: An Indiependant Splash

Posted by kenchill. Categories Events, Music

The first show for the Stereopath event series that night consisted of Bus Company, John’s Mistress and Deja Voodoo Spells. As it was for the Stereopath event, it was also the first major gig for Bus Company. John’s Mistress will be playing for the second time in Laundry, the first time being just a couple of weeks back.

The night started at 10pm as usual, and there was a slight crowd at the venue. Not jam packed, but just nice. Not enough to fill the front of the stage though. Bus Company had the first slot and performed a really solid set. The lead vocalist (and guitarist) has great showmanship, and this is a big plus for the band. They also had a keyboardist, where the keyboard was supported with 2 stools instead of the usual keyboard stand (it looked really weird). All in all, a great and tight set, but the vocals weren’t really that clear.

John’s Mistress took over next and played their usual plethora of old hits including their Japanese song. I think they managed to fit in one new song as well. Well, a couple of Bus Company supporters left, reducing the crowd count.

The big hitter for the night was Deja Voodoo Spells, but the crowd count became even lesser as John’s Mistress’ fans left after their performance. Anyhow, they managed to deliver a rock solid performance which included some songs from their debut album, I Am What I Am, Rock n Roll (their new single), a drum solo, and a bass solo (Doraemon theme song included).

By the way, we managed to get some nicer shots thanks to our Sony A200 DSLR camera. We just got a new Minolta Maxxum 50mm/f1.7 lens which might just get us some even nicer indoor gig shots, wait and see guys. In the meantime, enjoy the photos in the gallery!

    I get this cold jolt of excitement when I see a Sony at a gig! What more, already prepared with a 50mm! :) (I usually lend it to whoever comes unprepared.

    Oooh and nice shots! Get closer with the 50mm since Laundry Bar lets you.

    Haha, those photos were shot with the kit SAL1870 as I haven’t acquired the Minolta 50mm yet.

    Let’s see what gig will be next!
