BandKuest and other stories

I’m such a cat. I don’t come when you call. I only come when I hear food being served.

This week is turning out to be a hit-the-ground-running week. Along with a couple of follow-ups I need to do for an article and an event-packed weekend, my new colleague and I just got assigned to something that will come out in our newly-revamped thesundaypost. Fortunately, the subject matter is something I’ve covered before for another article, so we hope to finish the preliminaries before our day off in the middle of a busy week, then come back on Friday to write it.

There is some informative talk on Friday morning for reporters, which will of course, eat into the little time we have already. Fortunately, I don’t need to go review a movie this week because I already saw another one I can do. So we’ll have the afternoon, and if absolutely necessary, Saturday morning.

To prove that I can be such a Libra, I am satisfied that the scales are in balance. To prove that I’m also a realist, I don’t expect balance to last.

Saturday night will see me at the Travilion to catch the Funny Rabbits for an interview. BandKuest is on Sunday, 5pm @ Old Courthouse. Tickets are available at the door for RM10. Go see! JJ’s band Litbox got into the Grand Finals!

I like the above photo of them. They didn’t realise I was there, but they fanned out nicely for that shot. They got their job cut out for them that day… they had to pick 7 bands out of the 60 that signed up! I don’t think the night ended till past 1am!

In all, there will be 12 bands vying for the top prize this Sunday. Admittedly, most of the bands who tried out didn’t sound anywhere near great, but the semi-finalists should have something special to offer this weekend.

I gotta shoot a day version of the above photo this Sunday. Ducky and I will see you there!
