Last night was part two of Upfront gigs series after 65daysofstatic last Tuesday. It was The Vaccines, with The Rubens as their opening act.
And it was a blast!
The Rubens opened the show with some of their hits like 'My Gun' and 'Never Be The Same'. Reminded me of Raygun (where the hell is that band now?). They were alright and it's a good opening.
Compared to last Tuesday, the venue tonight was more crowded. Again, the atmosphere and the sound system at The Bee was outstanding. Cheers bzzzzz!
Around 10pm, there came The Vaccines. They started the set with 'No Hope' from their new album 'Come of Age', followed up by 'A Lack of Understanding' & 'I Always Knew'. The crowd started to look lively during 'Wreckin' Bar'.
The band continued with their hits like 'Teenage Icon', 'Wetsuit', 'If You Wanna', 'Tiger Blood' & 'Post Break-Up Sex'. They also played a couple of songs from their new album like 'Bad Mood' & 'Ghost Town' but the one I loved the most was 'Aftershave Ocean'; it sounded fresh and different compared to their other songs.
Towards the end, they gave us 'Blow It Up', 'All In White' & finally 'Norgaard', greeted with cheers and a little cute mosh from the energetic crowd.
All in all, I enjoyed this gig so much. They really rocked the house! Upfront @ The Bee has scored two beautiful penalties out of two kicks so far this year. Awesome!
Next, Dia Frampton & Grimes!
(Thanks Sony Music Malaysia for the tickets. Muah!)
