"I want your love....
I want your revenge....
You and me could write a bad romance..."
(Bad Romance by Lady Gaga)
Last week, I watched a fabulous concert show at the Annexe Gallery (near Central Market) - Torch Song Massacre (Bad Romance Edition).
Milling about before the show:
Wow, look at those legs:
Our fabulous hostess with the mostest, Shelah:
She was AMAZING - had us all in stitches, laughing our guts out that night. Although her humour was definitely more on the raunchy side, she kept it clean(-ish) enough, with excellent comedic timing and topped with a good portion of crowd heckling. :)
First act - upbeat disco songs by Izlyn Ramli:
Second act - wonderful acoustic performance by Alex Koh:
Aiyoh. Can die loh.
His voice is low (baritone?) and sooooooo smooth - can melt icebergs.
Next, another amazing performance - nostlagic retro Chinese songs by Yudi:
I found her amazing...
Not only would I kill to have curves like hers, but her voice was like a magic time portal - close your eyes and you could imagine yourself being serenaded in a classic lounge in the 60's.
She interacts with an audience member with the help of her trusty frilly pink wrap - va va voom:
The witty Will Quah:
He sings too!
You poison my coffee just a little each day..."...
(He sang a really funny but murderous song by Weird Al Yankovich called "You don't love me anymore")
An Adam Lambert wannabe from Singapore:
Dramatic song by Melissa Saila from the P. Ramlee musical:
Next up, really funny Chinese songs by Wong Siew Jye:
Awesome Aaron Khaled, with his acoustic version of Alanis Morissette:
Shelah decided to help jazz up his performance with some extra lighting :)
The wonderful Vodka Vulvas - Zalina Lee, Ida Mariana and Maya Abdullah:
They even had the crowd dancing and singing along with them:
The last act - Shelah and that fella from Singapore again:
One last look at Shelah:
Everyone on stage at the end:
Finally, a photo of me with Shelah:
I know I've posted this up a little too late for you to go and catch the show this year* (sorry!)... but please look out for it next year! - It was such a fun night out. :)
(Best invested RM35/ 40 for almost 3 hours of entertainment!)
(* It was only running for 3 days, Friday 9 April till Sunday 11 April 2010)
(Hmmm... actually, even if I had posted this earlier, it still doesn't help much because apparently they were almost completely sold out by Friday night)
Some more details here on this year's performance.
If anyone involved with Torch Song Massacre is reading this (whether you performed/ did the lighting/ designed the flyer/ etc.): Thank you so much for a fantastic performance - I enjoyed every minute!
(The 2 songs per performer format is genius - leaves you wanting more, which is great).
