Torch Song Massacre @ The Annexe Gallery

Photo heavy post - Musical mayhem at the Annexe Gallery, KL....

"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:
Lots of interesting art pieces in the main gallery area...


A flyer:
Torch song massacre! :)...

Wow, look at those legs:
Fwoar...

Our fabulous hostess with the mostest, Shelah:
Shelah strikes a pose...

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:
Disco fever...

Second act - wonderful acoustic performance by Alex Koh:
Smooth...

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:
Lady in pink...

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:
Yudi says "rowr"...


The witty Will Quah:
Man with a sense of humour = sexy...

He sings too!
"You know I, even think it's kinda cute the way
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:
La la la laaaa...

Dramatic song by Melissa Saila from the P. Ramlee musical:
How could you, P. Ramlee??...

Next up, really funny Chinese songs by Wong Siew Jye:
"Oh, hungry ghooooooostsss..."....

Awesome Aaron Khaled, with his acoustic version of Alanis Morissette:
Simple but soulful...

Shelah decided to help jazz up his performance with some extra lighting :)
You light up my life...

The wonderful Vodka Vulvas - Zalina Lee, Ida Mariana and Maya Abdullah:
3 sexay ladies...

They even had the crowd dancing and singing along with them:
Unbreak my heeeaaaarrrtttt...

The last act - Shelah and that fella from Singapore again:
Wah, so tall!...

One last look at Shelah:
Statuesque in her hot red dress...

Everyone on stage at the end:
YAY! Great performance...

Finally, a photo of me with Shelah:
Aiyoh I feel so short...


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.


PS/
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).
