WHAT is Radio Pulze, you might ask. Go on, ask.
Well, it’s the NUS’ official campus radio station, and this week they’re putting on a gig featuring Basement In My Loft (woohoo!) and Pleasantry – which is made up of members from Amateur Takes Control, Lunar Node and Postbox.
The show is part of the radio’s Live Lounge programme, an initiative that they say “aims to expose the University demographic to homegrown musicians by providing a platform from which to showcase their awesome talent”. Yes, it’s a free-of-charge concert in an open-air environment and yes, it’s located in the National University of Singapore.
I remember performing at the NUS several times, as well as watching gigs there – most memorably, Debbie Gibson when she was younger and hotter, and The Oddfellows. And I remember the audience was always fantastic. Even when one of my amps blew up halfway through our set. Really. Smoke, sparks, the whole works.
At any rate, hopefully, there won’t be any such mishaps at this gig, which will happen on Sep 15, 7.30pm at the Yusof Ishak House on campus. Yes, it’s a school night, but if you like good music, you ought to go for this.
