When we first heard the Cheating Sons, I was pretty sure these guys would be heading places if they played their cards right. And now they are, literally.

Yup, the Singapore quartet will be trundling to South Korea for Asia Spotlight, a two-day event that is part of the bigger Incheon Pentaport Music Arts Festival. Their slot is on Sep 18, so if you’re in the area – that’s the Bupyeong Art Center in Incheon – and want to listen to some good music, go check this one out. Performing along with the Cheating Sons are The White Eyes (from Taiwan) and Pia, The KOXX and Guckkasten (from Korea). Continue reading ‘Cheating Sons head into the great wide open’
So there we were at LASALLE College Of The Arts, to meet four students who were part of a group doing their Arts Management diploma project. In their case, it’s to organise a music concert called Love-In, to be held on Sunday (March 6) at Hong Lim Park. The concert will feature Typewriter, For This Cycle, King Kong Jane, The Pinholes, Zahidah, Basement In My Loft, Etc and Sean Harrison. And it’s an awareness concert against domestic violence.
The girls got a lot of help from UNIFEM, who not only provided contacts, but also got speakers down to talk at the outreach programmes the girls had organised as a prelude to the concert.
If you were at the Peranakan Museum during the Night Festival at 10pm, you would have seen this band called The Pinholes perform. And I have to say that they’re probably one of the most fun bands I’ve seen in quite a while.
About 25 people – 24 excluding myself – watched the show, which featured three additional musicians to the band’s line-up, including a trumpeter, a keyboardist and a satirist sitarist.
If you were at Orchard Central last weekend, you’d have seen their flea market thingy called Open Doors. But if you were there at around 1pm to 2pm, you’d have heard the joyous raucous sounds of The Pinholes. Yes, they of the huge sunnies and cool guitars fame.
Anyway, they did a set which consistsed of songs from their new upcoming album, Ready To Go, such as Sunshine and Preferably and also their entry for the YOG called Youth Of Gold. Although the lead guitar was just a tad too loud for my liking. And when I say “crowd” I really mean, two couples, a lady, three kids below 7 years old and me and my wife.
Which is a pity really, because The Pinholes are possibly one of the most fun bands I’ve seen in a long time. And they know how to roll with it too. They’re playing again next weekend at Peranakan’s museum (16 and 17 July) as part of Singapore Museum’s Night Festival. Check out their updates at http://thepinholes.posterous.com/
