Fred Perry Subculture’s
first ever Sub-Sonic Live performance happened earlier this month, and to put
it simply, it was a brilliant concert with a great lineup, backed by an amazing
lightshow. The way to the gig’s venue was paved with 30 vintage and still-loved
scooters from Simply Scooters, which provided a great teaser to the visual
treat that greeted you at the abandoned basketball court it was held in.
Fluorescent light tubes hung from basketball hoops and trees, illuminating the
set below with an ethereal red glow.
Of course, the main attraction were the incredible visuals provided by Brandon Tay of Syndicate, thrown upon a massive 5 metre high by 10metre wide projection canvas. The lightshow threw colours on the crowd as they were treated to a great lineup from The Sets Band, and MONSTER CAT. The gig also marked Astreal’s comeback performance, where they debut two new tracks; ‘Our Time Is Now’, and ‘Anatidaephobia’. It might’ve been a peculiar setup, to have the bands play behind the canvas, but it was a concert to remember nonetheless. The night was then brought to a close by indie DJ collective, Ruffians, with a mix packed with hits from Pink Floyd, The Strokes, Two Door Cinema Club and Vampire Weekend.
Sub-Sonic Live @ The Court was on 9 June 2012 at 1 Kay Siang Road.
